The men's 686 Snaggle Operation Jacket has a 5.000g/m, which is essentially a rating for how well a garment 'breathes', yet repels water. Imagine a 1' X 1' mesh screen with holes. If you have fewer holes per sq inch, then the holes would have to be larger, thus allowing more to seep through; versus a patch with many holes that are tinier which stop smaller particles, even water droplets, yet still allow air to move through the screen. The 5.000g/m is a rating for this analogy, but applied to fabric.
