None of the pockets on mine are waterproof but there is one on the inner rain jacket.
Partly because I sweat like a fat kid at the buffet... seriously though we're planning on starting off in South America and then heading to Africa or Europe. I was originally considering the stretch kevlar, but Wayne suggested that at slow speeds or doing any non-asphalt work, the mesh would be the better choice.
