The industry’s only 100-percent Made-in-America brand reinvents expectations around waterproof, breathable shell performance
WHITEFISH, Mont. (July 14, 2021) — Once again driving the industry forward with innovation, FORLOH, the 100% Made-in-America technical outdoor brand, expands into new categories with an extension to their award-winning AllClima Collection with the new AllClima Airalite 3L Jacket and Pants, available now. Designed with the most advanced waterproof, breathable technology to date, anglers, hunters and adventurers alike will be pleased to learn that FORLOH has managed to shave the weight without compromising an ounce when it comes to protection from the elements, breathability and incredible durability to last season after season.
The AllClima Airalite 3-Layer Rain collection is 50% lighter (112gm/m2) than the current FORLOH AllClima 3L Rain Collection, making it an ultra-lightweight option that’s in a durability class of its own thanks to 30-denier military grade rip-stop nylon construction paired with an ePTFE membrane and a lightweight 20 denier tricot backer. The jacket also incorporates the first-of-its-kind horizontal zippered back vent which was designed to allow excess heat to escape while still offering protection, whether standing in a torrential downpour or simply getting sprayed while fishing in rough waters.
While light on weight, the AllClima Airalite 3-Layer Jacket and Pants are loaded with technology. The first hunt brand to do so, FORLOH increases the margin of safety for consumers with the inclusion of RECCO®, a technology that makes the user easier to locate in the event of an emergency.
In addition FORLOH achieves standout breathability with their first-to-market Airadigm™ Pulse Plasma technology, pairing the industry’s highest level of waterproofness (up to 35k +/mm) with exceptionally high breathability ratings (up to 35k MTVR) — traits typically at odds with one another in more traditional waterproof, breathable fabrics.
Rather than coating the outside of the fabric with a water-and-oil-repellent DWR treatment, the most common and current method, Airadigm Pulsa Plasma technology actually applies the DWR treatment in trace amounts employing a process that takes place in a vacuum chamber wherein an electrical charge forces the treatment bond to the fabric’s fibers. This technique is done on the molecular level and treats every structure of the fabric’s fibers resulting in less DWR treatment needed. In turn the pores of the fabric remain open and results in a substantially more breathable and air-permeable garment. Besides being a more durable and longer-lasting treatment, FORLOH’s Airadigm Pulse Plasma technology results in a soft, supple, quiet fabric compared to most waterproof fabrics. This makes FORLOH the ONLY brand to have an “active” system that breathes from the moment you put it on, unlike others that use a passive system that requires you to sweat first.
FORLOH AllClima Airalite Rain Jackets and Pants are currently available for men in six colorways: Deep Cover, Exposed, Sea Camo, Magnet, FORLOH Green, and Black. The latest collection from the American-made brand can be found at www.FORLOH.com as well as FORLOH’s flagship retail store in Whitefish, Montana.
