Walls Outdoor Goods Expands Kevlar® and Vintage Workwear Collections
FORT WORTH, Texas (June 22, 2016) — Walls Outdoor Goods, a leader in durable outdoor workwear, expands the options in its Kevlar® and Vintage collections, with the introduction of innovative new styles for fall 2016. The new pieces are some of the toughest, most dependable apparel available for working in demanding conditions.
“The new workwear is built for guys who work hard and play hard outdoors,” says Alan Burks, Walls Brands director of marketing. “By utilizing the strength of Kevlar and the comfort of stonewashed cotton duck, we are designing outerwear that is comfortable and that will lead the category in quality, durability and style.”
Walls remains the exclusive brand of insulated, cold-weather workwear with Kevlar®, which offers strength and durability while remaining lightweight and flexible. The fall 2016 Kevlar workwear collection adds the new Kevlar Shirt Jack and Kevlar Hooded Parka to its already robust line of jackets, vests and bibs. The line features 10-ounce brushed duck and Kevlar blend and a double needle diamond-quilt lining with six ounces of synthetic insulation.
Three new styles join the Vintage Walls collection including the new Vintage Duck Pant that feels broken in from the first wear and features a cell phone pocket, hammer loop and utility belt loop. The new Vintage Barn Coat offers a long cut for extra warmth and side vent with double snap closure for a full range of motion. The Vintage Twill Jacket features a trim cut and western-style back yoke for a stylish and functional design. Every style in the Vintage collection starts with premium 10-ounce duck fabric that is sanded and stonewashed, creating a weathered, lived-in look. A buffalo print lining creates a vintage look while adding warmth and comfort.
