What 100% waterproof jacket?

Recommended Posts

There's no such thing as 100% waterproof for normal outdoor clothing. There are degrees of water resistance commonly known as mm of hydrostatic pressure and the higher the number the longer it will keep you dry. Good quality wax jackets are pretty capable but need re-waxing fairly regularly. If price matters, go straight past the gun shops and country stores and head to the climbing and hiking type outdoor shops. You'll get a more waterproof jacket for a third of the price.

If 100% really matters then oilskins are about the only option.
