COMPLYING with visibility standards while staying cool is possible with a new poly-cotton comfort polo shirt from Hip Pocket Work Wear .
The new shirt will be launched from 21 to 23 March at Safety In Action and Materials & Manual Handling and is said to be significantly cooler than even high quality micromesh in hot, sunny, airless conditions.
While Hip Pocket Work Wear continues to include premium micromesh in its work wear range, it developed the unique poly-cotton top in response to feedback from workers that the synthetic fibre was hot to the touch in direct sun and clung to sweaty skin.
While micromesh performs best with good air circulation, Hip Pocket's poly-cotton shirts are designed to take sweat away from the skin, keeping workers comfortable, even when the air is still.
Employers can also breathe easy: the polo's fabric is complaint with AS/NZ 1906.1997 the garment itself meets AS/NZ 4602.1999 and also meets 50UPF rating for out door workers.
The new poly-cotton polo complements a wide range of work wear, rehydration and personal cooling products, safety signage, footwear, first aid and safety equipment supplies on show at Hip Pocket Work Wear's stand F42.
