Am I the only one who thought a waterproof coat by its very nature should be waterproof?  Well if I am more fool me, however I suspect not.  Is it too much to ask for something to simply do what it says on the tin?  I found out this morning that my “waterproof” coat may be wind proof but not actually waterproof.  Maybe I am doing it a miss-service; it is waterproof if a rain shower consists of several drops.  Much more than this and I may as well have worn a bin liner!

Time to investigate different levels of waterproof coat me thinks.
