Fleece jackets are real all-rounders and support you not only in your free time, but also in your everyday work. Workwear must be weatherproof and comfortable so that you can fully concentrate on your job. The right work jacket made of fleece is sufficiently windproof and protects you from the cold in winter as a second insulation layer in addition to a hardshell jacket. Warming and breathable at the same time, work fleece jackets are indispensable if you want to adapt comfortably and quickly to changing weather conditions.
The history of fleece jackets
Fleece is a velour fabric made of polyester and cotton, in which the threads are not woven but knitted. The stitches are then cut open and roughened, which is how workwear made of fleece gets its fluffy surface. The fabric was first presented to the public in 1979 by the textile company Polartec. The lightweight material was designed specifically for outdoor use. Today, mainly work jackets, pants, hats and also gloves are made of fleece. You can recognize the quality of fleece work jackets by the index number, which usually ranges from 100 to 300 g per square meter and indicates how dense the fabric is.
Fleece jacket as a work jacket - optimal properties for any weather
Fleece has a number of wonderful properties, which is why the material is so popular for outdoor and work clothing. Work jackets made of fleece inspire especially by their high thermal insulation capacity at very low weight and small pack size. Fleece is easy to care for and at the same time resistant as well as crease-resistant and elastic. The surface of your fleece jacket is water-repellent and dries quickly. Thus, it immediately puts away the light summer rain and also copes wonderfully with the morning autumn fog. For all environmental friends there is another plus: Fleece is recyclable and can be made from recycled material, such as PET bottles.
Work fleece jacket - easy to clean, breathable and comfortable to wear
Fleece jackets are usually cut close to the figure and have a zipper. The slightly pre-shaped arm section allows you maximum freedom of movement, the extended back area protects the back of your body even when kneeling or bending.
You can choose between models with chest, front and/or sleeve pockets. Two-way zippers are standard with most manufacturers. Some work fleece jackets are reinforced with softshell on the shoulders or back to protect abrasion-intensive zones from wear. Interior wind flaps on the zipper protect you from strong winds.
Work jackets made of fleece are comfortable to wear as a middle layer under a wind- or rain-repellent hardshell jacket and can be a useful addition to your workwear.
