What is a Softshell Jacket?
A softshell jacket is designed to be unrestrictive and protect you from the rain and wind. Most of the softshell jackets we stock are water-resistant, windproof, and breathable, characteristics which allow them to fulfill this designated purpose. Softshell jackets are made from woven fabrics, which give them a warm and stretchy feeling, allowing for easy movement that wouldn’t be possible with more heavy duty jackets, yet the warmth and comfort to be expected of a workwear jacket still remains. The softshell material alone doesn’t fully waterproof the jacket, but, with the addition of taped seams, fully waterproof softshell jackets have been made by our partners and are available from our site.
Even though softshell jackets are not being wholly waterproof, our softshells are still no slouch. Our softshell coats are breathable, meaning they can be worn for longer periods of time and for more intensive activities as warm air and moisture will leave through the outside of the coat and evaporate, preventing you from getting too warm. This is especially relevant if you are wearing a fleece lined softshell or work in a place that builds up high levels of heat. Many of our softshell work jackets are also windproof, keeping the chill out without needing a thick layer on.
The freedom of movement in our softshell workwear coats
Lightweight softshell jackets are excellent options for those who need protection from light showers and wind yet, also require enhanced freedom of movement. Less weight means its easier to move around and the stretchy nature of softshell jackets pairs with this quite well, making movement a breeze. Many of our softshell work jackets also have form-cut sleeves, allowing arm movement to be freed up even further.
Hi Vis softshell jacket properties
Some of the best softshell jackets we stock are hi vis softshell work jackets. Using fluorescent colours and reflective tape, these softshell jackets keep the wearer seen in low light conditions such as those during bad weather or work at night. These hi vis softshell jackets also take advantage of materials such as Teflon to help protect themselves from dirt building up. Aside from the obvious benefit of not needing to clean the jacket as often, the lack of dirt actually means the hi vis colours and reflective tape keep their shine and luster for longer, extending the lifespan of the jacket.
