I purchased this jacket 18 months ago in preparation for the coming season of 2015. having used it throughout the season I can say that it was waterproof to a fashion, did leak in torrential rain but that's what overproofs were made for. Recently I was involved in a motorbike v car collision when a very polite American gent pulled out of a side road on me. I sustained multiple injuries (broken foot, multiple rib fractures and a haematoma on my right lung and damaged ligaments/tendons in my right shoulder). When I arrived at the hospital the A&E staff were forced to cut the jackets and all my other kit off, the jacket sustained minor grazing (from the 20-30ft road skid) despite the accident but destroyed 2 pairs of surgical scissors.
I HIGHLY RECCOMEND THIS JACKET IF YOU LIKE YOR SKIN. This jacket if adjusted to fit correctly is a superb jacket and one I would definitely purchase again without a moments hesitation.

British Army Gore Tex Trousers and Smock
keithblade
If anyone wants waterproof clothing on a tight budget then look no further than your local army and navy surplus store.

Ask them for the British Army Gre Tex Trousers and Smock.

I have ridden my bikes in the past in them, I now own a proper Gore Tex HG suit and the Army stuff is used for jet washing the conservatory! But what I can tell you is that it is cheap and 100% waterproof, nothing gets through.

It does have a couple of shortcomings in that it has no pockets and if you get a size that fits too well it can be hard to pull over your bike clothing.

However for price and doing the job to a full degree it may just be the answer to some of our readers.
