A work jacket or coat is an item of clothing worn on the upper body. The garment is typically waist or mid length with sleeves that fastens up at the front with a zip or buttons. Workwear coats and jackets are designed to keep you warm and dry to protect you from the elements especially if you work outdoors. Jackets also provide protection in environments where PPE (personal protection equipment) is a requirement.
