Funny, the boots and gloves I just got in the mail are waterproof, in fact more so than much of my higher dollar gear.
I think perhaps the waterproofness fades with time, hence my older name brand stuff that leaks a little here and there now.
so these might not hold up for long, if they become non-waterproof, they will get returned, simple enough.
