Pyramex Winter 2020 High Visibility Workwear Covers all the Bases

Hi-Vis Line is Chock-Full of Features Including Tons of Pocket Options, Fleece-Lining, Quilted Interiors, Rip-Stop Shells and More

Winter is coming and with it, night falls earlier making high visibility gear even more important when on the job. This year, Pyramex has worked to ensure its Winter 2020 hi-vis workwear gives you as much additional functionality and comfort as possible. Offering a wide variety of clothing options from vests and long sleeves to pants and heavy-duty jackets, this winter’s hi-vis lineup includes everything you could possibly be looking for.

All Pyramex hi-vis gear is designed to be exceptionally luminescent and easily discernible anywhere and against any background. Because safety is Pyramex’s first priority, all hi-vis workwear meets ANSI/ISEA 107-2015 standards with some weather resistant workwear also meeting CAN/CSA Z96-15 standards. Required by many employers, Pyramex has labored to develop its line of hi-vis clothing to ensure that each piece is thoughtfully designed from the size and placement of pockets and seasonal weather-proofing details to ultra-soft and comfortable linings for all-day wear.

When choosing any gear from the Pyramex Basics series you know you are getting a tried-and-true article of clothing. Perfect for when the weather turns chillier, the RP31 Series of jackets feature a solid polyester shell with a zip out polar fleece liner. Available in hi-vis orange or yellow, the jacket has a concealed detachable hood with a drawstring to keep the cold and wet out. The jacket has also been designed to house all the pockets you need – and maybe some you didn’t know you needed, but will love – including a cell phone pocket and a radio chest pocket with a clear panel and two mic tabs. The RP31 Series jacket meets ANSI Type R, Class 3 safety standards.

When winter hits hard, look to the Pyramex Heavy Duty series of work wear to protect you from the elements. A brand new addition to the Heavy Duty series is the RPB35 Series jacket in all black. With a Teflon treated waterproof rip-stop polyester shell, the jacket has a quilted interior, elastic band at the wrists and a concealed detachable hood. Heat-sealed seams and a dual zipper with a front closure and hook and loop storm flap make for warmer and dryer shifts. The RPB35 Series meets ANSI Type 0, Class 1 safety standards and is AATCC 127 Waterproof.

Be sure to check out the company’s ultimate winter offering, the RPB36 Series of jackets that have both an outer parka and inner jacket. Part of the Heavy Duty Series, the waterproof outer parka has a Teflon rip-stop shell and a quilted lining as well as boasts seven external pockets and five internal pockets. Nothing has been left out of the design of this outer parka that has all heat-sealed seams, elastic bands at the wrists, a concealed detachable hood with a drawstring and slack adjustment, and a dual zipper front closure with a hook and loop storm flap. The inner jacket is constructed of fleece, has elastic bands at the wrists as well as a drawstring around the waist for added warmth. The RPB36 Series jacket meets ANSI Type R, Class 3 safety standards and its outer shell is AATCC 127 Waterproof.

Pair this jacket with the RWB46 Series pants and you’ll be ready to take on the winter solstice. These bib-styled pants have eight – yes, eight – pockets and are made from a weather-resistant Oxford polyester with a quilted interior insulation. Heavy-duty black material at the knees hides dirt and increases the durability of the pants. An elastic waistband and adjustable suspenders make for a comfortable fit. Trust no detail has been missed including boot zippers with a storm flap as well as a built-in hammer loop for easy storage. The RWB46 Series pants meet ANSI Type R, Class E safety standards.
