We all know how unpredictable the British weather can be. Sunshine may be forecast only for a torrential downpour to occur an hour later. This makes weather protective clothing in the United Kingdom essential. Dog walkers, runners, holiday makers and even outdoor workers need durable clothes that will keep them dry and safe from the elements. Government Health and Safety Executives warn that the effects of weather can seriously impact the health of outdoor workers. Luckily, technology is advancing at a mind bending speed. A new range of quality outdoor clothing is available that is suitable for outdoor workers and countryside enthusiasts. These designs can protect the body during long hours in the cold weather.
Outdoor workers can now buy heated jackets. Powered by a small battery, these warming designs can create a snug environment for even the seasoned outdoor worker. Worried you’ll get too hot? No problem! Wearers can turn down the heat on a heated jacket with an adjustable switch. These jackets can also charge overnight whilst you’re indoors. Recent research has found that Thermal comfort can prevent cold stress, a serious healthcare issue. If you are an outdoor worker, please make sure that you are aware and understand your employment rights regarding your well-being.
Holidaymakers, runners and the common dog walker also require sturdy, weather proof clothing. Recent research has found that dog walkers walk an astounding one thousand miles per year outdoors. Awful British weather is the number one factor that deters dog walkers from venturing outside. Dress well and you won’t have this problem. Outdoor runners on the other hand should live by the rule of layers to increase warmth and permit movement. Wear a breathable base layer, warming mid layer and rainproof outer layer consisting of a waterproof jacket which can protect the body from moisture and prevent coldness.
Recent news highlights that the British are turning their backs on holidays abroad for more affordable, shorter breaks in the United Kingdom (UK). 66% of holiday makers are planning to holiday in the UK next year instead of far flung destinations in Asia and the Americas. Brexit developments and the weak British pound have influenced Brits in to taking ‘staycations’ (staying in the United Kingdom to holiday). This decision leads holidaymakers into buying warmer clothing that is suitable and interchangeable with the hot and cold weather. Hoodies, jackets and gillets are perfect for holidaying in the UK, as wearers can unzip them during a heat wave or layer them during freak rain showers. Make sure you have the right protective clothing for working outdoors, walking the dog or to experience that last minute holiday in the UK.
