On the soft shell products page there is a short video demonstrating the water shedding. Our jackets are technically only water resistant. Water proofing requires special double seems and special zippers, typically the price for those type of jackets starts around $300 USD.
The sweatshirt versions of our jackets have polyester pockets that are water resistant, so this will protect your electronics in a surprise shower. Our older models can withstand about 2 hours in the rain and the newer Joey models can last about 1 hour in the rain. The material they are made from is a trade off, the more water resistant it is then the less it breathes.
Our Travel Jackets are made by both a family friend in Northern China as well as an MCT (Clothing Manufacturer). Our Family friend is a small independent master tailor. We have been to her shop many times. She employs 4-5 adults. She sources our materials from her local suppliers for quality control. Our MCT employs 30-35 people and all are adults we have been to their facility many times. We are aware of the many abuses in the garment industry as a whole in fact more than half of the worlds imported garments are made by people who are not paid more than $1 per day. We not willing to ever use a child labor shop from a impoverished third world country to manufacture our Jackets.
All the pockets are water-resistant already. However, if you would like to add water resistance to the outer shell of the Sweatshirt Jacket and do not have chemical sensitivities, we recommend adding Scotchgard to the outside.

Most people need to consider ordering a size larger than their shirt size (especially if you plan on using the zip-in liner or like to wear sweaters). Please refer to the size chart for more information. It is the big black button near the price.
Unlike buttons, zippers have no established right or wrong side. The right side zipper is pretty much a USA thing only. It has a bit of history if you want to google it. The rest of the world is however primarily left. About 40% of our business is international so we do not make separate versions just for this particular USA fashion custom. So we designed all of our jackets to zip on the left after testing demonstrated that left side zippers were easier to use for both men and women.
Our jackets have been meticulously designed to provide optimal functionality. The current design is what has been tested and proven to provide maximum security and usability. Some jackets on the market have more pockets, but they do not add value due to being too small to use, lacking secure closure and proper placement.
A large iPad will comfortably fit into the largest pocket, except for in a size S jacket. Size S will fit an iPad Mini or a Kindle.
