Rain pants - breathable rain protection

Anyone who works outside in wind and weather knows that a good pair of rain pants is indispensable. They defy almost any precipitation, but also snow, fog and ground moisture. These properties make rainwear an ideal companion for anyone who works outside or for anyone who regularly rides a bike to work. In our assortment you will find rain pants in different colors. Below we will tell you everything you need to know about the waterproof pants:

Rain pants are versatile

Nothing is more unpleasant than having to wear soaked pants for hours and having cold legs. For this reason, as part of the EN 343 certification, the rain pants and the seams are tested for water permeability and water vapor transmission resistance. Special attention in the test of rainwear is paid to the zippers. These must be concealed so that the clothing can offer optimum rain protection.

The so-called water column indicates how waterproof a pair of rain pants is. The water column expresses how long the rain pants remain waterproof before water could penetrate.

Different types of rain pants

The following rain pants are distinguished from each other: Overpants and bib pants. Below we explain the differences.

Overpants - with width adjustable pant legs

The overtrousers/overpants are a classic and have a zipper or a Velcro closure on the trouser leg. This way you can adjust the width individually to your leg and do not have to take off your shoes when the garment is used. Furthermore, the waterproof pants can be stored quickly and space-saving in your luggage due to the low weight and pack size.

Bib shorts - also protects the back

The bib shorts provide maximum freedom of movement and protection from wetness and cold at the buttocks or lower back.

Rain pants - waterproof and windproof thanks to Sympatex

In our online store you can also find rain pants made of Sympatex. The most outstanding features of such pants are their protection from wind and water while being environmentally friendly. These rain pants exceed the requirements of EN 343. If a membrane has a water column of 1,300 mm or more, it is considered waterproof. Sympatex has a water column of 45,000 mm, far exceeding the minimum requirements. Equipped with such rain pants, the next rain can come. Furthermore, the waterproof Sympatex also protects against wind. If you are often outside in a strong draft or wind, you have certainly noticed that the wind carries the body heat away from the body. With Sympatex rain pants, the wind has no chance and you cool down less quickly. This effect is supported by the DWR impregnation, because this water- and dirt-repellent layer ensures that the material can not soak up.

The non-porous membrane wicks body fluids away to the outside, but doesn't give wind and water droplets a chance. In other words, Sympatex is breathable. It is also made from recycled PET bottles. So if you buy a pair of Sympatex rain pants, you're also doing something good for the environment.

Buying rain pants - this is what you should pay attention to

When buying your next pair of rain pants, you should make sure that they are a little longer than your normal pants. This way, the pants under the rain pants can not get dirty. Furthermore, you should take a look at the water column. If you are particularly keen on breathability, the pants should also not be made of 100 percent PU, as this material does not support this. An exception applies if the pants also have a Sympatex® membrane, which supports breathability.
