30 KPA of Head

10oz Rale’ Tex waterproof duck performs better than GoreTex. Scotchgard, Kiwi, 303, and Starbrite, could hardly manage a single KPA of head pressure when applied to the same material. Water repellent tech coatings can’t handle sustained contact with water.

Extreme performance

Fabric mildews when stored improperly or left outdoors. Rale’ Tex prevents mold and keeps customers smelling fresh. Sample D is treated canvas duck. Sample F is natural material.
