A quality men’s hardshell jacket is a great way to prevent foul weather from holding you back during outdoor response calls and patrols. Blauer has been making public safety apparel and working with those who serve for more than 80 years. During that time, we have seen the brutal elements they often must endure. Hardshell jackets have a tough outer layer that forms an impenetrable barrier against water, wind and cold that’s trying to get in. They’ll also protect your equipment and uniform from getting damaged or wrinkled. Wearing them alone or as part of the Blauer Outerwear System will prepare you for winter shifts and emergency calls when the weather won’t cooperate.
Blauer has men’s response parkas, cruiser jackets, ike-length duty jackets and other outerwear to shield you from harsh weather. We have developed a number of fabric and construction technologies to make hardshell jackets comfortable while adding even more practical functions. Many jackets are made using three-layer GORE-TEX® fabric that is breathable so you won’t get overheated or sweaty. This fabric is used by the U.S. military in their apparel and we are proud to offer it in our public safety jackets. B.WARM® hardshell jackets have extra insulation for when the days get really cold while B.BRIGHT® jackets have UV-activated pigments and retroreflective piping to improve visibility.
Hardshell jackets for men are known for being bulky or stiff, but Blauer’s innovations have made them work as smoothly as our uniforms. Dropped shoulders, adjustable cuffs and articulated elbows all improve the fit and mobility of these jackets. Other useful features such as storm flaps, abrasion-resistant finishes, inner security pockets and equipment access openings mean you’ll have everything you need to serve and protect in conditions that would make others stay inside. Most of our developments have come from responder feedback about what they encounter and what will aid them in overcoming the elements. Putting that feedback to use is a big reason why our hardshell jackets are trusted everywhere.
