“Using the same fabric technology used in our stocking-foot waders, Filson has created a new breathable rain suit,” explains Amy Terai, Marketing Manager for Filson. This suit features pants that will fit over your base layer or your regular pants. The bottoms have 13” zippers on the legs to make the pants easy to put on and take off. The pants are also re-enforced at the cuffs which is traditionally the highest wear area on the pants. The suit has a matching jacket that is fully seam-sealed. The suit is lightweight and breathable and offers excellent protection from rain. The rain suit is a great general purpose suit geared toward fishing, or geared toward any outdoor activity.
The rain suit will also be available in fall/winter of 2013. The top will retail for $435 and the pants will be $400.
