The best shirts for heavy outdoor work

The clothing we wear outside the home to protect ourselves from cold, heat and rain are called Outdoor Wear and it includes Outdoor Shirts and Jackets. They constitute the most important piece of clothing in any wardrobe. A shirt can be considered as the personal protective agent as same as goggles, hats, caps or respirators.

The importance of clothes is depicted from the fact that they are now the most fashionable yet most required stuff in todays life. Even the employers are bound to protect their employees against over exposure to the external solar radiation. The cotton canvas shirts known for its heavy outdoor work usage are known around the world for their durability and style.

Tips for heavy outdoor work

  • Apply a sunscreen lotion with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 15 or higher to stop at least 93 percent of the UV rays. There is a way to apply sunscreen which includes care of not going out in sun for at least 15 minutes after applying and it should be reapplied in every two hours.
  • Wear goggles which can block UV rays and protect your eyes.
  • Outdoor work locations should be shaded as far as possible. One should use natural shade from trees, buildings and other structures. Shade can also be applied using artificial shading agents such as canopies, tents and other portable, easily erected structures.
  • According to the law, the recommended break period every hour for average workers performing medium physical labor in hot weather should be 10 minutes.
  • The recommended clothing for saving the skin from the wrath of UV light is loose-fitting clothes which allows sweat to evaporate. Closely woven cotton like stuff of light colors are recommended. Cotton is the best solution for such heavy sun exposure tasks. Long-sleeve shirts and long trousers give good skin protection. The remaining parts of the body exposed to sun such as head, eyes, etc should be protected by other means.
  • For the protection of head and face, it is recommended to use hat that has an all-round brim at least 10 cm wide, and is made of natural fibres in a light colour. Hats such as white sailing hat or wide-brimmed giggle hat will be useful. The fabric for making hat should be a close knit stuff to ensure that it is opaque to sunlight.

Fleece Shirts & Jackets - Fleece Jackets are the most common insulating layer for the body. They combine the insulation qualities with moisture wicking property to move moisture to the outer layer. Fleece Jackets are more durable and can be used without an outer shell. Fleece Jackets are generally treated to make them more water-resistant.

Hard Shell Jackets - These are the waterproof and breathable jackets which provide the three layer system by giving protection against all external factors.
