Choosing The Right Winter Jacket For Your Work
Ideas and advice from Rugged & Tough ...
Choosing the right winter jacket for your work is really important. After all, you need to think about what you'll be doing in it during the day and whether the design, construction and materials will help or hinder you in completing your tasks ...
At Rugged & Tough, we'll always help you find the right winter jacket for your work!
Yes, of course, you'll need it to keep you warm during a typical British winter, but there are a number of other factors you need to consider to ensure you choose the right winter jacket.
"What are you going to be doing in it?"
Whenever a customer comes into our store or calls us up for advice that is the first question one of the Rugged & Tough team asks them. And it is the most important question of all.
Different jobs have different requirements:
A bricklayer will be twisting around all day picking up bricks and cementing them in place. A shorter jacket would be more sensible here.
A carpenter is going to be indoors most of the time so may have no need for wind or waterproofing; something more lightweight would be ok.
A crane driver will be sitting in his cab all day so short with breathable materials is ideal.
A roofer will be in their safety harness most of the day so warm, thin, flexible and waterproof is what's needed.
A site foreman does a lot of walking around the work site, but isn't performing strenuous tasks so a longer, more waterproof hi-viz jacket would be best.
A truck driver may be in and out of their cab all day making deliveries so needs more flexibility when driving and warmth only for short periods.
There's a lot to think about, isn't there?
The right winter jacket is a good, solid investment and it's something you're going to use for years and years, so the highest quality construction is necessary.
And that needs to be backed up with the knowledge that if something goes wrong with it because of a manufacturing defect, then the supplier will get you sorted as soon as they can.
"Rugged & Tough makes this guarantee to all our workwear customers!"
We supply some great workwear brands and can highly recommend the likes of Carhartt to you. This is proper workwear - direct from the USA - and is the choice of outdoor tradesmen throughout North America.
Take, for example, the Carhartt Detroit winter jacket. Short, thin, but still warm and keeps the weather off. Ideal for those in and out of cabs all day and can easily be branded with your company logo.
It is designed for active work where optimum movement is needed, but not so heavy it's too hot.
All of the winter jackets we offer both online and instore are high quality brands, designed for use year after year, backed up by a wealth of knowledge from us.
