10k is waterproof, but 10k ``breathability'' is pretty low. just as important is the DWR (durable water-resistant) coating on the outer fabric. You can be dry on the inside, but if the outer fabric is soaking up water you're not going to be very comfortable.

There's a couple of terrific essays on outerwear you can find at the blistergear review site, which will tell you more than you really want to know. the 201is the more useful, the 101 is very techie about the relative performance of various waterproof membranes like Gore-tex, eVent, etc.
