I have been wearing mine for 4 years. It is the most water resistant jacket I have ever had.
My experance in heavey rain with this jacket may only be 10 or 12 times, but I can not remember the outer shell feeling like it had absorbed much water. Yes it gets wet, but it also drys out quick. I do wash it every year in the soap they recomend, I think that helps keep the shell from absorbing much water.
Get the pants also they work just as great as the jacket.
