Best Winter Work Jackets

Next up in our protective clothing series are the best jackets to protect you from the rain and cold weather. With Storm Christoph wreaking havoc across the UK this week and snowy weather in the forecast, we thought there was no better time to share our current top picks.

If your job brings you outside on a regular basis then you know how getting soaked and being cold can ruin your day. Wearing the right gear that protects you against the elements can turn your day around! So, what should you be looking for in quality winter work jackets? 

Well, some important factors that you may want to consider include;

  • Waterproof
  • Windproof
  • Watertight pockets
  • High Visibility
  • Storm flap
  • Hood
  • Adjustable cuffs
  • Warm inner lining (or perhaps no lining if you would rather layer your clothing)
  • Breathable fabric
  • Comfort
