Safety & Durability November 2017

Many new colors make the reflectives that are essential to this category very interesting, e.g., the pink or royal blue. Even the high-visibility fabrics introduce new qualities such as recycling-fleece. A very attractive and abrasion resistant fabric was sure to earn a 100%-Jury-Like rating: The merino and Cordura blends. The cut and the degree of abrasion resistance are important for the trousers, which is achieved by classic Cordura as well as by the very light Dyneema grades and LCPs (liquid crystal polymers).

Safety & Durability April 2017

The fabrics on this table are not just for work clothing. While they are robust and highly abrasion resistant, rather than stiff they are quite soft and even stretch. Aramid also comes in a black variant for a modest look; rip stops are lighter than before and the natural fibres are even flame-retardant. Recycled fabrics have also made inroads to workwear, with certified materials that protect the wearer.
