    Flame-resistant reflective material

    8735 Silver Flame-Resistant Transfer Film and Reflective Material, and 9740 Industrial Wash Flame-Resistant Silver Transfer Film, provide protection from heat, flame and arc flash hazards with the added benefit of stitchless bonding. The 9740 can sustain 50 washes, while the 8735 can sustain 25 washes – decreasing the need to continually purchase new workwear.

    Work jacket

    The M750T combines comfort and arc flash protection into one performance jacket workers want to wear. Made out of 11-ounce FRMC Microfleece, it features a quarter zip front and is moisture-wicking and fast-drying for maximum comfort. Soft, strong and low maintenance, the jacket is available in black in sizes extra small through 3XL.

    Insect-resistant coverall

    This lightweight cotton coverall features an odorless repellency that is EPA-registered to last through 70 washings – the expected lifetime of most garments. The coveralls are registered to repel mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, chiggers and midges. It is long-sleeved with a two-way zip front and silver high-visibility striping on the arms, legs and shoulders.

    Strobe vest

    The EL500 Strobe Safety Vest features electroluminescent blinking lights on the front and back for added visibility in dark work environments. This technology enables the wearer to be visible at farther distances, giving an oncoming driver greater reaction time for braking. Each vest includes a lithium ion rechargeable battery pack with a wall charger.

    Work jean

    This carpenter jean not only is comfortable and great looking, it also is built for durability. The 12-ounce Indura soft denim is one of the lightest denims available and has the wash-down appearance of street jeans. That, along with the triple-feld seams and heavy-duty brass zipper, means it will look great and last.
