Airalite; Packable, Ultralight Protection from the Elements

One of the Most Advanced Rain Shell Available, 100 USA-made

FORLOH, the 100 percent made-in-America technical outdoor brand, introduces their most advanced lightweight waterproof jacket and pants. Designed with first-to-market Airadigm™ Pulse Plasma Technology and equipped with RECCO®, the Airalite collection is designed for backcountry packability (112gm/m2 fabric), with the ability to quickly layer up and protect against the rigors of harsh weather and terrain.

The Airadigm™ Pulse Plasma technology applies the DWR treatment in trace amounts using an electrical charge to bond the fabric’s fibers. In turn, the pores of the fabric remain open and result in a substantially more breathable and air-permeable garment. Besides being a more durable and longer-lasting treatment, The Airadigm Pulse Plasma technology results in a soft, supple, quiet fabric compared to most waterproof fabrics.

The perfect balance of durability and protection, 30-denier military grade rip-stop nylon construction for overall strength paired with ePTFE membrane and a lightweight 20-denier tricot backer to block out the elements and keep the user dry and comfortable. The Airalite is equipped with RECCO® technology for search and rescue detecting as well as boasts an impressive waterproof rating while maintaining performance-ready breathability and a windproof rating to handle extreme winds. 

The jacket incorporates FORLOH’s 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.

The Pant features an inseam ventilation system with a mesh interior and articulated Knees for all-day comfort.

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.
