Hey Charlie,
I'v been using polyester for the past two months.
TNF Hydrenaline it's called.
It seems to me to be the best stuff I have ever used.
Very, very water resistant (I sat in the rain for 10+ 
hours and never got wet).
Wind proof, very breathable and much lighter than g-tex.
Seems to wear like iron (I did a lot of bush-beating through
some very thick brush -stickers -briars and can see no wear.
This year I'm gonna leave the gore at home for my AT thru,
and just use this stuff .

A little more time on the trail will take care of the pork.
Life is short.
