Hard-working men know what it’s like to face the elements on a daily basis. Heat, cold, wind, and rain would all love a piece of you, but that’s not going to stop you. Not while wearing high-quality work jackets we offer here on Overlook Boots.
Let’s explore what it means to wear a durable work jacket and what to expect from it. Then browse our collection to find only the best jackets for men.
What to Expect from a Work Jacket?
Work jackets, as their name suggests, provide all the protection you need while out at work. They’re especially useful for workers who work outdoors and who need to face the wind, rain, or extreme temperatures.
Top-notch work jackets will keep you safe from all of the above while also allowing you to look your best. They also won’t limit your flexibility and freedom of movement which are crucial aspects of protective gear. That’s why you’ll find many of them feature stretch ribbed bi-swing back for added mobility.
A work jacket is nothing if not durable, so let’s start with that.
Traditionally, work jackets are made from heavy cotton duck canvas fabric. It’s what makes the jackets durable and why men who work rough jobs need them. There are a couple of other materials in use nowadays, and they’re all just as good as the old-fashioned heavy cotton duck canvas fabric.
A good, durable work jacket won’t start to tear just because of little physical exertion. It will keep protecting you throughout the workday, no matter where you’re working. Outside or inside, a work jacket is a reliable safeguard against the dangers of various workplaces.
Besides providing you with an equally stylish and durable layer of protective clothing, work jackets also provide additional utility in the form of extra pockets, alongside standard features such as a stand-up collar with a chin guard and insulation.
Work jackets must protect the wearer against the cold. They trap your body’s heat, preventing it from dissipating in low temperatures. On top of that, they are often waterproof and also stop the disrupting wind from causing havoc at work. This wind-resisting capability is especially useful for many men who have to do their work outside.
They are well-insulated using natural down, a synthetic one, or a combination of the two. Natural down retains your body temperature much more efficiently, making it a number one insulation material choice for working in very cold environments.
On the other hand, synthetic down is usually a better option in areas where it’s more likely to rain. It dries faster than natural down and does fairly well as an insulator.
These durable jackets come in every shape and size, just like the rest of your clothing does. You can now choose your jacket for work based on how good and strong you look in it, not just because it’s useful.
Timberland Pro jackets offer men at work all the protection that they need. They are the number one choice of workers who want to meet all the stringent workplace requirements while looking their best.
You don’t have to make the choice between the two anymore. These jackets have 100% quilted polyester lining, collars with chin guards, zipped pockets, and front and back yoke seams. It’s everything that a modifiable and practical work jacket needs.
With Wolverine, you get a work jacket that’s as durable and resilient as they come. While they’re usually considered heavy and bulky, this brand’s new modern jackets are the furthest thing from. They offer the same protection as before, except now they also look elegantly rugged.
Take a look at our collection of Wolverine work jackets and work shirts. They come with rolled shoulders or side slits (or both) for maximum comfort and enough pockets to satisfy any handyman in the world. Also, they have center front snap closure with metal logo snaps on them.
