Outdoor work can be so easily spoiled by poor weather conditions, which is why you need to be prepared with the right equipment to protect you from the rain and cold. That involves plenty of waterproof items, which Rite in the Rain merchandise is perfect for! In the following guide, we’ll walk you through the top five essential items you need for working outdoors.

Cold Weather Jacket

One of the most basic, yet essential bits of kit for outdoor work is a good cold weather jacket or coat. This will be one of the most important pieces of outdoor work gear to keep yourself warm and dry in the face of poor weather. A good quality waterproof jacket will keep you protected from the rain and cold while also being breathable enough to allow sweat and perspiration to escape. If your work requires hi-vis gear, you can also find hi-vis jackets as well.

Work Boots

A good pair of work boots are an essential piece of personal protection equipment for outdoor work. There’s a huge range of outdoor footwear to choose from, but if you’re preparing to beat the weather you’re going to want something waterproof. Other features you should keep an eye out for include toe caps, impact resistance and heat resistance. It’s important to remember to wear a good pair of socks as well, in order to prevent blisters and maintain warmth throughout cold conditions.

All Weather Pocket Pen
