Hi, it does work like a traditional Barbour or Belstaff. We have them made in Birmingham by a company that does a lot of waxed weatherwear. Seen a few out in the rain and they seem to work fine. It will not be as good as a modern fabric such as used on motorcycle waterproofs etc but it is old technology this waxed stuff. Hope this helps.
