Gore-Tex"Guaranteed to keep you dry" is the slogan of Gore-Tex. This material has existed for more than 30 years and is well-known. Garments in Gore-Tex are wind and waterproof and breathable. The Gore-Tex layer makes water stay out but humid air out. Gore-Tex garments are found in thousands of shapes and kinds. Some also provide waterproof stitching on zippers and pockets and generally keep you dry.
Even if it will be expensive at purchase you will normally keep the garment for many years. If the fabric gets damaged you can turn it in for stitching and they will repair the damaged Gore-Tex membrane.
Note that Gore-Tex is a brand! There are other similiar materials that are just as good, or even better.
