When working in extreme conditions, the choice of clothing plays a key role. Especially in autumn and winter, it is essential to dress properly to protect from cold, rain and adverse weather. Let’s analyse the main factors to consider before buying a garment that can make all the difference.
First and foremost, a work jacket must be comfortable. It must adapt the operator’s body and have a good fit. This is essential because when working in extreme conditions, having maximum freedom of movement and being able to assume less conventional positions represents an advantage. Moreover, attention must devoted to the choice of fabrics and specially on the effects the material produces on the skin. The skin should not be subject to cutaneous reactions due to factors such as sweat and dryness. Many jackets are made of resistant materials, but they are often uncomfortable because rubbing or non-breathable fabrics cause irritation and rashes.
The second factor to consider is functionality. The work jacket must protect the operator from adverse weather factors such as rain, snow and wind. As far as temperature is concerned, the jacket’s task is not, as is often thought, to warm the body but to prevent heat dissipation. Moreover, a good work jacket must be breathable and effectively combat moisture. It must drain water vapour to the outside, thus reducing sweating as much as possible. Besides being made of durable and waterproof materials, it should also feature various pockets and adjustable components such as a hood, sleeves and collar height.
Last but not least, the aesthetics is also important. Although this component often takes second place to comfort and functionality, an attractive garment plays an important role, even on the construction site. Wearing a visually appealing jacket makes you feel at ease, thus improving not only the perception of yourself, but also your work approach.
