Combat rainwear

Between 2012 and 2016, Foxa Oy supplied the Finnish Defence Forces (FDF) with hundreds of thousands of metres of rainwear fabric. The fabric was developed in cooperation with engineers from the FDF. The fabric's quality requirements were extremely high: it needed to be lightweight, strong, breathable and waterproof in the heaviest rain. The static water resistance of the fabric was defined as 10,000 millimetres. Printed with the M05 camouflage pattern, the rainwear fabric is also IRR protected. During delivery, Foxa's laboratory carried out hundreds of tests to ensure that the material would meet the specifications of the Finnish Defence Forces even after repeated washings.
