The new Gage Storm Runner foul-weather gear from Grundens is perfect for those tropical days when you just can’t predict what the weather will do. This gear offers lightweight, packable protection against conditions ranging from sea spray or light summer showers to full-on downpours.
The Gage Storm Runner jacket and pants weigh less than 26 ounces combined (including waist belt), but this is some durable gear. The 2.0 layer nylon ripstop shell has a waterproof/breathable barrier and Durable Water Resistant finish to keep you dry and comfortable in any conditions. Because it’s lightweight and breathable, Storm Runner also keeps you comfortable during balmy weather or strenuous activities such as working the deck of a boat, kayaking or any other outdoor pursuit. The generous cut of the pants and jacket allow for full range of motion, making it easy to move about the boat when wearing the gear.
Lightweight Gage Storm Runner Rain Gear
The Storm Runner jacket and pants stuff inside their own pockets for easy transport and storage. They fit in a day bag or even a tackle box.
“We’ve worked hard to develop truly lightweight rain gear that delivers the waterproof protection and durability customers expect from Grundens,” said Mike Jackson, President of Grundens USA. “Storm Runner is so light, you can forget you have it on. And it’s designed to easily carry with you everywhere you go — so you’ll never have to run from anything Mother Nature throws your way.”
Storm Runner jackets feature an adjustable, full-sized hood, center front zipper with double exterior storm flaps to keep wind-driven water out, adjustable cuffs with both elastic and Velcro closures, an adjustable shockcord hem and two large exterior pockets.
The pants feature an elastic waistband, zipper fly and a 1½-inch wide elastic belt, which comes in handy as a spot to place your pliers. There are also leg zippers for easy wear over boots, Velcro adjustable cuffs to keep water out and a large exterior hip pocket for personal items.
Storm Runner pants are available in black, while jackets come in black, blue, green and orange. They’re also very affordable. The jacket retails for $66 and the pants go for $64. For more info, visit www.Grundens.com.
