Our starting point to product sustainability is found in safety and durability, by developing products that are safe to wear for people and, in the long run, have less impact on the planet. Moving forward, we believe in circularity combined with product safety and durability.
Rains develops and manufactures modern and comfortable rainwear. Signature to this promise, is a lightweight yet strong polyester fabric backed with a flexible, fluorinate-free polyurethane coating. The fabric is bonded together through ultrasonic welding, ensuring quality, waterproof products. Additionally, all fittings, zippers and trimmings are designed and produced in materials optimized for wet conditions.

Weather-resistant hardware: Stainless steel and durable rubber trimmings
The performative, fluorinate-free polyurethane coating ensures water repellency and a long lifetime. The rubber material has a high durability, and with its build-in insulative quality it also has windproof abilities. Rains has specifically chosen the PU-coating as it is significantly more environment-friendly than its hormone disrupting alternatives: PVC and DWR-PFC.
A light woven polyester fiber is used as the backside of the water-repellent PU-coating. Together, the polyester and the PU represents a strong construction that both keeps the fit and keeps you dry. The environmental benefit of polyester is that the synthetic material is completely recyclable, and by 2021, our goal is to minimize our use of virgin polyester. To do this, we introduce a recycled polyester microfiber made of plastic bottles from a closed loop system.
Nylon is a strong synthetic material and acts as the lining in our high-performance outerwear line, Thermal. Due to the fabrics yarn size and special weave, the nylon lining becomes lightweight and particularly more breathable. Like polyester, nylon is highly recyclable, and by 2021, our goal is to line all our Thermal outerwear with regenerated nylon made of recycled sources, turning waste into a valuable resource.
In line with our animal friendly product pledge, an innovative and high-tech featherless material is replacing natural down in our Thermal puffer jackets. The featherless and loose-fill insulation designed by scientists’ mimics down when dry and is warmer than down when wet. With our ban of natural down and feather, we are promoting animal welfare and a cruelty-free industry.
All metals used on Rains hardware are made of stainless steel. Stainless-steel is ultimately the most environmentally friendly metal as it is corrosion-resistant, highly durable, have high-recycled content and recapture rates, as well as the metal has the benefit of being nickel-free.
All individual product specifications can be found in the product descriptions and details section of the product pages.
It is of the utmost importance to us that we cut out waste wherever possible. One big opportunity for Rains was in the reassessment of our shopping bag production. With a goal to close the loop, we work with a manufacturer who gathers scraps from leftover industrial plastic production and recycles it into new products, such as our shopping bags. What would otherwise be discarded now finds a new life in the very shopping bag our products are carried in. Produced with durability in mind, we encourage extending the use of our recycled plastic shopping bags beyond the transportation of our products from stores to home.
