Clothing, boots, gloves - A smart jacket against the rain -

The young company Xtream Wearther founded by Fabrice Medlege will be offering from December 6 a clever line of jackets incorporating retractable leggings against the rain. Simple, but you had to think about it !

At first glance, it’s a motorcycle jacket like any other: neither heavier nor lighter, neither prettier nor uglier, except perhaps this logo a little too visible on the prototype that we tested..

But the main innovation of Xtream Wearther jackets lies in the patented device Lex System, which offers the presence of protective leggings against the rain: folded inside the jacket, they unfold on the front of the legs and are fixed with the help of scratches to protect against the rain. Simple, but original and a priori effective !

However, they fold up inside the jacket much more easily than one might imagine. For weather reasons beyond our control, it was not possible for us to test the product in "long-term" rain conditions. But after having suffered a few cold showers in the Paris region, the system seems just as effective as a classic rain suit..
