Outlier's water resistant stuff is what I would consider waterproof. They were the only pants I brought on vacation to Cuba and I spilled beer, wine, water and food on them. It almost all just rolled off. If it didn't, I press a napkin on it (once I realized) and they were dry. I understand if you want to see it all bounce off, but I'll be damned if I could find a way to ruin my Outlier Chinos.
