Grundens USA Adds Weather Watch ANSI-Certified Rainwear to its Gage Technical Gear Line

Hi-Visibility Apparel Engineered to Help Hard-Working Men and Women Stay Dry, Stay Comfortable and Stay Safe on the Job

Grundens USA—a company best known for protecting Bering Sea crab fishermen on the high seas—has introduced a new family of ANSI-certified rainwear products specially designed to keep police officers, highway crews, utility workers, EMTs, forestry workers and others safe, dry and comfortable as they perform dangerous jobs on land.

Part of Grundens’ new Gage Technical Gear line, this new Weather Watch rainwear is ANSI/ISEA 107-2010 Certified, meeting the latest standards for High-Visibility Safety Apparel. These standards, set forth by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and International Safety Equipment Association (ISEA), provide a uniform, authoritative guide for the design, performance specifications and use of high-visibility and reflective apparel. Weather Watch ANSI-Certified jackets, pants and bibs meet these requirements with their bold Hi-Vis Yellow material and strategically placed reflective accents. More importantly, they meet Grundens’ high standards for performance and durability.

“There are plenty of hi-vis rainwear products on the market — but none backed by the Grundens name and professional-grade reputation,” said Mike Jackson, a former Bering Sea crab fisherman and Grundens USA President. “Our clothing has always been designed for the toughest customers, working in the harshest environments on the planet. It’s our job to keep them comfortable and provide products that last. Our new line of ANSI-Certified rainwear was developed in this same tradition,” Jackson added.

These specialized garments are tailored from rugged 300-denier Polyester fabric with an Oxford weave for optimum comfort and durability. Designed for maximum breathability, ANSI-Certified Weather Watch jackets, pants and bibs keep workers from becoming sweaty and overheated during strenuous activities. A full range of sizes from XS to 5XL ensures a comfortable, proper fit for every body.

Weather Watch Bibs feature fully taped seams with adjustable suspenders and leg cuffs for a snug, watertight fit. An inside zippered chest pocket and right leg cargo pocket provide handy storage for personal and work items. Workers who prefer traditional pants will enjoy the Weather Watch Waist Pant, featuring a sturdy adjustable elastic belt, Velcro cinch ankles and generous leg zippers that make it easy to put these pants on and take them off.

Weather Watch Hooded Jackets feature drop tail adjustable hems, full-sized adjustable hoods (to accommodate headwear), and two large zippered pockets. Double storm flaps and fully taped seams seal out rain, spray and moisture under the toughest conditions.

MSRP for the Weather Watch ANSI-Certified Jacket is $75. The Bib Pants retail for $85; while the Waist Pants carry a maximum retail price of $71.
