I would love to stay out there and train in the rain.
I was in that video
Those were Powermax KB and have had no issues. I hate them but that is another story. I have Muscle Driver at our facility and we use them inside, outside, rain or shine. The have some scratches from being dropped on asphalt and the finish came off but still no signs of rust.

By the way, I love the Muscle Driver Bells but again that is another thread.

Re: Kettlebell Maintenance: Can I get them wet?

I do not recommend using them in the rain. They will begin to melt after 30-45 minutes and your 1.5pd will be a 1pd in about 3 hours. It is iron! Take care of it use some rust nuetralizer if it becomes rusty or just deal with it. You could probably even coat it yourself with something and just keep up on it when it chips and it will be fine.

Where I work we have dozens of kettlebells that have been outside in the middle of PT fields for @ a year now w/ no signs of damage. Heat, cold, rain, humidity - nothing has hurt them.
