Well, it's been a while since I posted, and unfortunately I haven't had a chance to ride a full day in heavy weather, but I've had some pretty serious commutes since my last post with heavy rain, wind and road wash. Not a drop got in.
So I think the leaking problems some have had might be anomolies, even though they've had more than one jacket that leaked. I can't imagine that in some of the weather I've been in that if there was even a chance it could leak, it would have.
Badlands gets my vote as a good weather proof suit . . . I guess this summer will be the deciding factor on an all-round adventure suit good for warm weather as well.
