Is this jacket waterproof?

Responded on

This jacket is not waterproof as it is not seam sealed. That said, WINDSTOPPER® is highly water resistant as water will not be able to permeate the body or sleeves of the jacket. If you are seeking a waterproof jacket, you should check out the Alp-X jacket at http://www.hucknroll.com/mountainbike/GBW0057/Gore-Bike-Wear-ALP-X-Jacket-Womens.html

I have the new "13" ALP-X 2.0 Jacket, and it is waterproof & windproof. But this particular jacket (convertible) has been awarded by Mtn.bike mag. (well, one of those mags.); you can simply go to www.gorebikewear.com
For added protection, try the windstopper baselayers, too, and their thermo windstopper helmet cap (under the helmet) for those cooler/cold days.
