Milwaukee Improves Durability, Mobility, and Performance of Work Gear for the Trades with New Jackets, Bibs, and Sweatshirt


In Fall 2017, Milwaukee Tool will launch a full line of Work Gear designed to outperform and outlast traditional workwear in demanding jobsite environments and extreme weather. Utilizing GRIDIRON™ Ripstop Polyester to deliver superior durability without the bulk of cotton duck, the GRIDIRON™ Hooded Jacket, GRIDIRON™ Traditional Jacket, and GRIDIRON™ Zip-to-Thigh Bib Overalls redefine expectations of jobsite tough, insulated work wear. The NO DAYS OFF™ Hooded Sweatshirt combines weather resistance with comfort to improve upon the most common layering piece used by tradesmen.

The Milwaukee® GRIDIRON™ Hooded Jacket and Traditional Jacket are built for tradesmen who need insulated Work Gear that survives the jobsite without adding bulk and restricting their ability to work. GRIDIRON™ Ripstop Polyester reinforces high-wear areas and is 3X more durable than 12oz cotton duck against abrasion and tearing while accounting for 25% less bulk. Large riveted and reinforced utility pockets and a tarnish-resistant metal zipper provide additional durable enhancements to prevent common product failures. Engineered to maximize productivity, the jackets are made to move with FREEFLEX™ Stretch Panels across the back, articulated elbows, and lighter materials in areas that require mobility. NO DAYS OFF™ Weather Protection provides wind and water resistance, and combines with high loft insulation to combat the most extreme weather conditions.

Like the jackets, the new Milwaukee® GRIDIRON™ Zip-to-Thigh Bib Overalls focus on improving durability to extend product life, maximizing mobility, and providing warmth and weather protection without the bulk of cotton duck work wear. GRIDIRON™ Ripstop Polyester reinforces knee panels, cuffs, and pockets to protect the most common places where bibs rip and tear. Additionally, durable metal buckles and zippers stand up to daily abuse in jobsite conditions. A FREEFLEX™ Stretch Zone across the inner legs combined with lighter, more durable materials maximize mobility and reduce bulk to improve comfort and productivity. An adjustable waist provides up to 2” of flexibility for more comfortable layering on cold days. For added utility, a chest pocket gives users quick access to commonly used items and secure zipper storage for electronic devices and valuables.

Redefining the most common layering item on the jobsite, the NO DAYS OFF™ Hooded Sweatshirt combines wind and water resistance with a comfortable fleece lining to provide all season versatility. The addition of a fitted hood designed to be worn under a hard hat, extended collar to protect the neck, and interior storm flap provide enhanced protection from the elements. Durable polyester body material and double layer reinforcement of pocket edges and forearms extend product life when used in demanding jobsite environments. Built for all conditions, the NO DAYS OFF™ Hooded Sweatshirt fights the rain when worn as an outer shell, and provides wind protection and warmth when used as a versatile layer in extreme cold.
