It looks like Laura responded in a different thread:
I personally use a lightweight marmot coat, with arm-pit zippers, which works pretty well. I'm not sure if they have yet found a truly breathable and waterproof material (although they all will claim that they have). It's about four-years old, so I need to re-water-proof it every year (or a couple times a year), but it's still peforming sufficiently well.

I really appreciate your input and your link to Laura's thread!
What an unique hiking year we are having in the PNW!
We tried to hike on the 4th of July weekend to no luck! The snow has decided to be the queen of the trails this year!!!

Yeah, I'm itching to get out and do some good backpacks, but currently waiting out the snow. Since I'm self employed, I decided to just work through the 4th of July weekend to hopefully save up some time off for when the snow does retreat!
