Going to extremes: the outer limits

June 1st, 2014 / By: / Products

It might be the last thing you want to think about in June, but winter will return. Working outdoors in extreme cold and wind doesn’t have to make people miserable. Carhartt Inc., a global premium work clothing company, has teamed up with Mount Vernon FR to create a new line of outerwear that offers a superior level of warmth and comfort through greater wind resistance and durability, without adding weight or bulk.

The Flame-Resistant (FR) Extremes® Arctic line includes parkas, coats, biberalls and hoods manufactured using the latest developments in fabric technology to produce outerwear that can withstand the toughest elements. Protection begins with the outer shell, made from an abrasion-resistant nine-ounce FR canvas, using Mount Vernon FR’s AMTEX™ Plus cotton/high-tenacity nylon FR fabric. The garments feature Carhartt’s proprietary Wind Shield™ technology to guard against potentially dangerous wind chills.

Worker comfort and ease of movement are also accommodated. The FR Sherpa lining traps air to help the wearer maintain a warmer core body temperature. Lightweight insulation provides superior warmth without the bulk. Other features such
as multiple utility pockets and large, mitten-friendly zipper pulls
make life on the job easier; the parka and coat even have an inner
radio pocket with a pass-through for a microphone and cord.
