THE NEW UF PRO® MONSOON RAIN SHIRT

The ultimate weather protection jacket underneath your body armour or chest rig.

UF PRO introduced today a new addition to their Monsoon waterproof range- the new Monsoon Rain Shirt.

The lightweight, low bulk Monsoon Rain Shirt is specifically designed to be worn underneath the body armour, chest rig or other additional gear.

It’s made out of a special laminate mix, which makes the jacket thin, breathable and lightweight where it is covered with gear and very robust and extra durable wherever it is not.

Exposed areas, like shoulders, lower back and sleeves are made out of a robust and durable 3-layer laminate. The rest of the jacket is made out of an extremely lightweight and low bulk 2.5-layer laminate. Both laminates are based on a super breathable and reliably waterproof high-tech membrane.

In order to avoid the formation of so called “thermal bridges“ between your skin and the outside air, the Monsoon Rain Shirt has built-in air/pac inserts in the shoulder area. These 8mm thick mesh inserts give you the necessary insulation between your skin and the outside temperature and thus prevent cold air to transfer from the outside to your skin.

Due to their 3D foamy structure, the air/pac inserts also distribute the weight of plate carriers or backpacks.

For an unhindered vision and an uncompromised hearing, the jacket has a special integrated hood system called the Hood/Harness. The harness comfortably connects your head to the hood and thus flawlessly follows your head movements, allowing you unhindered vision in extreme weather conditions.

And since there is no strapping needed, the space between your head and the laminate is kept, which keeps the air circulation and doesn’t limit your hearing.

The Monsoon Rain Shirt is available in Brown Grey and in PenCott GreenZone.
