What’s the Toughest Gear For Cold Weather

Top 10 Toughest: Get-It-Done Gear

Most folks are not built for the conditions you face – 10 hour days in blistering, subzero temps, with nothing between you and Mother Nature but your grit and your gear. When the job calls for the toughest people around, your gear needs to keep up, too. RefrigiWear answers the call with the strongest, most durable garments the cold has ever faced. It’s time to gear up with our top 10 toughest and show the brutal cold who’s boss.  

Iron-Tuff Hooded Coveralls – It’s no surprise that the Iron-Tuff Hooded Coveralls make the cut. Head-to-toe protection from high winds, cold temps down to -50°F and the roughest jobs with a strong, abrasion-resistant outershell make you an unstoppable force against whatever the day holds. Ruthless temps and hazardous conditions? We’ve got you covered with our HiVis Iron-Tuff® Coveralls for maximum protection when it counts. 

Iron-Tuff High Bib Overalls – Get core protection plus upper body mobility with these overalls. The high front and back keep your upper body warm without restricting movement. These overalls are warm, comfortable but most of all, they’re tough. Heavy duty construction fights back against wear and tear from hard work, season after season with reinforced stress points and a durable outershell. No nonsense. No frills. Just a good ol’ fashioned set of hard-working overalls. 

54 Gold Jacket – The 54 Gold Jacket keeps you warm down to a brisk -50°F with an innovative WarmPlus graphene lining that works like a personal space heater. It stores super-charged body heat and reflects it back to you so you’re always warm. The job’s already tough – you don’t need to also fight against bulky gear. The 54 Gold Jacket features Performance-Flex, a ribbed material that expands as you move, so there’s no tugging, no half-way reaching and nothing holding you back from crushing your tasks. Warmth is gold in your working conditions, and you get it with this jacket. 

Extreme Hooded Jacket – Extreme warmth meets extreme toughness in one heck of a jacket that tells Old Man Winter to go frost himself. With a tough outershell that fights back wind, water and abrasions from rough job sites, you’ll get it done faster and more comfortably. Lightweight thanks to a warm combo of AirBlaze® insulation and our WarmPlus graphene lining, you’ll get max warmth with less bulk than other jackets. Bonus: when the job starts to heat up, you have under-arm vents to let out some steam.
