If it's good enough for a couple of hours in Ner Zullend rain, it will be good enough for any weather I'm ever going to ride in.
My experience is that the Flash Gordon is fantastic for cold wind and light showers. But anything more than half an hour of heavy rain will see you getting wet underneath. That's OK, I have a Mont Hammerhead as well for the heavy stuff. In Unzud I can't see the Flash Gordon doing for 2 hrs of rain And in Ballarat... nooo! But the Storm Trooper is the one to get for any real rain.

My son has one, uses it for touring rides. PM me and I can tell more.
