Utilities Comfortable, Broad Protection in Fast-Drying Rainwear

Utility linemen need foul weather gear that protects them and enables them to work for longer periods without being distracted by discomfort in challenging conditions. Rainwear made with GORE-TEX PYRAD® fabric provides the best combination of broad protection, comfort, and durability for arc-flash rated, foul-weather protection.

Broad Protection That Meets or Exceeds ASTM F1891 Requirements

The fabric’s revolutionary self-extinguishing properties enable rainwear to maintain its physical integrity even after direct exposure to arc-flash or flame, and achieve an arc rating of HRC-3.

Proven Waterproof and Windproof Protection

Foul weather gear with GORE-TEX PYRAD® fabrics have been storm-shower tested and field proven to ensure that linemen stay dry, providing the exceptional waterproof, windproof, breathable performance available only from the inventors of GORE-TEX products.

Integrated Hi-Visibility Protection

Rainwear made with GORE-TEX PYRAD® fabric passes ANSI 107-15 and CSA Z96-15 hi-visibility requirements to improve safety with respect to traffic and other hazards in many lighting conditions. It also reduces bulk by eliminating the need for a traffic vest.

Exceptional Comfort


The highly breathable construction of the GORE-TEX PYRAD® fabric helps decrease sweat buildup, keeping linemen cooler in warm conditions and warmer in cool conditions. This lightweight fabric dries to the touch quickly, reducing the uncomfortable cold, clammy feeling from reusing damp foul weather gear multiple times during a shift.
