    ​Multi-pocket work pants
    Eisenhower Multi-Pocket work pants feature removable pockets and a choice of three standard leg lengths, and are available in five different colors. The pants are reinforced with Cordura Classic fabric in high-wear areas such as hammer loops, kneepads and hem guards – transforming the most vulnerable parts of the garment into some of the strongest.

    The GlenGuard Hi-Vis Anti-Stat flame-resistant vest meets ANSI 107, ASTM 1506 and NFPA 70E standards.

GlenGuard Anti-Stat currently is available in woven fabric.
