  • Ready for Spring? Be Prepared with High Visibility Rainwear

    high visibility rainwearMarch, April and May are generally the wettest months for most areas of the US and sometimes it just doesn't seem to let up. While we need the rain to help nature transition from winter into summer, it can cause quite a mess for anyone who works outdoors. Job sites become muddy, messy and flooded. Materials are slick and slippery, creating an increased risk of hazards. Wet clothes and a wet body during a long, cold workday is not only uncomfortable but also a perfect recipe for getting sick. If you're working in these conditions, you need the proper apparel.
     
    The top brands in the safety industry have been working relentlessly in recent years to create the next generation of rainwear, with some impressive results. It has evolved from the most basic concept of keeping you dry into a respectable market with plenty of trade-specific options to choose from. The days of those heavy vinyl trench coats are a thing of the past. The demand for style, comfort, and functionality have taken equal importance to dryness and manufacturers have taken notice. This is especially true within the high visibility ANSI-rated market where ANSI Class 2 and 3 rainwear is now available in many colors and styles.
     
    Ripstop 300-denier fabrics, double-taped and heat-sealed seams, elastic wrist & ankle cuffs, drawstring waists, waterproof pockets, waterproof zippers and one-way vents for reducing undergarment heat build-up are some of the most important features offered with today's advanced high-visibility rainwear. Thinner, lighter, stronger and more flexible waterproof fabrics that allow for better movement are now commonplace, making it safer and easier than ever to perform tasks. In addition, today's rainwear isn't as bulky as it was just years ago. This helps reduce the risks of injuries from snags on equipment or machinery, making everyday a safer one.
     
    When you're heading out for work this spring - or anytime when it's wet and rainy - remember to bring your rainwear. The ability to remain comfortable, safe, dry, and highly mobile is now just a click away.

Remember, it takes the proper tools to get the job done and the proper apparel is a critical tool for the workday.
     

  • A New Age in High Visibility Rain Wear

    high visibility rain gearIn less than one month, the cold weather will start to subside and the drab and rainy season will be rapidly approaching. For most of you who work outdoors, those are the dreaded days of stomping through the mud, handling wet tools and materials, and just a general sense of discomfort during the wet weather. Everything seems to take longer in the rain or on a wet job site but still the job has to be done.
     
    Fortunately, you don't have to be as miserable as it may sound. There's an abundance of ANSI Class rainwear available to keep you as comfortable as possible day in and day out, allowing you to focus on your job tasks and make the workday easier. With the proper gear, those rainy days will barely even phase you.
     
    While there's always been an answer to staying dry, never before has it been so easy. Manufacturers of safety garments are going above and beyond in recent years to combine proven older methods with new technology - making for some of the most durable, effective, comfortable and versatile ANSI compliant rainwear imaginable.
     

    Improved Materials

    Rainwear has really evolved since the days of giant vinyl overcoats. Lightweight, PU-coated polyester oxford fabrics and rugged 300-Denier polyester offer a lightweight alternative to the heavier and less durable materials of the past. Not only are these materials lighter and more comfortable but they also allow for less resistance and a better range of movement.
     

    Improved Comfort & Functionality

    Again, nowadays, rainwear is not a single piece of one-size-fits-all heavy waterproof clothing. Waterproof pockets and zippers are now the norm, as are removable waterproof hoods. Advancements in design and engineering have allowed for the integration of vents and/or ventilation zippers in strategic locations to help increase airflow and breathability in a garment which is normally airtight - and they do so in a way that still keeps the water out!
     

    Improved Visibility

    As wet and rainy weather naturally decreases visibility, it renders you more susceptible to accidents or injuries that can be directly attributed to not being seen. Since so many of the top manufacturers have advanced their reflectivity technology, this application naturally applies to their rainwear. High-reflectivity waterproof pants and bibs are now quite common and add a significantly higher level of visibility during wet conditions. During dry conditions, hi-vis pants may not be required - but since you're wearing the waterproof gear to stay dry, the added reflectivity is just another beneficial factor.
