  • Winter is here, but are you ready for the rain?
  • BAD Workwear have a range of waterproof jackets that will help you fight off the torrential rain.
  • Read on to learn more about exactly what jackets can provide you with the most protection and comfort though out the winter season.

As we head into winter in Australia there is no doubt that there is going to be rain. Rain on your worksite might interrupt your day slightly. However, if you aren’t wearing the right workwear for the weather, then your day can easily be ruined. No tradie ever wants to be drenched and damp all throughout their workday.

So, what you will need is a waterproof jacket. However, will this jacket protect you from the very heavy or torrential downpours we often see during winter? While there are many waterproof jackets on the market, only the right ones will be able to protect you from torrential rain. 

What you will be looking for in your waterproof workwear jacket is functionality. You should be looking for a jacket that is not only waterproof, but also is comfortable and doesn’t obstruct your movement so you can continue working. You will also want the material to be breathable enough so that you aren’t uncomfortable, but also something that can also keep the rain away.

If this is what you are looking for, then look no further than BAD Workwear. BAD workwear’s impressive line-up of waterproof jackets will keep you dry from the rain, no matter if it is torrential or not. They have selections that are not only dry, comfortable, breathable and functional, but highly visible to keep you safe in low visibility environments that can sometimes be created by storms.  So, allow us to elaborate on what BAD Workwear can offer.



Firstly, we have the BAD® HI-VIS DOWN PUFFER JACKET. This jacket is a lightweight, compressible down jacket, styled with zipped pockets. Reinforced with nylon panelling for durability and reflective front-back logo for visibility, this option will keep you warm and free of excess sweat or odour thanks to its antibacterial moisture wicking abilities. This jacket comes in three colours: two high-vis options, orange and yellow, plus a regular black as well.

Next we have the BAD WATERPROOF HI-VIS SOFTSHELL JACKET WITH 3M TAPE. This option is waterproof, windproof and breathable to keep you warm and dry from the rain. It has an internal microfleece layer bonded to the external waterproof layer. Additionally, to keep you safe, there is a 3M brand of reflective tape around the jacket's chest and arms that are also waterproof and improve visibility on site.

While these will keep the top half warm and dry, if you really need to work right in the middle of a torrential downpour, then look no further than BAD's WATERPROOF WET WEATHER SET. This pair of a jacket and pants is a waterproof set that can protect you from anything. With two hi-vis orange and yellow colours, and a navy, you can decide what is best for your worksite. They offer some of the best functionality if you need to be working directly in the bad weather, rather than around it.

Your choice will always depend on your worksite and what suits your comfort and style the most. If you are in need of a waterproof jacket before winter gets bad, then look no further than BAD Workwear. BAD offers the highest quality workwear on the market, from the best brands worldwide.
