My old Gore Bike Wear Oxygen jacket finally died after 3 yrs of very heavy use (approx 5hrs/wk average) so it was time to replace. I've always bought goretex and find it appears to work better and last longer. I'd prefer to get proshell/XCR rather than paclite as it's more breathable and robust though bulkier & heavier but haven't found a cycle jacket made of this for about 5 yrs.
I prefer the fit & colour of the Path II to the Oxygen which is v tight. I'll avoid using the pockets as with heavy wear I've found these break down eventually.
I've not come across a better jacket and if you use it enough spending less is probably a false economy.
