Anybody know what the waterproof/breath rating is on this jacket? Salomon website says 20k/32k but that is for a different colors and it sounds way too good?

Hey there Taylor!

Since this jacket just has a Pertex Sheild and that membrane doesn't officially have a claim to its waterproofness breathability, the closest we can say it is around 20k/20k!
