Highly waterproof and breathable pants built to withstand extreme rainfall.
- Material engineered with self-drying nanotechnology
- Built with an intelligent waterproof membrane
- Fitted with a watertight pocket
The Waterfallproof Pants are designed to combat the megastorms of the future, where crazily intense rainfall becomes the norm. Highly waterproof, windproof and breathable, they’re constructed with an advanced 3 layer Swiss material with an intelligent membrane that opens and closes in the heat, and self-drying nanotechnology that mimics a lotus leaf. Fully seam sealed, we’ve fitted them with a watertight pocket that can withstand high pressure torrents of 100 litres a minute.
The pants come with a watertight pocket that can withstand high pressure torrents of 100 litres a minute.
The outside of the Waterfallproof Pants mimic one of nature’s most brilliant pieces of engineering, so water simply rolls off them.
Highly waterproof and highly breathable at the same time
The issue with creating something crazily waterproof is breathability. The more water can’t come through one way, the harder it is to let it come out the other. A rubber wetsuit for instance would never let any rain through, but if you tried to go for a run in one you might pass out as it won’t let heat or sweat escape efficiently. So the middle layer of the pants uses Schoeller’s c_change® membrane. Instead of remaining static, the membrane can open and close to respond to different weather conditions as they happen, while remaining permanently waterproof and windproof.
How the membrane works in the heat and wet
As the air temperature rises, the membrane opens up so that excess sweat and heat can escape through the pants. But while the membrane’s polymer structure opens up to become extremely permeable to water vapour leaving the body, it remains completely waterproof on the outside. It means that even if you held the pants under a downpour in extreme heat, they would only ever let the water through one way, while still letting heat pass through them.
Building the material alone requires a total of 28 separate construction processes.
