Rainlegs protect the thighs from rain, wind and cold temperatures. The product is wind- and waterproof and weighs just 140 g. The leg protectors are open at the back of the leg, which prevents the formation of condensation and keeps your garments dry.
According to the European standard EN343, for materials and products to be considered waterproof they need to meet specific criteria. This criteria includes the amount of water pressure (psi) they can withstand before leaking or an “mm/24 hours” rating which equals the amount of rainfall a fabric can withstand in a single day before water starts to leak through. Equally important are the abrasion resistance quality of the membrane, the coating and waterproof quality of the seams and zips – these should be laminated or welded.
The slightly water-repellent wind protection is achieved primarily through a membrane. The windproof soft shell material provides perfect protection against the dangerous wind chill effect, due to the convective dissipation of body heat, which as a result produces a higher rate of evaporation.
