BREATHABLE WINDPROOF WATERPROOF WATER REPELLENT MOISTURE WICKING 614 Breathable Insulating Breathability in waterproof/water-repellent clothing is especially important when you sweat while working in cold environments. If you do not get rid of the moisture, there is a great risk that your wet clothes will get cold and you will freeze as a result. This symbol on clothing indicates that you have a product that helps to keep you warm when the surroundings are cool. INSULATING Windproof Stain resistant When your clothing is windproof you hold heat more easily. Choose products with this symbol when you don’t want the wind to bother your everyday comfort. Your fluorescent clothing keeps you visible, but it must be kept clean to be seen, which is not always easy. MASCOT helps to keep your clothing dirt free with a stain-resistant treatment. When your clothes are stain resistant, you will be more visible and therefore safer for longer. DIRT RESISTANT Waterproof Quick drying 100%. This symbol is your assurance that MASCOT does not allow as much as a single drop of water penetration. Zippers are waterproof and seams are taped on the back. An important characteristic of moisture wicking clothing is that it also dries quickly. If moisture is allowed to remain on the fabric there is the danger that it could freeze and subsequently lead to hypothermia. With the combination of moisture-wicking technology and quick-drying material, you are assured of maximum comfort regardless of your activity level. QUICK DRYING Water-repellent Light Weight Clothes carrying this symbol are made of waterproof material. However, it is not possible to put tape on the back of the seams of certain fabrics. Therefore the product cannot be classified as being entirely 100% waterproof, just water-repellent. The symbol indicates that the workwear is light in weight. The garment remains highly durable. You should choose products carrying this symbol if you want durable workwear in a light fabric, for example if you work indoors and/or in hot environments. LIGHTWEIGHT Moisture wicking Ergonomic fit Most fabrics can absorb sweat, but some materials can do more than that – particularly, transport sweat away from your body so you do not experience wet and cold to your innermost layer. A moisture-wicking innermost layer is crucial. All of MASCOT’s clothes are, of course, designed for movement. But if you have a particular need for clothing that supports, assists and just plain fits, in all body positions, then go for the ergonomic fit. ERGONOMIC FIT
