DESIGNED TO WORK WITH YOUR ARMOUR AND GEAR.
The lightweight, low bulk Monsoon Rain Shirt is specifically designed to be worn underneath your body armour, chest rig or other gear. It is therefore made out of a special laminate mix, which makes the jacket thin, breathable and lightweight where it is covered with gear, and very robust wherever it is not.
Lots of storage in the upper and lower sleeve pockets, contributes perfectly to the compatibility with your body armour and gear.
A SPECIAL LAMINATE MIX.
The Monsoon Rain Shirt is built to keep you dry, even in the most extreme rainy weather. Additionally, we wanted to make the jacket easy to stow away and at the same time super durable. So we combined two different laminates, both based on a super breathable and reliable waterproof high-tech membrane.
Areas where you have more abrasion, like shoulders, lower back and the sleeves are made out of a 3-layer laminate.The rest of the jacket is made out of an extremely lightweight and low bulk 2.5-layer laminate.
The two upper arm and two lower arm pockets give you sufficient space for your most essential smaller gear, which you want to have within your hands reach. If you have only one arm free for opening the upper arm pocket, simply bite the strap above the zipper and get the necessary tension to open it.
For better wear comfort and to reduce a possible risk of secondary fragments underneath the body armor, there are no pockets or zipper pullers in that area.
COMFORT ON THE LONG RUN.
Ever stood outside in rainy weather for a longer period of time and felt that cold and damp feeling in your shoulders? It’s as if you are getting wet, but what you actually feel is the cold conducting from the outside to your skin. This phenomenon is called a thermal bridge.
In order to avoid these uncomfortable thermal bridges, the Monsoon Rain Shirt has built-in air/pac® inserts in the shoulder area. The 8 mm thick 3D mesh inserts give you the necessary insulation between your skin and the outside temperature and thus prevent the formation of thermal bridges.
Due to their foamy structure, the air/pac® inserts also distribute the weight of your plate carrier or any other gear you might carry.
THE NEW GENERATION OF HOODS.
The hoods of the past limited your view, if not immediately then for sure when you turned your neck by 90 degrees. You could strap them with elastic adjusters, but after a while your head was soaked from sweat and you couldn’t hear anything since the laminate was rubbing on your ears.
Enter the amazing Hood/Harness® system.
All you have to do is to adjust the system to your head size the first time you wear it and after that it will flawlessly follow your head movements, allowing you unhindered vision in extreme weather conditions.
Since you don’t need to strap the hood to your head, the space between your head and the laminate is kept, which keeps the air circulation in this area and doesn’t limit your hearing.
OPEN WHEN IT GETS TOO HOT.
Long side zippers can either be used as ventilation openings when it gets too hot or simply as an access point to the gear worn underneath.
