Not really waterproof
 from Northern Minnesota,  Jun 17, 2012

I had hoped for something waterproof for use in the Minnesota Boundary Waters Canoe Area. The jacket and pants are ok for light use, yet not for the BWCA where you can be canoeing in sustained rain for hours upon end. I sought to replace my old Gill outfit with this item, yet I am disappointed that it is not waterproof like the manufacturer claimed. It is only two years old, yet in spite of all the good design and features, which are many, my butt and elbows got wet and to me, that is the acid test in any "rain" gear. BWCA Mike

  • How accurate was the sizing? Very good
  • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Product is acceptable, yet not waterproof. In prolonged boating in the rain, my elbows get wet and the crotch on the pants leak, so your butt will get wet.
  • Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Stiching in the crotch of the pants was weak and came apart. Not waterproof in the crotch by any means. Fabric seems to be tearing from sewn seam on the front of the jacket.
