The Extra Advantages of Waterproof Workwear

Posted by Jack Durant at

When it comes to unpleasant work environments, wet and windy weather can be one of the worst. That’s why, if you’re working outdoors on horrible days, it’s so crucial to own the right waterproof workwear to enable you to stay warm, dry and comfortable. Here at Active Workwear, we are proud to offer our customers an enormous selection of waterproof workwear capable of making even the most challenging environments more tolerable.

Whether you are working on a construction site in the rain or tasked with handling an emergency outside in the dead of night, waterproof workwear is designed to handle whatever wet weather is thrown at it. That’s the main – and most obvious – way in which waterproof workwear is useful. But are you aware of some of the other advantages? Here are some of the excellent other reasons why it’s worth investing in that pair of waterproof work trousers.

Available in a variety of styles

As you would expect, waterproof workwear can come in many different guises. You can find waterproof workwear in a number of styles, whether you’re looking for waterproof overalls, waterproof work trousers, waterproof jackets for cold days or waterproof work tops. You can even find high-visibility designs, which will give you an extra level of safety if you’re working in potentially dangerous environments such as construction sites, roads, or railway lines.

Available in both men’s and women’s sizes

It can be a bummer if you are a woman in a construction job and have no appropriate clothes, instead being burdened with an ill-fitting shirt. Thankfully, there is a great selection of waterproof workwear which is suitable for both men and women. A prominent examples might include our woman’s hooded softshell jackets. You can also find waterproof clothing in unusual sizes to accommodate unique body types.

Not only water-proof also wind-resistant

Not only is waterproof workwear excellent at providing protection from water, but a lot of it also comes equipped with wind-resistant qualities. Owning the right waterproof jacket can help you to keep warm when the chilly winds start to come a-blowing, allowing you to continue concentrating on the task at hand. Examples include Blaklader’s quilt-lined work jacket.


Although it may be a rare occurrence, you may be looking to stay waterproof even in warmer conditions. Thankfully, although waterproof workwear can be heavy, much of it is also breathable to stop you from sweating excessively under several layers of clothing! If you wear a breathable jacket, such as Stormtech’s ultra-light soft shell with a breathability of 3,000g/m2, you’ll never have any problems with the heat, no matter what job you’re working on.
