Re: Waterproof Jackets Gill vs Musto vs...?

Maybe late to jump into this thread, but I am looking at the same for myself and found the fabric between these 2 jackets are different onthe waterproof technical level.

The Musto BR2 offers a water resistance of hydrostatic waterhead of 10,000mm to 15,000mm. (Their MPX is 28 000, and the HPX 28 000)

The Gill OS2 offers a water resistance of hydrostatic waterhead of 20 000+ (Gill OS1 20 000+ but higher breathability and durability than Os1)

The hydrostatic waterhead measures how tall a column of water the fabric can withstand before water starts to seep through. A Hydrostatic Head of 10,000mm HH means that a fabric could hold a column of water that is 10,000mm tall.

I live in Norway, coast can be wet and rough, so I will be trying the Gill for the first time, the water specifications caught my attention.
