Colder months are coming, and they’re coming in strong. While it seems counterintuitive, global warming, which is melting the Artic, is not only making our summer hotter but our winters colder too. Hence, making outerwear one of our top priorities when shopping is reasonable.
However, before you go on a shopping spree for outerwear, take a minute to decide. Should you buy five ordinary outerwear, or is it wiser to shop for one or two premium outerwear? Read on to find out the answer to this question today!
2 in 1: Stay Warm and Fashionable
One of the primary concerns about outerwear is that while they can keep you warm, it’s at the expense of fashion. Most padded winter jackets, for instance, are often puffy, making users look bulky.
However, such is not the case for premium outerwear. Nowadays, premium jackets are carefully designed to provide warmth and comfort while allowing their users to be fashionable.
A parka, for instance, is an excellent jacket for the cold season thanks to its warm insulation. Not to mention the waterproof shell that protects wearers from wind and falling snow.
Yet above all, parka jackets are versatile. You can wear them over casual clothing or formal clothes. Frankly, your imagination is the limit when styling already fashionable premium outerwear.
Premium Outerwear Promise Supreme Quality
Most people would associate the word expensive with premium outerwear. However, there’s also the misconception that the brand name makes premium outerwear expensive. Yet, in reality, the quality of materials used makes premium outerwear, well, premium.
Let’s take safety jackets like HiVis as an example. Manufacturers make safety jackets with nylon or polyester fabrics.
They coated them with a transparent polymer called Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU). This coating makes the safety jackets more durable, flexible, and have tensile strength. These extra coatings contribute to the high price tags of premium outerwear.
On the contrary, the selling point of ordinary safety jackets is their affordability. The only way to make this outerwear affordable is to cut production costs.
This could mean using less TPU coating or using low-quality nylon fabric. Whatever it is, it only means that ordinary outwear has questionable quality.
Depending on your industry, you likely deal with various workplace hazards. If, for instance, you have to deal with rain regularly, do you think the cheap safety jacket you bought can protect you?
What about the down jacket you bought made with a synthetic feather? Will it provide the same warmth and comfort as premium ones would? Will you last a cold winter with those?
With premium outerwear, there’s no room for doubt because every piece meets quality standards. Hence, you can rest assured that your outerwear can serve its purpose.
Premium Outerwear Ensures Workplace Safety
Outerwear isn’t only meant to protect its users from cold weather conditions. There are also made to help ensure safe working conditions. This is especially true for workplace safety outwears such as fr rain gear and HiVis.
Increased visibility is one of the most apparent benefits of safety outwear. The outwear has reflective accents and is primarily made of bright colors allowing wearers to be visible from afar.
This makes it extremely helpful for individuals working or going to foggy, high-traffic, and dark areas. It makes them easily identifiable and safer.
Moreover, premium safety outwears can make tracking employees on a large worksite easier. You can quickly identify members by adding name tags or job titles to the outerwear vests. It’s also a quick way for the whole team to know who is in charge of specific responsibilities.
Also, outwear like these is an excellent waterproof choice to keep dry! Finally, extra features such as fire-resistant make them a tremendous protective cover.
Finally, as you’re protected from extreme weather conditions, you can continue working comfortably. This means there’s no need to stop work or delay projects.
Instead, you’ll be more motivated since you’re comfortable and confident that you’re safe. This increased motivation leads to increased productivity. This, in turn, shortens the time it takes to complete your work.
Premium Outerwear is Highly Durable!
Another significant benefit of premium outerwear is that it last long. Most premium outerwear has extra coats of durable water repellent (DWR) finish. This allows the outwear to repel water and absorb moisture from the inside.
This extra feature helps reduce the chances of the outerwear materials breaking down due to moisture. Aside from this, today’s premium outerwear designers can reinforce the most compromised areas without needing to thicken the entire piece, thanks to technological advancements in clothing. Hence, you can expect premium outwears to withstand wear and tear much longer than ordinary outerwear.
Moreover, since this outerwear is durable, there’s no need to replace them often. You might even not need to buy new premium outerwear for at least three to five years.
Further, if you buy a timeless cut or shape, you’ll find no need to refresh your clothing rack to keep up with the trend. As a result, you’ll be able to save more money.
However, note that the longer lifespan of premium outerwear comes down to proper care. This means following wash care instructions and proper storage during off seasons.
Farewell Tips on Selecting Worthy Outerwear Products
There’s no denying that premium outerwear is expensive, but they’re worth the price. Well, that is if you know what to look for when choosing “the” premium outerwear. So, as a final gift, let us leave you with some shopping tips!
For starters, ask yourself what you need the outerwear for. This will help you narrow down your choices. If, for instance, you want outerwear for winter, then you can choose between heavy coats, snow, knitted, or woolen jackets.
Another thing to consider is the materials used in the premium outerwear. For example, wool or feather down is perfect for colder regions. While water-resistant and windproof fabrics are the way to go for wet and windy climates.
