With a collection of tools sliding around the truck, our first choice is always the multitool. Same goes with the Better Sweater® when we head out the door. Built of 10-oz polyester with a sweater-knit exterior and a warm fleece interior, this easy-wearing, moisture-wicking, bulk-free pullover is dyed with a low-impact process that significantly reduces the use of dyestuffs, energy and water compared to conventional dyeing methods. Details include a stand-up collar with a zipper garage for next-to-skin softness, raglan sleeves for unlimited mobility and back seams that create a classic silhouette. Micropolyester jersey trim at the collar, cuffs and hem wick sweat, and a vertical chest pocket closes with a zipper to secure keys and cash. Fabric is bluesign® approved.
