Those look great! I've had mine for a year now, and they have had a hard year but look great IMO. I would't worry about getting them wet - Rancourt doesn't use any product on their shell, so it is less likely that you will get dreaded "welts" when getting the shell wet. Exhibits a and b: (taken about 3 minutes apart this past Saturday after trudging through the wet yard).
