In addition, it is also very important that they include elements that allow the worker to keep the essential objects they need for each task safe on their possession. Using the jacket together with a raincoat, offers ideal protection from the rain. Softshell jackets are water repellent, but in extreme rain it is advisable to use them together with raincoats.
We must also highlight that they are very durable. The fabric with which they are made is rigid and does not form the typical “balls” or lint from wear and tear. In addition, this toughness makes them more repellent to hair and dirt.
Finally, we must bear in mind that as an essential jacket for outdoor work, it must offer protection in low visibility in addition to protection against adverse weather. Consequently, the softshell jacket is made of high visibility fabric and includes retro-reflective tape that makes the user visible in these types of settings and conditions.
