Q1: Anyone know if the bag needs to be weather proofed from time to time?

Q2: Anyone have any experience with other frame bag that do a better job of staying water tight?
I have a Revelate frame bag as well (two, actually). They are not nor are they advertised as being waterproof, so it was your initial experience of keeping things dry that was the exception.
Don't complain about the weather and cower in fear. It's all good weather. Just different.
