Well it has "Protective reinforcement in manz areas" so I think you're covered :rofl

With motorcycling I'm finding the word "waterproof" means that the product will survive being wet. Like a Speedo.

Only the best manufacturers understand that when you stitch together panels of waterproof fabric that it will leak like a bitch at all the seams, and that you MUST seam seal the product to make it actually waterproof.

At least your manz will be dry

Generally the Polo Pharao stuff is pretty good. Waterproofness is not a question of the membrane, it is generally a question of how well all the seams are sealed and how well stitching and glue holds up.

In the 90s I had some good experience with Pharao stuff. Don't know how good their current stuff is, I wasn't riding for 10 years and then I started with BMW gear and some assorted other manufacturers. Nearly no Polo stuff though as I'm in the US now. But when I was back in Germany in June, I found their stuff pretty good and bought some and brought it here.
