We don’t think you need any more mental pictures, so we’ll just go ahead and tell you how you can prevent this dreaded swamp ass from destroying your otherwise productive work day. Continue Reading…

Grundens: Making Your Work Life Drier!

grundens wps blog

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. Continue Reading…

Teva: Comfortable and Durable Sandals Since 1984

teva sandals wps blog

When it was first created in 1984, the Teva sandal was thought to be the first amphibious, athletic sandal. The sandals were invented by Grand Canyon river guide Mark Thatcher for those seeking an active, outdoor life with comfort. He wanted people to enjoy the lifestyle he so enjoyed without restraint. Calling the first Teva sandals humble is quite the understatement. The well-known, sturdy sandals of today were created with just an old Velcro watch strap attached to a flip flop. (Talk about improvising!) Thatcher originally signed a deal with California Pacific and 200 pairs were sold in the first year. In 1985, Deckers Outdoor Corporation entered into a licensing agreement to produce and distribute Teva sandals. Continue Reading…

Wool vs. Merino Wool

Merino Wool WPS Blog

If you wear clothes, it’s safe to assume two things about you. First, that you probably do not get as many strange looks in restaurants as those that don’t wear clothes; and second, that you’ve probably heard of merino wool, and heard a lot about it. So what is merino wool, and how is it different from regular wool? Well, glad you asked. Put on your learning socks (are they made of merino wool?) and prepare to assimilate some knowledge.

Stay Safe When It’s Dark Outside

Screen Shot 2015-03-24 at 4.42.12 PM

Just because the sun is starting to sink down slightly below the horizon and its rays are creating a beautiful painting across the sky doesn’t mean you’re done with your work day. Your tough hours on the clock are far from over, but you’re okay with that. As visibility decreases, you need to make sure you’re kept safe if you’re working later in the evenings. Even those early morning hours have limited visibility, especially with fog and lack of sunlight. High-visibility clothing, like reflective vests and hi-vis overalls, will help you stay seen in low lighting. You can never be too careful in dangerous situations, so let yourself stand out in dimmer working conditions. Continue Reading…
