Early starts and working outdoors through every season makes a warm layer a farmwear essential. Layer up to level-up your comfort and, with it, your productivity.

Farmer Jackets and Fleeces: Keeping You Warm While You Work

The key to working full days outdoors is to layer up for every weather eventuality. A warm layer is a farm workwear essential and should contain a few key items to match the conditions. From fleece-lined farmer jackets to fleece jackets and gilets, fill your farm wardrobe with fleecy farm favourites for warmth. You're just getting warmed up with jackets and gilets. Nothing beats knitwear for warmth. Add a beanie or scarf for extra snugness. Wool is right at home - and works well to keep you warm at work - on the farm.

Top 3 Farm Workwear Warmers

  1. Farmer Jackets: Farmers have jackets for every occasion - from heavy overcoats for those particularly frosty days to lightweight jackets for when the crisp chill in the air needs an extra layer. A shirt jacket is a top choice for every farmer to have in his warm workwear arsenal. Combining fabric features with fleece, these jackets get to work to keep you warm - and protected from UV rays and insects.
  2. Farm Fleeces: A fleece is a long-standing farm favourite for warmth. Whether worn under big, heavy jackets or on its own, this is a warm workwear essential. Opting for a zipped fleece jacket gives you the option of unzipping as the temperature rises or zipping right up to the chin to fight the cold. Alternatively, a fleece gilet or bodywarmer are the sleeve-free fleece option.
  3. Compact and Packable Waterproofs: Be prepared for any change in the weather by keeping a compact, packable waterproof layer on hand in your vehicle, in your desk drawer, in your workshop, or in your work bag - or all of the above. The downside to a downpour is not being prepared - and things always look up with waterproofs.

Farm Warm Layer Essentials: Farmer Jackets, Fleeces, and Knitwear

  • Mix Warmth with Outdoor Workwear Features: Clever layering means garments that offer both warmth and the features of an outdoor shirt in one. By combining microfleece with anti-insect technical fabric, for instance, you get all the benefits of insect and sun defence, moisture wicking and antimicrobial properties, with fleece for warmth.
  • Work it in Wool: Don't forget to accessorise for extra warmth where it matters. Wool is a wonderful, warm, breathable, naturally anti-microbial material. A woollen beanie or scarf is the simple, stylish way to keep warm in every type of chill.

The Trick to Layering for Farmers

  • Let's take it from the top: The best farm clothing strategy is to dress in layers. A long-sleeved farm shirt should be the starting point for every farm outfit. Choose technical fabrics for extra farm features for comfort and protection that work throughout the day. Shop Men's Farm Shirts, Women's Farm Shirts, and Children's Farm Shirts.
  • Top to bottom approachstrong>: Pairing a long-sleeved farm shirt with a lightweight fleece jacket or gilet or farm jacket is a vital step in keeping warm when it gets chilly. In the same way that you dress your upper body in layers - allowing you to remove layers as conditions change - zip-off farm trousers are a trick to smart farm dressing. Convert longs into shorts by unzipping the troouser legs at the knees. Shop Women's Farm Trousers, Men's Farm Trousers, and Children's Farm Trousers.
