Rug Up! The Best In Winter Workwear

Winter is here and that means it's even more important to make sure you have the right workwear to keep you safe and well at work. With every season there comes a new set of weather hazards that Aussie workers must deal with to get the job done, and winter weather can cause cold stress, bringing down your immunity and increasing the likelihood of contracting illnesses that keep you off the job.

High quality jackets and warm shirts will allow you to keep snug without adding extra bulky layers that will inhibit your movements and weigh you down, and a few good pairs of warm socks and protective boots will go a long way over the colder months.

Let’s take a look at some of the premium winter workwear we have available from Hard Yakka and Bisley, to help you through this winter work season.




The Hard Yakka Y19326 Brushed Fleece Hoodie, is a great traditional, wear anywhere hoodie that is an essential item in any winter wardrobe. It's constructed from high quality, low pilling fleece, so it will stay looking fresher for longer. There are a few extra pockets to keep work items handy, two utility pockets on each hip and a pencil pocket on the arm, as well as the classic kangaroo pocket on the front.
