Timberland Pro Workwear Review
Timberland Pro, famous for their footwear also produces a line of workwear that adheres to the same standards. “Equip people to make a difference in the world” is the stated goal of Timberland. They achieve this by producing superb goods and making an effort to improve the neighborhoods where we live and work. Stepping outside in any kind of weather was a problem Timberland was born to solve.
Timberland – The Company
The first waterproof boots, known as “Timberland,” were created in 1973. They were tough, well-made, and weatherproof thanks to an avant-garde injection molding method that was novel to the footwear industry. In the footwear market, these high-end “yellow” boots have raised the bar for waterproof performance. They gained popularity among outdoor enthusiasts who required protection in all weather, skilled trade workers who required durable, trustworthy equipment, and numerous more who merely desired a stylish pair of boots. Our brand was founded on these boots. They were so revolutionary that we decided to rename the entire business in 1978.
When Timberland designs a new boot, shoe, jacket, pair of glasses, or even a T-shirt, it not only has to look great, but they also need to consider its impact on nature. Ever since introducing the original waterproof boots, the company remained focused on making innovative products that get people outdoors, are made with environmentally-conscious materials, and are crafted to last for years. Aiming to not only minimize our impact on the environment through the products we make but to actually help restore the land we depend on. In 2018 Timberland planted its ten millionth tree which was a goal they set out to reach in 2020, 2 years ahead of schedule.
Men’s Reaxion Quarter-Zip Fleece Jacket
The Reaxion 1/4 zip fleece jacket is perfect for spring and fall wear. It has a sleek look and an athletic fit and is extremely comfortable. This 1/4 zip is great for the job site with great stretch and mobility, but I find myself reaching it for casual nights out with the family.
The chest pocket is a nice feature for securing your cell phone if you desire. It is canted at a slight angle making zipper the pocket easier. Zippering straight up and down can cause a pulling on the shirt.

- Flat-lock seam construction for friction less seams

My go-to shirt on the job site is the Timberland Wicking Hoodie. The breathable, highly stretchable recycled polyester used to create the lightweight hoodie increases mobility. It is a wicking cloth that dries quickly. Even in hot temperatures, they are light enough to wear all day. Additionally, they provide sun protection. In order to minimize the passage of ultraviolet radiation and protect your skin from sun damage, the material used has been treated to have an Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) of 50.
