Below, you will find a guide, making it easier for you to choose the right rainwear according to your specific needs.
When rainwear is listed with a hydrostatic head between 2.000 and 5.000 mm, it is usually PU rainwear or breathable rainwear. At this level, the rainwear is suitable for everyday use by all family members, but, as our Poratex and Poratex Premium membranes ensure that the water is kept out while the sweat is expelled through the lining, Ocean's breathable rainwear is also suitable for professional use.
PU rainwear is suitable for the worker or farmer who wants to stay dry all day, while still emphasizing high comfort. Our rainwear with a hydrostatic head of 5,000 to 20,000 mm suits a need to stay dry in the rain over longer time spans, where ability to move effortlessly, is essential too.
There is a saying, that rainwear can never be 100% waterproof, but if you choose a set of rainwear with a hydrostatic head over 20,000 mm you can feel assured to stay dry in even the most extreme weather and work situations you can imagine. Ocean's PVC rainwear is suitable for industrial use or for everyday life at sea, where the clothes must be able to withstand the sea and the hard working environment to which fishermen are exposed daily. Our waders also have a hydrostatic head of 20,000, ensuring you to stay dry, even after many hours in the water.
