There are lots of questions people ask in relation to Flexothane's performance and longevity. By and large the following are those most repeatedly requested for clarification. We hope these points will answer the main queries you may have in relation to the amazing benefits of Flexothane.
How long will my Flexothane garment last?
Good question! Lets put it this way, Dairy farmers, our toughest test market, are on average getting up to two years use from a single pair of Overtrousers or Bib Overtrousers and at least twice that out of their coats. Some Pastoral farmers are getting up to four years from their Bibs and Overtrousers and longer than that from their jackets. This is a dramatic improvement in longevity over more traditional fabrics such as PVC. Those customers who get the greatest life expectancy out of their garments follow the two golden rules of Flexothane preservation:
a) Always hang up your Flexothane garment after use.
b) Regular machine washing of the garments will greatly enhance their life expectancy.
These two simple acts could double the life of your garment.
Flexothane is so lightweight, does it tear easily?
The answer to this is no! Even though Flexothane is remarkably lightweight it's actually incredibly tear resistant. While Flexothane is not puncture proof it is, unlike most other fabrics, very difficult to tear! Consider the demonstration on the Flexothane Material page or, better still, conduct your own experiment with the swatch of fabric provided with your catalogue.
I always end up wetter on the inside than the outside in cheap plastic coats!! Does Flexothane breath?
Yes, Flexothane is classed as breathable! This makes Flexothane vastly more comfortable in warmer conditions than garments made from traditional fabrics like PVC or oil skin. So now you can go out in the rain and not feel as though you are working in a Swedish sauna!
With all other brands my overtrousers have always split in the crutch! Are Oringi overtrousers any different?
