TAG is selling some old stock of Adventure tech reversible Goretex jackets in many sizes. They have huge stock. Prices are very low.

Woodland to Desert for 70 USD: http://www.tacticalassaultgearstore.com ... acket.aspx

Desert to Night Desert for 75 USD: http://www.tacticalassaultgearstore.com ... acket.aspx

I have 2 of them, and I love them, pack into their own pocket. If you want proper fit, go one size up in width, length is OK.

I was always curious how the membrane performs in such double sided parkas. Do you have any experience with them and could you be able to share your thoughts?

This is very old design from late 80's, but it works good. Goretex membrane doesn't have sides, it's just layer with very small holes, so it works both ways. Problem is, when the inner side (lining) which separate fabric get's soaked, it stops breathing. Today reversible goretex is laminated from both sides, so it should work properly.

I'm pretty sure I saw an episode of "How it works" where a developer at Gore told about the propperties regarding the different sides of the GoreTex laminate?

Is the diffence in temperature or the layering of the membrane and the shell that makes it oneway?

Yes, laminate, but membrane itself is just layer of PTFE with holes small enought, to hold drop od water, but large enough to pass water molecule (steam).
