Workin’ Up a Sweat Indoors: Advice for Working in Cold Storage (0°F to 32°F)

Working in and out of freezers is never easy, but it can be especially challenging when your job requires a lot of physical activity that raises your body temperature and leaves you wondering—what the heck gear do I need? Cold weather work gear for women not only needs to keep you warm, it also needs to keep you comfortable and give you the flexibility to be active during a long workday.

Here are some head-to-toe recommendations to keep you working comfortably:

A workwear essential, the best place to start for women’s cold weather work gear is a pair of insulated bib overalls. The Women’s Insulated Softshell Bib Overalls have a comfort rating of -20°F, two hand-warmer pockets and heel reinforcement patches so you don’t have to worry about wearing holes in them as you walk literal miles around the warehouse every day.

Add the Women’s Insulated Softshell Jacket, a thermal work jacket for women that's also comfort rated for -20°F conditions, when you’ve slowed down enough that your body temp starts to drop. The inset thumbhole cuffs help keep out the cold and silver reflective piping keeps you seen and safe.

Keep your head, neck and ears protected with the verstatile Convertible Balaclava that keeps you warm no matter what environment you find yourself in. It’s a true multi-tasker, just like you, working as a face mask, gaiter or full balaclava.

These insulated safety toe work boots are so comfortable, the men you work with will be jealous! They’ve got an ASTM composite safety toe, plus they're waterproof and are electrical hazard compliant.

Keep your head protected without using a hood that can block your peripheral vision. This 4-in-1 Convertible Balaclava has you covered as you move through different environments throughout your day. Use it to protect your ears and nose or convert to a gaiter to cool down when you need to.
