Improved Rain Suit

The Improved Rain Suit (IRS) forms a waterproof outer shell worn over other clothing and gear. It is lightweight; however, IRS functions strictly as a rain barrier, offering little protection from the cold.

Description

The IRS parka has a roll-up hood with a visor and drawstring closure. There are armpit zippers for ventilation, a heavy full-length zipper in front covered by a storm flap that closes with snaps. The pockets are pass-through to inner garments. The elbows are reinforced and Velcro closures at the cuffs make a tight fit. The parka has inside buttons for attaching the CW coat insulating liner.

The IRS trousers have a draw-string at the waist, a center zipper, pass-through pockets, Velcro closures at the ankles, and long leg zippers for easy on-off. The seat and knees are reinforced.

Material

The IRS is made of SympaTex, a lightweight breathable, waterproof material made by SympaTex Technologies GmbH. SympaTex is a nylon material that is pliable and moisture-vapor-semi-permeable. It resist external water while allowing perspiration or other moisture to transfer from inside to outside, thereby keeping the wearer dry and comfortable.
