I far prefer just plain waterproof, not breathable, with plenty of ventilation. IMHO, there is no such thing as both waterproof and breathable. My experience with a number of different types of WP/B stuff is that it doesnt breathe worth a darn and lets the rain in. My rain gear is made of silnylon, and it's both very lightweight and a lot cheaper than the so-called breathable stuff. The jacket is a size too large for me, which means there's more ventilation room. And if it's so warm that I sweat in it, I just leave the rain gear off and get wet. My clothing dries in 20 minutes when the rain stops.

Your mileage, of course, may vary.

Love the "glass rain gear"! lol
