Frabill has blended the award-winning elements of its FXE Stormsuit with a cool, breathable core and a lighter build to produce the new Frabill Rainsuit.
The Rainsuit’s jacket and bibs use 330-denier nylon treated with DuPont Teflon to create garments that are both waterproof and windproof. Despite the tough exterior, the suit still breathes thanks to an innovative mesh lining that draws air through the material.
Design Engineer, Chris Leonard, explains: “The lining promotes convective heat transfer from the body, making this an ideal suit for warmer, humid conditions. The generous patterning also allows room for extra layers on those cooler days.”
The Rainsuit includes a two-way rigid, brimmed, adjustable hood, water repellant cuffs and a bungee-sealable waist. Other features include large, waterproofed outer pockets and weatherproof zippers fitted with dual, external storm flaps and a rain gutter.
With fashion in mind, the smoky grey style suit uses ergonomic curved joints, a low rise bib cut and a lightweight structure to allow freedom of movement. The bib incorporates 500 denier nylon knees with removable pads, cam-buckle shoulder straps and side-seam D-ring kill switch tethers. “This suit will exceed consumer expectations,” added Leonard.
The Frabill Rainsuit jacket and bib are separately available in sizes ranging from small to 4XL.
