Staying Dry is the Key with Today’s High-Tech Fabrics

Layer To Stay Dryer

We already know that layering clothing is the best way to stay warm in cold weather, right? And with advances in fabric technology over the last 10 to 15 years, today’s cold weather warriors can now utilize all layers to help keep skin dry – even with flame-resistant workwear.

Remember, effective layering means starting with a base layer that wicks (pulls) moisture away from the body, a middle layer that insulates and an outer layer that keeps out the wind and water. Until recently, silk and wool were considered the best moisture-wicking fabrics. And they are still good choices, especially for those who prefer natural fibers. But moisture-wicking technology has improved dramatically with innovative new synthetic fabrics and blends. Continue Reading…

Muck Terrain Boots Earn Time In the Muck

Muck Boots Terrain

The best inventions don’t come out of people’s heads. They come out of people’s hands. What we mean is, the best inventions usually rise out of necessity. “I need something that does this, and it doesn’t exist yet, so I’ll make it.” Rather than “if I make this neat cool thingy, I bet people will buy it, since it’s new and shiny.”

Years ago, a little company with a rather appropriate name, Muck, put a product on the market that was the first of its kind. Waterproof work boots made out of neoprene. Yes, the same stuff they make wetsuits out of. Neoprene is a synthetic rubber that is known for its durability,  chemical resistance, burn resistance; and most importantly, for its flexibility, even over a wide range of temperatures. In short, it’s like rubber… on steroids. Muck is the original neoprene boot maker. And in all the time since, nobody has made a better neoprene boot yet. Except Muck… with its latest line of neoprene boots: Muck Terrain Boots (MTR-000). Continue Reading…
