Showerproof fabric is fabric that resists water. You could pour a glass of water over it and watch the liquid simply form beads and run off. However for a garment to be completely waterproof it must have its seams specially sealed on the inside and a protected zip, so that rain cannot get inside at all. This, of course adds to the cost of the item, so it’s not something to build in unless you need it to function in heavy rain. You won’t usually be wearing your training gear climbing mountains in torrential downpours, so we haven’t added these features. However, you should find they protect you against all but heavy rain, allowing you to keep training despite the British weather.
