That makes it -19-degrees F with the windchill factor, and it’s only a matter of minutes before your fingers, toes, ears, and nose start to lose feeling. After that, you have to act fast. If the thermometer reads -60-degrees F, you only have about 10 minutes before your skin is in danger. Frostbite can happen more quickly than you think, and this can lead to hypothermia, too. How can you prevent the weather from affecting you, both temporarily and permanently? Continue Reading…

Is Your Workwear Ready For The Cold?

Winterize your Workwear

So you went out and bought a great pair of work boots this year. They’ve been reliable all year long, getting you through more mud and rain than you’ve ever seen in your life. Once the temperatures drop, your work footwear could use a boost. Just as you need to dig out the winter box and start wearing a hat and gloves, your work shoes need some extra attention, too. They have to face snow, sleet, and even salt in the upcoming months. Sure, they’ll keep you protected like they always have, but taking the time to ensure their exteriors are maintained with proper conditioning and waxing can be the difference between soggy and dry socks.

Workwear Fabrics: What you Need to Know

workwear fabric blog

If your work is tough, you need work clothes that are just as tough. You need clothes made for working people, workwear that can withstand the rugged job you put them through. You need workwear that is durable, comfortable, and protective, from the best brands like Carhartt, Wrangler, Bulwark, Filson, Dickies, Red Kap, Under Armour, Wolverine, and more.
