Rain suits keep workers dry and comfortable in rainy or wet conditions. They may also be lined to insulate against cold weather. Rain suits come in one- and two-piece forms and secure using a zipper or hook-and-loop fastener. They are made of water-resistant materials such as PVC (polyvinyl chloride) and polyester. They are often lined with reflective stripes and colored yellow to make workers more visible and prevent accidents.
Rain overalls keep workers dry and comfortable in rainy or wet conditions. They are worn under rain coats or jackets to provide a strong barrier against water. They may be lined to provide cold weather insulation. Rain overalls are typically made of lightweight PVC (polyvinyl chloride) on polyester, which repels water. Rain pants repel water and keep the wearer dry and comfortable in rain, snow and wet environments. They typically have an elastic waist, zippered pockets and zippered or snap-closed cuffs that secure over boots. Rain pants are made of lightweight, breathable materials such as nylon and are coated with a water-resistant finish. They can come in high-visibility colors for work at dawn, dusk and night.
Rain coats, jackets and ponchos keep workers dry and comfortable in rainy or wet conditions. They may be lined to provide cold weather insulation. Rain coats and jackets come in full-length and waist-length forms. They have storm flaps to keep out water and may have inside and outside pockets. Rain coats and jackets are made of polyester, while ponchos are made of vinyl. They are often available in high visibility colors such as yellow or orange. Rain coats and jackets may have reflective stripes to keep workers safe in low-light conditions.
Waterproof boots, rain boots and overboots provide a barrier against water to keep feet dry and comfortable. They can be worn while submerged in water and will not leak or deteriorate. Rain boots are typically made of natural or synthetic rubber. Waterproof work boots are made of thick, waterproof leather and have rubber soles. Some boots are insulated for colder environments.
