Portwest S556 PWR Waterproof Trousers

Although waterproof jackets are much more common, for many professions waterproof trousers are also important. The Portwest S556 PWR Waterproof Trousers feature a water-resistant fabric finish to prevent water penetration, and the zipped side leg means its incredibly easy to slip them on and off even while wearing boots. 

What Can the Portwest PWR Waterproof Trousers Do to Help Me?

The trousers have several helpful features:

  • Waterproof: Texpel fabric finish is extremely water resistant, and taped seams offer additional protection
  • Breathable: Trousers certified as the maximum level of breathability under EN 343
  • Practical: Zipped side leg allows for easy access on and off while wearing boots, and double-layer reinforced knee ensures durability
  • Comfortable: Adjustable elasticated waist band and articulated legs for a very comfortable fit

Who Are the Portwest Trousers For?

The Portwest Trousers are ideal for men working in environments where your lower half may get wet, for instance on harbours or by the quayside. The trousers feature two secure zipped pockets for storing any tools you need.

What Is the EN 343 Standard?

The EN 343 standard outlines the garment's level of protection against wet weather. The garments are rated on their response to precipitation, fog and humidity, and then on their breathability under those conditions. The trousers have a 3:3 rating, meaning that they have the highest level of rain protection and the highest level of breathability. 

Level Water Resistance Breathability
Level 1 Minimum level of rain protection Not classified as breathable under EN 343
Level 2 Intermediate level of rain protection Intermediate level of breathability
Level 3 Highest level of rain protection Highest level of breathability

What Is the Portwest PWR Collection?

The trousers are part of the Portwest PWR collection, which is constructed from Portwest Extreme, a premium high-performance waterproof and breathable fabric. Using state-of-the-art technology, the base fabric has been engineered to provide a technical barrier against the elements. The trousers offer maximum waterproof, breathable and windproof protection, which far exceeds the current highest requirements. 

What Is the Texpel Splash Water-Repellent Finish?

The trousers feature a Texpel Splash water-repellent finish. This means that water beads away from the fabric surface, while allowing for maximum breathability. Texpel also repels dirt, prevents stains, and enhances the removal of any stains that do occur. 

What Is Portwest's Select Rainwear Range?

The Portwest Rainwear collection allows for optimum outdoor performance. These garments are made from highly waterproof and breathable fabrics, ideal for protecting against harsh weather conditions. If you would like to know more about the brand try our blog on Portwest.
