Summary Rex V3 Mono suit
During development nicknamed the T-Rex for its bomb-proof construction, the Rex monosuit is our most durable design yet. We started with a 3-layer shell—with a tough outer layer, waterproof/breathable membrane, and interior lining—and then we reinforced the high-wear areas with Armortex Kevlar®, reinforced the seams, and added double-stitching throughout.
The Rex is designed to hold up to years of sitting on chairlifts, bombing tree lines, and resisting abuse from snowmobiling. Do not hold back.
Protected by the 2.0 Guarantee, the Rex Mono Suit carries a warranty for the lifetime of the product against manufacturer and material defects.
Most monosuits are built with thin, unsupported suspenders.
Like loggers—who spend their days bending, lifting, cutting and hauling—we consider a good pair of suspenders crucial to our performance. Our custom-constructed harness is padded for comfort, have three adjustments points to keep everything in place, and have two thoughtfully-placed radio clips. The mesh panel between the shoulder blades gives you a more ergonomic fit without sacrificing breathability. Our suspenders are as rugged as the terrain we ride in.
The feature you’ll be shocked no-one’s thought of before
In the most technologically advanced age in history, most outerwear still requires us to take our phone out of our pockets. Our silicone smart-pocket is touch-friendly, helping you stay connected and communicate faster, so that you can spend less time pulling your phone out and more time having fun.
Only a product manager who rides would know to add this
Unlike most monosuits, our boot gaiters are constructed from extra tough materials that hold up against wear and tear from running boards. You’ll also find Kevlar® Armortex® blend reinforcements on the cuff, which means your pant hem will look as good on day 100 as it did on day 1.
What this suit has in common with a bulletproof vest
We added Kevlar® Armortex® blend reinforcements to the knees and inside of the legs of this suit. This material is one of those magic modern materials that people talk about without really explaining any further. Bulletproof vests are also made with Kevlar, meaning this is the best protection you can have against sharp running boards or trees. And with an added layer of protection, you won’t think twice about taking a knee to fix or maintain your machine.
Double Stitching with TOBE Spider Silk™
When it comes to complex design, the most effective solutions often present themselves in nature. Our proprietary spider silk™ stitching was inspired by, arguably, the most experienced and specialized weavers on the planet. Our factories submit each stitch to a strenuous “Tensile Test” that measures stress versus strain to ensure maximum strength so that your suit is prepared to stand up to wear, tear, and the harshest conditions.
Because you can never have too many pockets
With 4 external pockets, a goggle-specific pocket and a smart-pocket for your phone, this suit has storage for all your adventure essentials—and then some. Remembering which pocket you put things in is up to you.
A multi-purpose hood built for any adventure
A collar that is too tight feels constrictive. One that’s too loose can be cold. And a centered zipper under your chin can be jabbing and uncomfortable. That’s why we re-developed this zipper on this monosuit 4 times: to design a collar that every rider could customize for the combination of comfort and ventilation.
Why a monosuit is only as good as its ventilation
A snowmobile’s ventilation system is crucial to the machines performance. When the engine overheats, it loses power. Our bodies work similarly—we also need the ability to cool down. So when we designed the ventilation system for this monosuit, we drew inspiration from our toys. Micro stretch panels mimic vent screens to keep rain and snow out. And we moved the vents closer to the chest so that they works optimally with backpacks.
The one tiny detail that makes this suit more waterproof
In addition to testing the fabrics we use for waterproofness, we also test the overall construction of our gear in the “rain chamber.” It’s as if we put each of our monosuits through a carwash, and it allows to optimize the design for maximum water-tightness. One such design to result from this is a modified zipper design that captures any moisture that seeps through and funnels it out a tiny drain so that it never reaches your skin. In testing, this nearly invisible feature extended this suits rain chamber rating by an hour.
