Introducing AW18 Rains Thermal

Rains presents a series of waterproof outerwear designed to endure colder climates. By applying the latest innovations in rainwear fabrics and construction, every jacket in the Thermal collection is waterproof, insulated and breathable. Each style has been designed as an ode to classic silhouettes and executed within the design DNA that is recognisably Rains.

Technology

WATERPROOF

4000 mm/cm2 water column pressure

Signature to Rains is a thin, lightweight polyurethane (PU) coating, consisting of a multi-layer formula that results in waterproof protection. While still allowing breathability, the pores of the PU surface are shaped in a way that allows air out, but stops moisture from coming in.

WINDPROOF

0.02 cmm air permeability

The lightweight polyurethane (PU) coating on Rains Thermal consists of an innovative multi-layer formula resulting in windproof protection. While still allowing breathability, the pores of the PU surface are shaped in a way that allows air to go out out, but not in.

BREATHABLE

4000 g/m2 water vapour transmission

Developed specifically for Thermal, Rains took to the laboratory to invent a highly breathable PU that could coat the entirety of the collection. The result is a waterproof PU with the ability to breathe, allowing the body to naturally regulate its temperature when worn.

INSULATED

3M™ Thinsulate™ Featherless Insulation

The entirety of the collection utilises 3M™ Thinsulate™ Featherless Insulation, allowing the Thermal collection to provide extreme warmth in extreme conditions, as well as remain highly compressible for tight packing. The fill is as lightweight as natural down, highly breathable and hypoallergenic.


DOUBLE-WELDED SEAMS

High-frequency ultrasonic technology

In order to ensure a completely waterproof jacket, ultrasonic welding machines fuse PU material together to tightly close seams. We take it one step further and double-weld the seams to ensure extra hold and zero moisture seepage.

WEATHER-RESISTANT HARDWARE

Stainless steel and durable rubber trimmings

Rains Thermal is developed for heavy-duty weather. From the oversized zipper down to the stainless steel trimmings on the hood drawstrings, the most durable details have been carefully considered in finishing the Thermal collection.
