Measurements

The measurements shown are taken from the body. Room for movement is calculated by the manufacturer into the garment.

Mens' Short Length Trousers:
inside leg 29"(74cm)

Mens' Regular Length Trousers:
inside leg 31"(78cm)

Mens' Tall Length Trousers:
inside leg 33"(84cm)

Extra Tall garments are available:
inside leg 36"(92cm)

Tips on Measuring Chest:
Place tape measure close up under the arms and measure around the fullest part of the chest.

Waist: Measure around the natural waistline.

Inside Leg: Measure from the crotch to where the trouser is normally worn on the shoe.


Standards

EN342 Garments for Protection Against Cold
The standard specifies test methods and demands on performance of clothing which is intended to protect against cold.

FEATURES X: Insulation, level 1,2 or 3
Y: Air permeability, level 1,2 or 3
Z: Water vapour resistance, level 1,2 or 3


EN343 Explained

Protective clothing is certified to the EN343 standard to withstand moisture ingress. It also accounts for the breathability of the garment. The label inside your garment will inform you of its protection class under the EN343 standard. On the label, EN343 will be followed by two numbers. For example, EN343 Class 3:3. The first digit denotes its water penetration resistance, whilst the second digit denotes its breathability.

EN343 RESISTANCE TO WATER PENETRATION is subdivided into three sub-levels:

Class 3 affords the highest level of foul weather protection

Class 2 provides an intermediate foul weather protection

Class 1 provides the lowest level of foul weather protection

EN343 BREATHABILITY is subdivided into three sub-levels

Class 3 affords the highest level of breathability

Class 2 provides an intermediate level of breathability

Class 1 is not classified as breathable under the standard.

Test Methods and requirements.

There has to be applied the ergonomic requirements from the EN 340 norm. the application of the individual tests about each component is indicated in the following table:

Water penetration resistance

EN 20811

Tested with an increase of the hydrostatic pressure of 980 ± 50 Pa/min, the following samples will be done:

-5 samples for testing the material before the pre-treatment

-5 samples for testing the seams before the pre-treatment

-5 samples for testing the material after the pre-treatment by dry cleaning/washing

-4 samples for testing after the pre-treatment by abrasion

-4 samples for testing after the pre-treatment by repeated flexural bending

-4 samples for testing after the pre-treatment by petroleum and oil

If one sample obtains different values in the different tests, it has to be indicated the lowest class. The classification will be realized according the following table:

Water penetration resistance Wp

Class

1

3

Sample to test

- material before the pre-treatment

Wp ≥ 8000 Pa

No need to test*

No need to test*

- material after each pre-treatment

No need to test

Wp ≥ 8000 Pa

Wp ≥ 13000 Pa

- seams before the pre-treatment

Wp ≥ 8000 Pa

Wp ≥ 8000 Pa

Wp ≥ 13000 Pa

* No need to test because the worst situation for classes 2 and 3 is after the pre-treatment.

NOTE: for each class there has to fulfil some requirements.

Water vapour resistance

EN 31092

When testing with that norm, the vapour water resistance from any layer of the garment has to match the following values:

Vapour water resistance R et

Class

1*

R et > 40

20 < R et ≤ 40

R et ≤ 20

*WARNING: Class 1 has a limited use.

ISO 1421

EN 13934-1

The material from the external layer has to support a tensile strength of, as minimum, 450N in both directions.

ISO 4674

The material from the external layer have to support a tear resistance of, as minimum, 25 N in both directions.

EN 340

The dimensional variation of any used material can't exceed from ± 3% after 5 washing cycles or dry cleaning.

PLEASE NOTE EN343 certified garments will protect the wearer against these conditions provided that:

  • The garment is closed before use to ensure maximum protective performance
  • The fabric is clean (if it is dirty its performance may be impaired)
  • The protective clothing is stored in a dry and well ventilated space
  • The garment is cared for according to the instructions inside the garment for maximum protective performance.
