waxed? yeah, for bikini lines
I had a Belstaff jacket and pants in the early '70s.......
what POS, the wax/dirt stains everything and stinks
my mid '70s German rain suit is still absolutely waterproof, its made of Herculon and doesn't breathe at all......any exertion and you sweat like a pig
I have Cordura/Gortex jackets and pants........BUT, if I KNOW its going to pour, out comes my ~40 year old safety orange rain suit and kitchen waste basket liners inside my boots......I can walk in 18" of water with them and stay dry....the next day the boots are cold and wet but my feet warm and dry
