  1. At least the waxed cotton was waterproof unlike some of the so called stuff nowadays.

    1. Waxed cotton was waterproof for a while but after the first time you reproofed it, it never was quite as good again. As for modern stuff, you're always taking a risk unless it's Gore-Tex. After all W.L. Gore (makers of Gore-Tex) wouldn't put this statement on their website if it didn't work:

      'If you are not completely satisfied with the waterproofness, windproofness, or breathability of your GORE-TEX® product, then we will repair it, replace it, or refund your purchase price. No matter which of our trusted customers makes the product, if it has the GORE-TEX® label on it, we have certified that it is durably waterproof, windproof and breathable for its intended use.'

      Why buy anything else?
