Can you wear the Apex in the rain or wet conditions?

Not Recommended for Use in Wet Conditions

Wearing the Apex in the rain, or other wet conditions, is not recommended.

The Apex was not designed to be used in wet conditions. The soft textiles that make up most of the exosuit can get wet with no problems, but the switch, cable, and clutch mechanisms cannot on the current version of the Apex.

If it must be used in wet conditions, we recommend wearing a rain jacket over the upper body portion of the Apex exosuit to cover the mechanical components on the back and shoulder areas to prevent them from getting wet.

Wearing the Apex in wet conditions without rain gear can result in damage or accelerated wear and tear that are not covered under the product warranty.
