I have this Sugoi jacket and it is really good. http://ca-store.sugoi.com/collections/mens-bike/products/72758u-rsx-neoshell-jacket. No venting other than the front zip but it seems to breath really well. The DWR has stood up really well too. On the other hand I also have the Acre neoshell jacket and its DWR is pitiful. The fit and cut and pockets are better although it is a slim fit but I am disappointed by the not durable DWR. It may be because the Sugoi can be machine dried but not the Acre. I may machine dry the Acre next time to see if that helps.
As a sweaty man beast I highly recommend Polartec Neo Shell jackets. No where near as waterproof as the Gore fabrics but I've never found anything Gotetex that I don't turn into an Amazon green house unless it's freezing.
I had ditched jackets in all but the worst rain (in favour of a couple light wool layers and not stopping) until I got my Acre.
That said, I definitely put it in the dryer and I also wash it in a DWR renewing product every ten or so washes.
On low heat in my machine I haven't seen any issues after a couple years of washing and drying.
