Is the shell itself, without the liner, waterproof?
Can you just close all the flaps and have a water proof jacket? The same question for the Torno pants.
No. You have to have the liner in. The shell appears to have some sort of water resistant coating on the surface, as it deflected all the rain that hit it on my 30 min rain ride the other day, but given enough time, the moisture would seep through and contact the Gore Tex liner, which would stop it. There are two waterproof pockets in this jacket, the rest are not.
