I have resisited buying ugly raincoats for yrs now but am fed up with being wet and vow to be prepared this winter...probably won't rain until march now.

Is it worth paying for gore-tex?

I wouldn't pay that - I have a Regatta one as well that I do the school run in. It was cheap as chips from TK Maxx and keeps me dry! (Well the top half anyway!)

yes that's the other option,was it waterproof enough?

It depends on how much you use it. It would be worth it for me because I walk everywhere.

In fact, I will bookmark that link for my future reference.

agree dropdeadfred,it's rather a lot on an essentially unflattering piece of clothing

I have a Goretex jacket and a waterproof/breathable one . Both do the job equally well imho.

Dh is into cycling.

He is also constantly annoyingly surprised and shocked at how much clothes are blah blah....hmm but even he says gortex is the DB's and worth the money.

Certainly as a material for sports clothes because, it's very very lightweight and breathable. I think you'd be getting a good coat there, but it is a lot of money.
