Top Performing Industrial Winter P.P.E. Gear

No matter what winter brings, be it blizzard conditions, frigid temperatures, ice storms, heavy winds and rains – this change in working conditions can be challenging on your team. Are you prepared to ensure your staff can tackle the season ahead? Now is the best time to start thinking about winter PPE so you can stay in front of it.

Keeping your team warm, dry and protected against cold conditions is easy! MDS has an extensive line-up of low-priced high-performing industrial cold weather gear designed with personal safety and performance in mind. Here are a few of our top picks.


The 364-1195 Exo Dual-Layer 3-in-1 Balaclava uses innovative fabric technology that harnesses heat from the sun’s powerful solar rays, enhancing the warming effect of the material up to 15° F (10°C). Wear as a ski mask, neck gaiter or a full face mask, it can be worn with the outer layer down exposing the breathable mesh layer when less insulation is required.

Because an exposed head can lose 50% of the body’s heat in extreme cold weather, wintertime headwear is critical to personal comfort and safety. The winter beanies from the Superior Glove® company are available in black, hi-viz orange and hi-viz green colors. Both styles are constructed with a double layer stretch acrylic material designed for maximum comfort and all-day wear, protecting the head and ears from the cold weather elements.
