As tested, absolutely waterproof. It only requires to be shaken off and it becomes dry again, as the fabric doesn't absor moisture. I ordered mine one size bigger than required, as the sizes are a little smaller than "normal", and it's fine.

The previous review is about waterproofness. Upon receipt of my Bushmaster I tested the breathability immediately. Just curious about this aspect. I walked for 2 hours 4:35 mph at a temperature of 7C. The Bushmaster breathed excellent and held no vapor trapped. A beautifully finished smock. Excellent craftsmanship. And first class service and delivery by The Bushcraft Store. Highly recommended.
Ok I'm a Kiwi living in Scandinavia some 10 years. You could say that my review is biased as the Bushmaster Anorak is originally from NZ but I've had the good fortune of having tested most breathable fabrics in the Forces and in the wild. The initial impression of this garment is positive. ALOT of jacket for 200 Pounds and something any bushcrafter should have in their arsenal. Found the jacket very quiet and completely ok for stalking which is its main use. Go on treat yourself .-)
