Our Company

We know cycling. And living in Minnesota, we know cycling in some of the most extreme weather conditions you can find. Snow, sleet, rain or shine, we’ve built our O2Rainwear™ to handle it all.

Developed by Rain Shield, Inc., O2 Rainwear is a national biking apparel line offering affordable protection from the elements for anyone who rides — from serious cyclists to casual rec riders. We’re based in Minneapolis, one of the most active cycling communities in the country. Our own passion for cycling means we get it: we understand why you’re out there, rain or shine, and we know what you need from your gear to keep you going back for more. Since 1997, we’ve been creating O2 Rainwear products to help you make the most of your ride.

About Our Technology

3Flow™ Performance Fabrics

Our Calhoun, Nokomis and Primary Series gear are designed using our exclusive 3Flow Performance Fabrics. Engineered to keep you dry, this ultra-breathable fabric features millions of microscopic pores that seal out water, snow and wind while letting your skin breathe so you won’t be drenched in sweat. It’s also thin and lightweight to keep you comfortable in all weather conditions.

Microporous Film

O2 Rainwear Original Series gear uses an exclusive Microporous Film laminated to a non-woven layer. This very inexpensive and high-performing textile features the best combination of water holdout and breathability. It’s thin and ultra lightweight, making the Original Series incredibly packable and easy to stash for unexpected changes in weather. Better yet, it’s affordable. You’ll get outstanding comfort and protection at the same price as the lesser, non-breathable rubber, plastic and PVC-coated garments.

Personalize It

Looking to add a little flair to your gear? We can do that. We can decorate your O2 Rainwear with waterproof embroidery and special packaging for ASI and promotional applications. Contact us to learn more.
