Comfortable, practical, good quality jacket
Saturday, 28 July 2018  |  Stuart

Going on the low price, I was skeptical as to the quality of this jacket when I ordered. I'm no longer skeptical. It's a great jacket & I'd buy another in a hearbeat.
It fits perfectly with none of the usual tight or loose spots that hinder welders & machinists.
It keeps out chilly draughts but doesn't boil you to death.
The fabric is easy on bare skin & wont make you itch.
It's light enough that it doesn't give you that oppressive "PPE feeling" but heavy enough that you know you're suitably protected.

The service from BKSafetyWear was second to none - my first colour of choice was out of stock & I was very quickly offered the option of a refund, a second choice or to wait on back-order. Dispatch & delivery was fast & efficient.

10/10 all round.
100% recommend Portwest gear.
100% trust BKSafetyWear to supply my small business any day!
Very many thanks!
