Why Samurai Gore® Pyrad®?

Why Samurai Gore® Pyrad® ?


WEATHER conditions:

All benefits of the renowned GORE-TEX membrane in terms of 100% lasting waterproofness (>15.000 Pa), wind stopping and superior breathability (RET of 8,3). The outer shell parka can be combined with FR fleece insulation for higher cold resistance results.

FLAME burst/ARC flash :

GORE® PYRAD® offers a high level of protection from arc flash and flash fire threats by balancing flame resistance, thermal insulation, and thermal stability, resulting in an astonishing 49,1 ATPV value. The unique technology self-extinguishes flames so that the fabric does not continue to burn longer than 5 seconds.

Stable char technology makes the parka to cover itself in a carbon shell when exposed to fire.


-Hot water/hot liquid splash and steam resistant
-Petroleum and oil based mud resistant


The incredible lightness of the fabric at about 1225 grams for our average sized parka (45% lighter than common parkas in the market-place), puts an absolute minimal burden on the crew’s back, having to deal already with several other PPE and tools…

The minimal absorption of moisture in rainy conditions makes the parka up to 50% lighter in wet conditions.
Waterproof (>15.000 Pa), windproof and breathable (8,3 RET)
Breathable for excellent transpiration moisture and heat-stress management.

Burn trauma, by open flame (burst) or arc flash, more than any other physical trauma, has a significant impact on the survivor’s emotional, and mental  well being.  Minimizing 2nd and 3rd degree burns are paramount.

Severe weather conditions in terms of wind, cold water or a combination of both, are major distractors in terms of focus (cold stress), awareness and performance on the job and can lead to unsafe situations leading to non-compliance to the obligation to wear multirisk clothing all together and seek alternative clothing by individual initiative.


Easy clean & care with reduced risk of residual contaminants at 60 degrees in a general domestic washing machine. Up to 40 washing cycles (Shannon fabric). Dry out period lower than 180 minutes.

(EBRO fabric up to 10 washing cycles)
