COLD INSULATED RATING ICONS
MILD WEATHER / AGGRESSIVE RIDING GEAR: A value of 1 has no thermal insulation and is suitable for mild climates or situations where intensive perspiration occurs.
COLD WEATHER / LOW ACTIVITY RIDING GEAR: Values between 7-10 have extremely high thermal properties and are able to withstand extreme temperatures, well below -40°C/F and will keep you warm during sedentary outdoor activities.
SHELL & FIXED LINING COMBINED INSULATION RATING: If the item is a 2-in-1 or 3-in-1 (indicating it has a removable liner), both the “SHELL” and “COMBO” (combined) value of the shell and liner will be displayed.
F.A.S.T. insulation is made from an expanded, low-density polyethylene foam membrane that offers buoyancy assistance for up to two hours. The floatation membrane construction has excellent insulation properties, even when wet, which is integral should you be submerged. The F.A.S.T. membrane is also moisture resistant and lightweight, which allows the user to retain excellent warmth and mobility.
IMPORTANT – FXR jacket and pants with F.A.S.T. must be worn together as a suit to achieve buoyancy properties. Additionally, F.A.S.T. items will be rendered ineffective in adverse conditions such as strong water currents. F.A.S.T. equipped products provide exceptional mobility, warmth, style, and attention to detail while offering buoyancy properties, but are NOT COAST GUARD APPROVED.
HydrX™ is FXR’s exclusive Single Layer Moisture Shield that is applied to the outer shell of FXR products. HydrX™ is applied as a single layer laminate in mid-level FXR garments and a single layer coating in entry level FXR garments.
FXR’s Thermal Flex™ insulation is a powerful blend of polyester fiber fill that provides exceptional warmth and flexibility at any temperature. Unlike other fiber fills, which often become stiff in cold weather, our Thermal Flex™ insulation provides superior comfort, mobility and warmth season after season, wet or dry. Our trade-marked insulation is used in both fixed and removable liner systems, in both jackets and pants meaning all of our products come with unbeatable heat retention abilities.
The new Dry Vent™ System is a high performance venting system that maximizes ventilation in radial side body vents and the chest of FXR jackets and the inner and outer thigh of FXR pants. Seam sealed venting mesh eliminates snow ingestion in all snow conditions, including bottomless powder or wet snow. It uses the cold air entering the vents to exhaust the warm air built within the inner microclimate between your jacket/ pant and base layers. FXR’s trademarked Dry Vent™ System is 99% more effective at controlling your core temperature and keeping you dry than any waterproof/ breathable system on the planet.
