Says it's waterproof but rating says water resistant

Looks like a great jacket, especially for the price. I'm wary though of the "waterproof" part. In the specs for this item the waterproof rating is 5,000mm. Sierra's own chart (see waterproof link) says that less than 10,000mm provides "Minimal protection for activities like running and hiking in intermittent light rain and snow".
