he was wrong! my friend and i were to play golf yesterday afternoon. after looking at the weather forecast and 0% chance of rain until evening, we decided to go. there was a light sprinkle on the way, so i checked my phone to see there was a bunch of rain to the west of us, and the forecast had changed to light rain for another 30-45 minutes. so we figured no big deal. we can play the first few holes in some light rain. by the 7th hole, the forecast had changed again to say rain all afternoon. needless to say we only got 9 holes in. but i had my FJ dry joy jacket and icons, so i was dry. however i just convinced my friend to pick up a pair of FJ sports. he remarked mid round how nice they were and how dry his feet were.
so at the end of the day, 9 holes testing out the waterproofing in the rain was better than 0 holes!
