What is the bibs water resistance characteristics?

Responded on

WINDSTOPPER from Gore can best be described as more than water-resistant, the only reason it cannot be tagged as "waterproof" is because the membrane primarily stops wind and isn't designed to be waterproof- there's other membranes for that. It is leaps and bounds ahead of most manufacturers DWR or "water resistant" applications. If you want to block wind, look no further.

This bibtight has WINDSTOPPER(r) through the front of the leg, the seat and parts of the back of the leg. Water can not make it through the material however with prolonged pressure, it could make it through the seams as they aren't sealed.
