Gloves In A Bottle. This moisturizer bonds with the outer layer of skin to become “invisible gloves” that keep moisture-robbing irritants out while helping to retain the skin's own natural moisture, the maker says. The lotion is virtually undetectable once dry, lasts four hours or more, and comes off naturally with exfoliated skin cells. 800.600.1881. www.glovesinabottle.com.
Bilsom. The company recently redesigned the Leightning noise-blocking ear-muffs to combine maximum protection and contemporary design with modern stereo headset-styled earcups. The sturdy steel headband is padded with foam for comfort, and telescoping height adjustment ensures individual fit. 800.327.1110. www.bilsom.com.
GuardDog. The Clip-On Belt Watch's oversized stainless steel clip attaches to heavy-duty or regular belts, ensuring the watch's safety as well as the wearer's comfort. The front of the watch faces the belt, so the crystal is never in danger of being knocked or hit. The watch itself flips out of its Santo-prene case for viewing. Luminous hands are easy to read in low light, and the watch comes with a one-year limited warranty. 800.571.4119. www.guarddogwatches.com.
Michelin. The company takes their signature tire tread technology to the jobsite in this line of professional working footwear. Bidirectional treads provide traction and slip-resistance. The “Better Than Air” support system creates a built-in orthotic for the footbed, and extended coverage provides a buffer between the end of the steel safety toe and the rest of the shoe. 781.826.6801. www.michelinfootwear.com.
Gorgonz. The patented Exhale Heating System in the Pro 600 Exhale glove makes warming up cold hands easy. Just breathe into the “port” on the top of the glove and an air chamber delivers the warmth to your fingers. Thinsulate insulation and flexible fingers add comfort and dexterity, the maker says. 877.725.4386. www.gorgonz.com.
DeWalt. The Pro Series DPG56 safety glasses offer wraparound styling and a sleek look. Side vents on the frame allow airflow, and the polycarbonate lenses provide 99.9% UV protection. The glasses meet or exceed ANSI Z87.1+, CE, CSA, and AS/NS standards. 800.433.9258. www.dewalt.com.
Timberland. The Titan Oxford is the latest work boot from the company's PRO line. It boasts waterproof leather, titanium steel toes, and temperature control technology. The PowerFit Comfort System's zoned insoles and flex grooves allow greater range of motion, support, and cushioning. 800.258.0855. www .timberland.com.
Wolverine. Gore-Tex waterproof lining keeps feet dry inside the Buchanan work boot. Full-grain leather uppers and DuraShocks slip-resistant out-soles provide protection on rugged jobsites. Choose from 6-inch (shown) or 8-inch boot, steel-toe or soft toe, in black or brown. 800.545.2425. www .wolverinebootsandshoes.com.
CAT Footwear. Combining the durability of a work boot with the feel of an athletic shoe, the iTechnology series features a hard-wearing outsole and Goodyear welt construction for strength and resilience combined with an athletic heel cradle for all-day comfort and a molded polyurethane footbed for additional shock absorption. 800.545.2425. www.catfootwear.com.
Duluth Trading Co. Designed just like cargo pants, Souped Up Sweatpants are ideal to work in, says the maker. Compartments include a cell phone pocket, a cargo pocket for tools or a wallet, two rear zip pockets, and two utility straps. The knees have a dual fabric panel for extra durability. Best of all (for the homeowners, at least), a builtin belt keeps the waist in place. The cotton-poly material is almost 50% heavier than that of regular sweat-pants. 800.505.8888. www.duluthtrading.com.
