Agreed.  I'm not aware of any company making a cycling specific product that is waterproof to the same extent as my backpacking / ski touring gear (other than 7mesh and Gore Bike Wear).  The fit of Gore brand shorts I had before I owned the Revos left much to be desired.  For pants, it must be possible to make a bike-specific pant in a full gore-tex active or pro fabric but maybe the market is just too small for anyone to make such a product that fits really well for trail riding.  I've never encountered a proper waterproof fabric that had any stretch so maybe the difficulty is that the tailoring that would be required to make a proper trail pant from gore-tex would be too difficult or too expensive.  As mentioned above, the Agents are very good in that respect. Maybe adding more dwr to the Agents will help keep them dry a bit longer for my commute.  I'll try that this week.
