First, with the cold weather season upon us, you want to stay as warm as possible when working outside. Lightweight safety sweatshirts are ideal for layering or wearing on their own. Hi-vis orange and yellow/lime with silver reflective stripes make most safety sweatshirts ANSI class 2 or 3 rated. There is a variety of styles, brands, and sizes available for both men and women. Let’s take a look at what makes safety sweatshirts a smart choice year-round.
Because there is a large variety of safety sweatshirt styles, deciding which one is the best choice can be tough. Popular styles include black bottom, two-tone, and hooded. High visibility hoodies help protect you from the elements like the wind and rain. They are also beneficial in shielding from the cold and providing extra insulation. You can wear an ANSI class 2 or 3 rated hi-vis sweatshirt in the place of a safety vest. This will maintain your safety and ensure you are in compliance on the job site.
While we have many different safety sweatshirts in stock, some of the most popular are from well-known brands. These brands include ML Kishigo, Pyramex, and OccuNomix. There are pockets for storage and both pullover and zip-front styles. Sizes range from small to 5x. Polyester fleece material keeps you warm and helps insulate. These sweatshirts and hoodies will also hold up to multiple washes. Custom company logos help promote your business. Select from screen printing, vinyl heat press or embroidery.
In addition to styles like two-tone and reflective safety sweatshirts, there are job-specific styles as well. HRC rated or FR safety sweatshirts protect from sparks or flames. ML Kishigo ANSI class 3 modacrylic flame-resistant hoodies come in a black bottom hi-vis yellow/lime color. This hoodie is HRC 2 rated and will protect against ARC flashes. The material remains breathable and the silver reflective stripes are flexible for comfort.
