More info on the new 2.5 layer event fabric is available on a press release on the event fabric website www.eventfabric.com/press_release.php.
It looks like its event coming up with a fabric that is a "rival" to the Gore made lightweight active shell. It will be interesting to see if any UK firms like Rab or Montaine produce garments in the new version of event. Both companies have recently brought out lines of lightweight waterproofs using the Pertex Shield + 2.5 layer fabric. Will they now switch to the new event fabric?.
Nah, Event was already the rival to Active shell (The net weights, cost etc seem to be very similar.).

Well up on the main site here now They did already have a 2.5 layer, pertex shield+ jacket with pit zips this season so not a shock that they've done a 2.5 layer Event version.
Basically trading the 2.5 vs 3 layer thing for extra features at the same price/weight point I guess.
