If you’ve been following our blog, you know we’re taking an in-depth look at the many overalls and coveralls that we carry on our website. Our Paint Operations Anti-Static Navy Blue Coveralls are one of our lesser known products, but an especially great product for anyone in paint operations. However, you don’t have to be in paint operations and detailing to appreciate all of the features that make this garment another exceptional workwear choice from Red Kap. Let’s take a look at the fabric, the fit, and the features, of this workwear item. The order code for this specific pair is: CK44NV.

The Fabric. The CK44NV is designed to stand up to hard work and long days. The fabric is a warp knit, a hearty blend of texturized polyester and carbon suffused nylon. This garment can easily be tossed in the home wash, or follow light soil care instructions. These coveralls are a great choice for their durability, comfort, and ease of care. The fabric is one of the main contributing factors to keeping you comfortable on the job.

The Fit. This garment is designed and sized to be worn over your clothing, so these are the perfect option for keeping handy at work. They will keep you clean on the job, and confine the mess for when you’re ready to leave. The CK44NV features safety stitched main seams that not only give a good fit, but also keep the coveralls sturdy and durable. An action back gives you greater range of motion and more mobility on the job.

The Features. Like all Red Kap work wear garments, these coveralls have a few features that make them stand out. The closure is a concealed single, nickel plated, zipper with a gripper at the neck. Not only do you not have to worry about ruining a paint job with an exposed zipper, but you can ensure that any random paint drops stay off of your clothing and zipper with the gripper at the neck. The collar is a standard stand up collar, giving you a professional appearance on the job. Pockets are a necessity on the job, useful for holding all the little gadgets and tools that you need at the ready. These coveralls have two set-in front pockets, two breast pockets, two patch hip pockets, and a one-piece rule pocket. With all these pockets, you won’t ever have to worry about where to put your pencil, ruler, or tire gauge. Last, but certainly not least, this garment meets the ESD STM 2.1-1997 test methodology.

If you are in paint operations, or just looking for a good, navy blue coverall, this may be the perfect garment for you. The quantity of pockets makes it a good choice for anyone who regularly needs tools on the job, while the fabric makes it a great choice for workers looking for comfort and protection on the job. The comfortable fit of these anti-static coveralls will allow you to work hard all day, and enjoy your job without worrying about your clothing.
