FAQ raijn

General questions

raijn is a multifunctional rainwear that transforms from a rain jacket into a coverall in seconds. Optimised for cycling, raijn becomes your flexible companion in everyday mobile life.

The name of our rainwear is derived from the Japanese weather god "Raijin". As one of the oldest deities, he is associated with the weather and its effects. According to Buddhist teachings, he represents the forces of nature and is thus understood as a good spirit. We want to transport this positive energy with raijn.

We are very proud that raijn is realised by a premium outdoor clothing manufacturer based in China. High quality products are created under professional and transparent conditions and manufactured under fair and safe working conditions. In a trusting dialogue and exchange of knowledge with each other, we can constantly improve and grow together.

All materials used are certified by STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®.

raijn is made from a particularly lightweight 3-layer material and offers a water column of 20,000 mm. The breathability of 25,000 g/m²/24h also ensures natural temperature regulation. This means that no moisture can penetrate from the outside, while at the same time perspiration is transported away from the inside to the outside as water vapour via the microporous membrane.

raijn is also equipped with ventilation openings in the back and under the arms. Perforations in the hood provide you with fresh wind and allow you to perceive ambient noise in traffic.

We have placed generous reflective stripes in all important spots. You'll find reflectors on the hood, upper body and back. In addition, the arms, thighs and calves have reflective stripes so that you can always be seen from a distance.

Everything has a price - due to its optimal performance and the amount of material, careful workmanship and fair wages for the seamstresses, the price is appropriate for a durable and carefully designed garment of this quality.

You can find the current list of our partners who offer raijn on our storefinder page.

Use & comfort

raijn is an innovative clothing concept that combines function, fashion and mobility in a practical way. In the blink of an eye, a stylish rain jacket becomes an overall:

  1. Loosen the trouser legs folded inwards in the waist area
  2. Fold the trouser panels outwards and close the zips. 
  3. Now close the press studs on both hems of the trousers.
  4. The adjustable elastics at the waist ensure a perfect fit.

Optional rain overshoes complete the all-weather look to get you to your destination dry.

As this is an outdoor garment that is not cut to figure, we have designed double sizes in the following sizes:

  • S/M Ladies
  • L/XL Ladies
  • S/M men
  • L/XL men

raijn takes into account that rainwear is often worn with other outdoor clothing underneath. In general, raijn fits loosely and offers a comfortable fit. Use the size chart to help you choose the right size.

Of course - when developing the raijn hood, we took into account the most common bicycle helmets in terms of shape and size.

One fits all - take the cover shoes out of the belt pouch and simply slip it on. Start by stepping into the front and pulling the cover over your shoe towards the back.

Care

raijn is made of a very light, soft and supple material. Accordingly, you should not bring raijn into contact with sharp objects when stowing it. You should also bear this in mind with your everyday clothing worn underneath, e.g. dungarees, belts, pockets or buckles can cause pressure points and holes in the material.

raijn is not suitable for carrying a backpack or shoulder bag, as the carrying straps can damage the material. However, a small backpack can be worn under raijn.

When cycling, pay attention to the width of the trouser legs so that they do not come into contact with the bicycle chain. Alternatively, use a trouser band that further reduces the leg width.

If the front zip of your raijn doesn't close straight away, it's worth checking that you have really caught both zips. With 2-way zips it can happen that you forget to hook one of the zips. This also happens to us regularly. If this is not the case and nothing else is stuck, please contact our customer service.

Before washing, close all zips and press studs and turn the garment inside out. Wash raijn together with similar garments that are not heavily soiled. It's best to wash raijn in the overall version.

raijn can be washed at 30°C on a gentle cycle with mild detergent. Partial soiling can be removed by wiping the surface. Please do not rub heavily! Product care has a strong influence on the life of your garment and therefore on its sustainability. Regular airing and wiping of the fabric surface also maintains the breathability and finish of your raijn for a long time.

raijn please do not dry clean under any circumstances! We recommend a professional textile care and washing service especially for outdoor & functional clothing. For more information, please contact our Customer Care Team: [email protected]

Only wash raijn when it is really dirty. If raijn gets wet in the rain, dry it well. You can reactivate the waterproofing with every wash.

Normally, raijn does not need to be ironed. If necessary (to iron out wrinkles or reactivate the impregnation from time to time), please iron only on level 1 and without steam. Place a cloth or tea towel between the iron and the garment to avoid pressure marks.

raijn is treated with a durable water repellency (DWR) impregnation. This impregnation is maintained by ironing or machine drying. If the water no longer beads up on the material and washing and drying no longer have any effect, we recommend professional reimpregnation. We do not recommend impregnation on your own. For more information, please contact our customer service at [email protected].

After a rain shower, raijn should be spread out briefly or aired over a chair or coat hanger. Always put raijn back in the bag after use when it is really dry. When dry, simply put raijn back into the integrated belt pouch.
