socaleverydayrider:I just wore this jacket in fairly heavy rain at highway speeds for extended periods of time here in San Diego. What I can tell you is that the shell material itself didn't have any water penetration after 45 minutes of driving rain, but it was definitely starting to get soaked. The big thing was the long zippers on the arms. Water completely penetrated those, which makes sense since they're the most exposed to the blast of air and wet. The gore tex liner stopped the water from actually reaching me, but there was a noticeable cooling effect just from heat conduction via the wet. I was totally dry in any case.Dec 15, 2012
socaleverydayrider:No. You have to have the liner in. The shell appears to have some sort of water resistant coating on the surface, as it deflected all the rain that hit it on my 30 min rain ride the other day, but given enough time, the moisture would seep through and contact the Gore Tex liner, which would stop it. There are two waterproof pockets in this jacket, the rest are not.Nov 13, 2012
99rtrider:While I think you could treat the outer Cordura layer with water repellent, to be fully water proof, you will need to use the Gore-Tex liners for the jacket and pants. I have both, and they fit together nicely, and I would wear in summer shower without concern, but for heavy, long term wet weather riding, the Gore-Tex is a must.Aug 30, 2012
