WATERPROOF vs. WATER-REPELLENT vs WATER- RESISTANT - what’s the difference?
Water-resistant (sometimes spelt water-resistent): these items are able to resist the penetration of water to some degree, but not entirely. Water-repellent (sometimes misspelt water-repellant): these items are not easily penetrated by water, especially as a result of being treated for such a purpose with a surface coating. Waterproof: these items are impervious to water.
