water-resistant materials, those made with a waterproof membrane such as
Gore-Tex or OutDry are impervious to water. Some waterproof membranes also
allow sweat and water vapor to exit from the wearer’s body through the material,
while still keeping water droplets from entering. This is called breathability.
