This 300-denier oxford polyester safety wear has been lined with polyurethane (PU) to provide water-resistance. All seams have been taped and heat-sealed.

It is recommended for any worker surrounded by motorized vehicles: school crossing guards, drivers, transport workers, etc.

Reflective stripes and visibility:
These water-resistant pants have been provided with silver retroreflective stripes of each 50 mm (2 in.) in width. These pants have two horizontal stripes around the ankles.

Fluorescent yellow (or that safety greenish yellow) is quite visible during daylight and in poor natural light conditions, e.g. at dawn or dusk. In most cases, this yellow ensures a high contrast with most backgrounds. Since bright yellow is lighter than orange, it can be perceived more easily at night, yet reflective stripes will always be best in the dark.

Silver retroreflective stripes are the most visible there is in poor lighting conditions, be it natural or artificial, since they reflect the light toward the light source (flashlight, automotive headlamp, etc.). Therefore, they offer greater protection at dawn, dusk, and night. Reflective bands won’t, however, increase visibility during daylight.

Design:
These polyester pants offer some resistance to abrasion. The wide style of these pants allows one to easily wear warm clothes underneath while still allowing a good airflow. These pants feature a waist drawstring for a quick fit; they also feature a zipper fly opening. Two lateral flap-protected zipper-sealed pockets have been added. One interesting feature is that the pockets are accessible from the inside of the coat thanks to the inner zippers. The manufacturer recommends leaving those pockets open in order to clear up the warmth from the pants. These pants feature boot access zippers, hook and loop, as well as press studs to adjust the ankles in order to allow a tight fit with work boots or winter wear. These pants are not flame-resistant.

These PU lined oxford polyester pants are said to be manufactured with a 300-deniers yarn; in layman’s terms, it is a medium-weight protective wear which is lightweight enough to offer comfort but is heavyweight enough to offer an effective protection. By definition, 300 deniers refer to the weight in grams of 9,000 m of the yarn used to make these pants, that is, 300 deniers equal 300 g. The manufacturer is unable to provide the polyurethane liner’s thickness.

Regarding the oxford term, it refers to the type of woven fabric. The oxford cloth is widely used in the industry, namely to manufacture dress shirts, coats, bags, etc. The oxford weaving consists in interlacing a warp thread (horizontal line) and a weft thread (vertical line) to create the oxford’s infamous basket weave structure.

Water-resistance:
Polyurethane-lined waterproof safety wear is usually worn by workers who may be exposed to remote risks of chemical splashes. PU is lightweight and porous; it’s thus ideal to manufacture light and breathable workwear. The manufacturer is unable to provide information on these rain pants resistance to hydrostatic pressure. Upon examination and comparison to similar products, we assume that they can withhold a hydrostatic pressure of about 5,000 mm, i.e. they can withstand the pressure of a 5 m water column. A waterproof rating is granted when a material has been tested under the pressure of a cylinder filled with water, in this case, 5 m high of water. This height defines the limit at which the material stops being resistant and water starts passing through. PU is lightweight and porous; it’s thus ideal to manufacture light and breathable workwear. Yet, during heavy rains and windstorms, PU tends to get waterlogged and lose all its water-resistant property. Once overloaded, polyurethane lets water leach into the rainwear under any pressure, e.g. by leaning on something or bending over.

Maintenance:
These pants should always be machine-washed in a delicate setting with cold or lukewarm water, and a gentle soap. Never use bleaching agents or fabric softeners on these pants. They should also be air-dried in a sheltered spot out of direct sunlight. Never tumble dry, iron or dry clean this rainwear.
