I've never owned a Tourmaster jacket or suit but I did own an Aerostitch R-3 one piece suit for about 2 weeks. Despite attending the factory to be fitted, it fit like painter's overalls and leaked in several places. The good folks at Aerostitch refunded my money without hesitation.

I also own an Aerostitch Transit 2-piece waterproof leather suit and a 2-piece Klim Badlander suit. Both very expensive and they also both (eventually) leak.

I prefer "waterproof" suits over rain suits (which also leak). I don't like packing a rain suit or having to put it on at the side of the road.

It has been my experience that given enough rain (intensity/duration) every suit/jacket will leak. Buy what fits and what you like. It doesn't matter.
