Milwaukee® Introduces NEW Work Gear Range


Milwaukee® Introduces NEW Work Gear Range

Milwaukee Tool is launching a new line of Work Gear designed to outperform and outlast traditional workwear in demanding jobsite environments and extreme weather.     

“At Milwaukee®, we always start with extensive jobsite research to become experts on the trades. After years of working with tradesmen in cold weather, we saw multiple reoccurring issues and expanded our research focus to understand dress patterns, layering trends, and the most common pieces of apparel on the jobsite. The insights gathered from this research are the defining factors of the ground-up product designs we’re launching in 2017,” said Sendi Spoljaric, Group Product Manager for Milwaukee Tool. “The introduction of our Work Gear line reflects Milwaukee®’s continued focus on providing trade-focused solutions. For decades, tradesmen have been forced to choose between durability and mobility. Milwaukee® is committed to delivering products that outlast traditional work gear and make it easy for tradesmen to move and stay comfortable while working.”

The Milwaukee® GRIDIRON Hooded Jacket and Tradesman Jacket are built for tradesmen who need insulated Work Gear that survives the jobsite without adding bulk and restricting their ability to work. GRIDIRON Ripstop Polyester reinforces high-wear areas and is 3X more durable than 340 g cotton duck against abrasion and tearing while accounting for 25% less bulk. Large riveted and reinforced utility pockets and a tarnish-resistant metal zipper provide additional durable enhancements to prevent common product failures. Engineered to maximise productivity, the jackets are made to move with FREEFLEX stretch panels across the back, articulated elbows, and lighter materials in areas that require mobility.

“As athletic base layer materials have become more popular, they have failed to address the durability needs of work environments. With the launch of the new WorkSkin Base Layer we’ve focused on bringing this level of performance materials and extended life to meet the needs of the professional tradesman. By understanding how our users work in cold weather better than anyone else, we’ve developed a performance base layer for the professional tradesman – a first in our industry,” said Sendi.

The Milwaukee® WorkSkin cold weather Base Layer is constructed to handle the demands of hard work in cold conditions. Unlike cotton options, the new Base Layer features fast wicking sweat zones underneath the arms and across the upper back move moisture away quickly from high-sweat areas to avoid dampness, cold and freezing. Unlike base layers designed for athletic use, its durable fabric resists pilling and fighting odor to extend product life. When worn next-to-skin and under outer layers, WorkSkin manages moisture and body temperature to help tradesmen work dry, stay warm and stay comfortable in the cold – all while standing up to the demands of the jobsite.

Whether on or off the jobsite, Milwaukee®’s Heavy Duty Work Gear provides users the durability and comfort they need without sacrificing jobsite productivity.
