Truly Waterproof Outer Shell
I am looking for truly waterproof jacket and pants with a truly waterproof outer shell -- not interested in needing a waterproof lining. Intent is to wear over street clothes most of the time. Want decent venting. I have read a gazillion reviews and forums about waterproof outer shells that come with a fully waterproof liner -- makes me skeptical (why do you need a waterproof liner if you have a waterproof shell???)
For every suit that I research that I think is the Holy Grail, I read a few forum reviews of stories saying they leak.
Most suits you have to buy, have shipped to you, hope they fit and work -- if they don't, you have to pray that the manufacturer will take it back.
HELP!!! WHAT IS THE BEST IN YOUR EXPERIENCE??? Waterproof and comfortable (cost not an object). Manufacturer will take it back if you don't like it.
