Its waterproof rating is dependent on its use. This jacket is considered a soft-shell jacket, not a hard-shell. For 100% waterproofing, you want a fully seam-taped Gore-Tex, eVent or Neoshell hard-shell jacket.

This WindStopper soft-shell will stop 95% of the moisture from October through April . The WindStopper membrane will block all but a downpour. This material is made to be more breathable than waterproof. This is more of a 3 season piece than a 4 season jacket. Hope this helps. :)
