Suit up for work

When the weather takes a turn for the worse, our durable outerwear has what you need to stay warm and dry. No matter if you’re working inside or out.

If you’re freezing cold, it’s pretty safe to say you’re not working as efficiently as you could. And wearing layers is the best way to regulate your body temperature when you’re working in unpredictable or inhospitable conditions. That’s why we work with a 3-layer system that helps keeps you warm and comfortable by transporting moisture away from your skin, insulating your body, and holding the elements at bay.

Layered from head to toe

No matter if it’s hot or cold outside, the common denominator to successful layering is the ability to stay dry, even when you’re working up a sweat. And your best tool to combat that is the layer that’s closest to your skin – the base layer.

Base layer

Your first layer is key to staying dry and ventilated and should wick moisture away from your skin. All of our base layers offer seamless comfort and great fit, but with different degrees of ventilation and warmth depending on how active you are at work, and the weather you’re working in.

During the colder months of the year, Merino wool is a natural and durable base layer choice. Besides its ability to absorb around 5% of its own weight in moisture, wool has the extra-added benefit of being naturally odour resistant.

If your job involves regularly moving back and forth between indoor and outdoor sites, or you find yourself constantly switching back and forth between physical and stationary tasks, then you’ll want to pay special attention to your choice of mid-layer.

If your job involves regularly moving back and forth between indoor and outdoor sites, or you find yourself constantly switching back and forth between physical and stationary tasks, then you’ll want to pay special attention to your choice of mid-layer.

Midlayer

Your second layer is for warmth and insulation. Properly designed and sized, it should trap your body heat in a pocket of warm air around you. That means your mid-layer needs to fit well, without being too tight or snug. Ideally, it will be crafted of knitted, quilted, fleece, or microfleece materials that provide an airy yet comfortable enclosure.

However, in those situations that call for extra physical exertion, you’ll still want the ability to ventilate. This calls for the functionality of zippers or more technical fabrics that provide greater breathability in specific areas such as your armpits.

Our midlayers

Finally, hard work gets even harder if you have to work all day outside in cold, wet, or windy weather. That’s when you’ll definitely want to protect yourself from the elements with a third, weatherproof outer layer.

Outer layer

Your third layer needs to provide both wind and water protection, as well as keep you warm. And just as with both base layers and mid-layers, you don’t want to get too warm – so breathability and ventilation are key.

This means that our durable design has to intersect with our technical functionality. Our outer layers are built to be weatherproof enough to keep the elements at bay, and durable enough to withstand the wear and tear of hard day’s work. And then they still deliver the level of breathability and ventilation you can expect and demand.

Wrapping it up

Our workwear is built to help you get the job done, no matter what that job is, or what kind of weather you do it in. Designed and constructed with purpose, all of our workwear can be layered to deliver the performance, durability, and weatherproofing you need to do what needs to be done – through rain, sleet, or snow.
