Outdoor Research's Axiom Jacket employs state of the art GoreTex Active technology to produce a waterproof jacket with very high breathability for active pursuits.
Outdoor Research says:
This multiple award-winning storm shell is engineered for nearly all of your adventures – fast-and-light alpine climbs, all-day backcountry tours and is even great skiing. The lightweight and extremely breathable GORE-TEX® Active of the Axiom Jacket provides complete waterproof protection, but breathes like no other fully waterproof shell.

This new version of the Axiom Jacket is even better than before thanks to updated features and styling. Outdoor Research have kept the Gore-Tex Active fabric, which is the most breathable Gore-Tex fabric to date while still retaining high levels of waterproof protection. It also has two way stretch, which is pretty important if you are making a jacket for active pursuits - the combination of a light weight, highly breathable Goretex and stretch fabrics for manouverability makes this a jacket designed for users who are active in the mountains, be it climbing, scrambling or making fast headway fastpacking over rough terrain.
The outer feel of the jacket is quite soft (for a hardshell) and it feels comfortable to wear - it also moves freely without excess noise. The Wire-Brimmed Halo-Hood is helmet compatible and the pockets have been placed so you can still use them while wearing a harness. Internally the pockets have a mesh lining, this enhances the jacket's breathability as its not compromised by more than a single layer of fabric.
With a 20D outer fabric its a pretty tough jacket too, suitable for all year round use
