New Outer Layer Jacket Protects Workers from Harsh Elements
ST. PAUL, Minn. (October 6, 2009) – Ergodyne today announced that it is expanding its CORE Performance Work Wear™ line to include two new outer layer garments. The garments, a thermal-weight jacket (model 6465) and thermal-weight vest (model 6463), are designed to provide workers with a breathable first layer of defense against cold and wind.
A natural addition to existing CORE Base and Mid-Layer garments, the new Outer Layer Thermal-Weight Jacket and Vest complete the three-part CORE layering system and deliver first-class protection. Water-repellent coatings and linings keep wind and water from getting in, while at the same time allowing body moisture to get out. The resulting system helps keep workers dry and comfortable while working hard in cold temperatures.
“We’ve been in the development phase for nearly two years on the Outer layer, seeking to create technical work wear that meets the standards set by our world-class Base and Mid Layers,” said Tom Votel, Ergodyne President and CEO. “Our thermal-weight jacket and vest perform like nothing else on the market, and they have strong curb appeal. I’m excited for the snow to start flying in St. Paul just so I can wear my CORE outer layer jacket.”
Key Features of CORE Performance Work Wear Jacket & Vest:
- Rugged 500D Nylon Outer Shell
- Warm Fleece Lining
- Water repellent coatings and linings keep wind, snow, and rain out
- Armortex™ reinforcement zones on elbows and shoulders
- Heavy-duty YKK® Zippers
