Utilities Comfortable, Broad Protection in Fast-Drying Rainwear

How It Works

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 Exceeds ASTM F1891 Requirements

The fabric’s revolutionary self-extinguishing properties enable raingear to maintain its physical integrity even after direct exposure to flame.

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.

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.

Integrated Hi-Visibility Protection

Rainwear made with GORE-TEX® PYRAD® fabric passes ANSI 107 hi-visibility requirements to improve safety during exposure to traffic hazards. It also reduces bulk because it eliminates the need for an additional vest.
