    As per title, looking for real life long-term ownership experience of waterproof trousers. Am a relatively recent convert to MTB trousers and now wouldn’t consider anything else in winter. Decided that soft shell type w/proof is worth investigating. All the reviews I read are obviously on brand new kit, DWR in perfect condition, never washed or wettted out etc. Real life scenario is more like 1) get home looking like I’ve been rolling around a building site 2) hose myself down after cleaning bikes. 3) clothes into washer for 15 min rinse. 4) waterproof items (jackets etc.) removed and left to drop dry. 5) repeat thrice weekly for 6 months.

    I have a suspicion that after a few months of regular use, the w/proof-ness will have effectively disappeared. Hoping that somebody will prove me wrong!
