The hubby is outside a lot between his gardens, gathering and chopping wood and just enjoying the beauty of the forest. There are only about two months of the year where you can wake up, get dressed and not have to adjust what you put on due to the changing weather conditions. The rest of the months it is all about layering to prevent overheating. That is why I was very happy when RefrigiWear sent some pieces from their line for the hubby to review. He needs quality, outdoor clothing and RefrigiWear offers some great options.
Layering to Prevent Overheating
The first piece he tried is the Flex-Wear Top. It’s a lightweight yet still warm piece that he’s been wearing around the farm as he’s been shutting down the garden. It moves with him and let’s him shovel and rake as need be. He’s also done some wood splitting while wearing it and he was perfectly comfortable. It’s been through the wash twice and it comes through looking brand new. It’s easy to wear over or under another piece so he can add or subtract as necessary. The weather here can be below freezing when we get up and in the high 60ies by mid afternoon. It makes dressing fun.
It Doesn’t Look Like a Work Shirt
It’s a nice looking shirt that could easily be worn off of the farm as well as a sweatshirt type of layer. Here is more about it from the company:
- 92% polyester/8% elastane | Antimicrobial, anti-static finish
- 1/4-Zip collar on shirt
- 4-Way stretch, brushed inner lining
- Can also be worn as mid layer
RefrigiWear offers lines for both men and women – I am seriously down with some of the color options (pink) in the jacket section. I do love my bright colors! You can also find gloves, boots and other accessories to keep you and your family warm. The RefrigiWear Comfort Ratings Guide shows you the best options for the temperatures in your neck of the woods.
I will be back next week with another great piece from RefrigiWear. For now you can check out the RefrigiWear Blog which is full of articles on dressing correctly for the weather.
