Time flies over us, but leaves its shadow and marks behind. The virtual domain is full with reviews, but this one is going to be different as I am going to give you a closer look into the Striker XT combat set I´ve used over the course of two years in different climates & environments and within Project Gecko’s activities.
“Is this stretch material going to keep up over time?“ We get that a lot when people first encounter the Schoeller®-dynamic stretch material, which we use in our P-40 and Striker combat pants. So where is the real breaking point of this amazing stretch material?
The current trend in the outdoor garment industry can be summarized with three words: “light, lighter, lightest”, especially when it comes to weather protection.
So did we manage to develop with our Monsoon SmallPac the lightest rain protection on the market? No, not really, we did something even better and far more important.
One of the reasons why our P-40 Pants are so popular is without doubt the outstanding quality of the polyester/cotton ripstop fabric that is applied as the basic material. Since we have not yet written anything about it, it is time to present its superb characteristics.
We are often asked, why we use only GORE-TEX® materials for our rain gear. Today there is a wide range of other so called waterproof/ breathable materials on the market, which all claim to be as good as GORE-TEX® at a much cheaper price. Find out why we only use special GORE-TEX® materials in our Monsoon rain gear.
There is quite a mix up regarding water proof and water repellent textiles. Most of the times, these terms are used synonymously. But there is quite a technical difference between both, especially when the expectation is that both should mean that the wearer will not get wet in bad and rainy weather.
