Wear it Well With Snickers

Wear it Well With Snickers

Beating the cold this winter could be as easy as 1, 2, 3 with the Snickers layer system.

Winter’s coming, as the good people on Game Of Thrones keep reminding us. And while you may not be battling White Walkers beyond the Wall, there’s every chance you’ll need some warmth from your workwear over the next few months. In keeping with tradition, we once again donned this season’s offerings from Snickers to find out how you can keep out the chill while staying comfortable on the job.

The three-layer approach advocated by Snickers is genuinely effective in some of the world’s harshest environments… so it really ought to work on a rainy Tuesday night in Stoke. The basic premise is this:

1. First layer: Choosing the right first layer next to your skin is key to keeping your body dry and ventilated.

2. Second layer: Airy materials make excellent second layers. Garments designed to insulate by creating a pocket of air around your body will keep you warm.

3. Third layer: You need an outer layer with reliable wind and water protection. Go for clothing that is waterproof, breathable, strong and durable.


First layer
Our first layer consisted of the Ultimate Micro Climate long-sleeved T shirt and long johns. They feature 37.5 natural active particle technology, which captures and releases moisture vapour. In short, the concept is that the clothes closest to your skin stay dry, warm and ventilated.

Second layer
Craftsmen Holster Pocket Trousers
These trousers are designed to be extremely hard-wearing and dirt repellent thanks to the use of DuraTwill fabric. Features include an advanced cut with Twisted Leg design, Cordura reinforcements for durability and a range of pockets – including holsters and a phone compartment. Essentially, they tick all the boxes for installers. And, of course, they come with compartments to house the company’s famous kneepads so you can protect your joints on site.

A.I.S 1/2 Zip Pullover
The insulation principle of the second layer couldn’t be demonstrated better than with this fleece, which features A.I.S (Active Insulation System). It’s warm. Very warm. It’s also remarkably soft and offers plenty of give when you’re on the stretch for something (which may or may not be a cuppa). It also has thumb holes in the cuff, a perennial favourite with us at PHPI, and reflective detailing on the zips.

Third layer
Craftsmen’s Winter Jacket
Designed for everyday warmth, the rip-stop winter jacket is both ergonomic and modern – it’s as useful on the terraces of your favourite underperforming football club as it is on site. The cut means you still have freedom of movement if you’re sorting out the heating somewhere freezing cold. The front is higher than the back so you can get to your trouser pockets easily and it has pockets aplenty of its own.
