Well if you're after both very tough and breathable then Crux's Torq is probably better than either of the Berghaus ones.
If thats too heavy, then you've got the basic trade off between the two fabrics 'right' but no idea what it means in practice. If it matters the Asgard seems to be about 40 grams lighter. Also very much worth considering the demand pull on.

I am also looking to use it in summer so do you reckon eVent is definitely the way to go?
I have no complaints with my Rab Demand. If you were interested specifically in superlight waterproofs and have a backpackinglight.com subscription, they did a 'state of the market' on them recently which might be worth a look... the Rab Demand was too heavy to be accepted into that test!
If it is warm and humid, or you're working hard in moderate temperatures, no waterproof fabric will save you from getting sweaty. Most current-gen brand named fabrics are pretty good, and the differences between them are not massive.
