TOP 5 MUST-HAVE FEATURES FOR RAINWEAR
Mother Nature won’t cooperate with your work schedule, but when you work outdoors, the rain isn’t an excuse to take a day off. Here are the top five must-have features in a rain jacket so you can choose the best rainwear that will keep you dry and let you get on with the job at hand.
1. Polyester Outershells on Rain Jackets
Polyester is the gold standard for water-resistant outershell fabric, and it’s used on all the best rainwear. For one thing, it’s one of the most naturally water-resistant materials around—most moisture will roll right off its thick fiber weave.
Polyester is also resistance to chemicals, mildew and lots of other common hazards. Our engineering process makes our polyester resistant to rips and tears, so the polyester outershells on clothes like our Extreme Softshell Jacket are exactly the kind of rugged protection serious workers need.
2. Synthetic Insulation for Quick-Drying Rain Gear
When it’s rainy or snowy, synthetic insulation is the way to go for your outerwear. You’ve probably heard a lot about the power of down insulation, but in wet weather, synthetic insulation is made of fibers that absorb less water and dry faster.
3. Rain Jackets with HiVis Reflective Tape and Piping
A rainy day doesn’t just make it harder to work—it makes it harder to stay visible in dangerous conditions. That’s why high-visibility or HiVis clothing is so important in so many industries. In some, like road construction, it’s even required by OSHA rules. At RefrigiWear, we offer HiVis rainwear options to keep you safe and help you get the job done, like our HiVis 3-in-1 Rainwear Jacket.
4. Rainwear with Storm Flaps to Keep You Dry
If the rain is heavy enough, it can pound through the nooks and crannies in your jacket. That’s why lots of our jackets come with storm flaps—material that fasten over the zipper or pockets on your jacket and protect you from rain. If you know rough weather is on the forecast, you can rest easy knowing you’ve got a jacket—like our ErgoForce Jacket—that’s up to the challenge.
5. Taffeta Inner Lining for Comfortable Rain Gear
Taffeta, a light fabric woven from polyester fibers, is the super-soft MVP of rainwear linings. Many of our best jackets for the rain, like our Lightweight Rainwear Jacket, use taffeta because it’s the ideal combination of comfortable warmth and breathability. Plus, it’s so light, you’ll forget you’re even wearing it.
A rainy day can be a tough draw when you work outside, but our rain gear is tougher. RefrigiWear® has the gear you need, from light jackets to heavy-duty rainwear, with the features that can keep you working hard no matter what Mother Nature throws your way.
