Professional Builder takes a quick look at a sure-fire winner from Snickers.
It may be the height of summer, but in certain parts of the country you may still find yourself in need of a lightweight jacket. This 8004 jacket All Round Work Jacket is made with 37.5 technology that helps maintain ideal body temperature. It is ideal as a warm jacket under a windproof shell, but when the weather is mild you can wear it over a T shirt just to keep the chill off.
Part of the secret of the jacket is the breathable fabric, which releases the moisture caused by sweating so you remain dry even when exerting yourself. Dylan, our test pilot, says he particularly likes the high neck, which zips right up to the chin. He also likes the zipped pockets for phone and wallet.
So much for the functionality – but what about the looks? We polled a few people out on site and they all gave it the thumbs up. If you are a service engineer, plumber or electrician that is in and out of customers’ houses this jacket is going to turn a few heads – in the right kind of way. Snickers also provides an embroidery service, so you can have your company name and logo stitched on the front. This qualifies it as a company uniform and allows you to claim tax relief.
