Fleece Safety Jackets
Fleece Safety Jackets are soft, lightweight jackets that can be worn in fall and spring to protect you from the cold. During winter, a Fleece Safety Jacket can be worn under a thicker or more insulated safety jacket for enhanced warmth and comfort.
Fleece is an incredibly popular insulating material in work jackets, but most of them don’t use actual sheep fleece. Instead, they use synthetic polyester fiber blends that are more economical and easier to clean. Synthetic fleece most commonly used in a jacket is the low-pilling fleece style, that is a smoother texture while still providing all of the warmth and comfort. Sherpa fleece, found in work jackets, are still a synthetic fleece, but are different because one side is smooth while the opposite side is thicker and fuzzy.

Softshell Safety Jackets
Softshell Safety Jackets have a softer outer shell layer made from woven fabric, plus a fleece inner liner. Softshell Safety Jackets are considerably lighter and more flexible than parkas or other hard shell outerwear, but they’re also engineered to give you outstanding warmth. This dynamic approach is the perfect way to split the difference between a light fleece and a heavier style of jacket.
Versatility and comfort are what make the Softshell Safety Jacket style so popular for work jackets. The water resistant membrane technology that’s in today’s softshell fleeces means that some of them can even handle harsh weather conditions. If you need extreme mobility but don’t want to sacrifice warmth, a softshell fleece is an awesome choice.

Safety Rain Jackets
Putting in a hard day’s work in the rain means choosing the right Safety Rain Jackets to protect yourself. The Safety Rain Jacket is the go-to rain gear due to its versatility and the number of different models available. Most Safety Rain Jackets are longer than a standard jacket, such as a trench coat, and include features such as a double-snap cover to keep water out of the zipper. Many also offer a snap-on rain hood that can be attached as needed.
Rainy conditions make outdoor work more dangerous in a variety of ways, and that’s especially true for fields such as construction and utilities work. People in these jobs are already vulnerable to being hit by vehicles or heavy machinery operated by someone who is distracted or can’t see the worker. If you work around heavy equipment or moving vehicles, having an ANSI Tested Safety Rain Jacket will help to increase your visibility to vehicle and equipment operators.
In rainy conditions, high-visibility Safety Rain Jackets provides a crucial visibility boost that can save lives. The bright colors and high-performance reflective tape used in high visibility garments are critical for helping workers stand out and be seen in the visual field of drivers and machine operators.
