Back in 2015, we wrote a piece on the evolution of workwear: what the future holds. One of technology advances we touched on was the use of EL lighting, in order to create work clothes which were illuminated in all conditions. Today we are going to take a closer look at one of the products which is helping to bring work and leisure wear into the 21st century, and one step closer to the products of the future. From Fristads comes this exciting new product to their A Code range – the Code 1460 Windproof Reflective Jacket.
The jacket features two concealed zip pockets at the sides, and underarm ventilation to help keep you cool whilst you work, with a collar that features a comfy microfibre lining. The main fabric is a lightweight 75gsm polyester which is protective against both wind and rain.
So how does this jacket tie into the Future of workwear?
The standout feature of this jacket is what it does in low light conditions. The grey stripes are for more than just style, they’re reflective 3M stripes, woven into the fabric. This illuminates the jacket when its dark, allowing you to be seen. This is a great product for hikers and those working in darkened, low visibility environments.
So be safe, and be seen – The Fristads Code 1460 Windproof Reflective Jacket is available alongside our other excellent Fristads products in our online store – pick up yours today!
