Waterproofing

Waterproofing is the act of making something resistant to water, and in this case, that something includes workwear. Water and moisture can’t penetrate a material when it’s 100% waterproof, and even humidity is prevented from penetration. In rain coats and waders, waterproofing is a necessity if you and your clothes to stay dry. Sometimes the main material is waterproof, and other times there’s a water-resistant finish that’s applied to the exterior to prevent water from seeping through the canvas (or whatever material is used in the rain gear).

It's been a long day. You sit down and slowly take off your old work boots, and you dread what's next - peeling off those nice, wet socks. When your work footwear can't handle the rain, and it gets soaked all the way through, your feet take the hit as well. There are better options for you. Waterproof footwear is designed specifically to keep your feet and socks dry. It's as simple as that. You might think this only includes rain boots, and perhaps you're already imagining yourself jumping through puddles with a brightly-colored pair of them. While that might sound like fun (and nobody's stopping you), there are various kinds of waterproof shoes that'll make sure the elements stay on the outside - where they belong.

We all have a bunch of stuff to carry. We aren’t octopuses, so our hands are only capable of a limited amount of holding.

Make all that heavy lifting a much better process by slinging one of these Carhartt bags over your shoulder. If you like to keep all of your electronics and gadgets in one place, there's a Carhartt briefcase bag just for you. It even features Rain Defender technology to make sure your stuff remains dry, and the water-resistant base is made out of a durable Duravax material. You can store your laptop in this, and there are compartments to stash files, notebooks, and other important [...]

Imagine a group of fishermen on a boat, hoping to catch enough fish to support their families. They have to work - rain or shine - to make sure they don't go hungry. What did these seamen wear before rain gear was invented? Whatever they wore, it wasn't Grundens rainwear if it was before 1911. In this year, on the Swedish West coast in a coastal village named Grundsund, Carl A. Grunden started producing oiled garments, which are commonly known as oil skins. Carl was the son of a North Sea fisherman, so he knew how hard the rain can be on the worker. He wanted to make it an easier job. He brought his ideas to life by creating waterproof rain gear for people like his father. Grunden was focused on creating the best quality rainwear that also [...]
