If it doesn't have to be Arcteryx I'd suggest the Rab Kinetic 2.0 Jacket or Rab Kinetic Alpine 2.0 Jacket. Very breathable and waterproof however you do loose the full windproofing of a hardshell however that will always be a trade-off for better breathability.

Looking for a pant to wear when rainy in Seattle
I would thoroughly recommend a pair of Rab kinetic alpine 2.0 pants for rain proof trousers. They’re quite technical, but in the all black colour way they are completely wearable around town. They are waterproof like a pair of shell trousers but are soft and have stretch.

Need help choosing trousers
Rab Kinetic 2.0 or Rab Kinetic Alpine 2.0 Pants are the way to go. They won't have the wind resistance of hardshell pants/trousers but they are completely waterproof and breathe very well. Edit: They're also comfortable enough to wear on their own, rather than on top of whatever you're already wearing.

Perfect lightweight waterproof jacket
Very lightweight, slim fit and stylish. Can be worn casually as well. This is a true waterproof softshell jacket. It fits true to size. Hood is very well designed. Highly satisfied. And the Backcountry Gear service was excellent.
