Summer is well and truly gone, and as we watch the leaves change and feel the autumn chill set in we know it’s time to start reaching for that extra layer in the morning. Although, we all know that when it comes to Irish weather we don’t need to wait for winter time to start wearing jackets!
Choosing the right jacket can be hard and there are so many things to think about, like fabric, style, colour and price. But don't worry, we're here to help! We know hospitals, clinics and doctor offices can be freezing cold so the perfect jacket is one that keeps you warm yet is easy to move around in. If the fabric is too stiff or the jacket too bulky, then it won’t be suitable for nurses or other healthcare professionals to wear throughout work. Especially if your role involves a lot of movement!
If you’re working in a chilly environment, you might need to wear something warm over your uniform all day long. This can be tricky if a jacket isn’t already a part of your work uniform, as some employers might not allow you to wear regular clothing. They have gone to the effort of choosing a professional looking uniform that is recognisable to patients, goes with the clinic’s branding and wearing a casual jacket just might not look the part. Finding a jacket that matches your scrubs in terms of style as well as comfort will help you keep a professional look. Try choosing neutral or darker solid colours rather than prints and in a shape that fits you well.
We have various styles of jackets available: Light and stretchy jackets, fleece lined, sleeveless, with or without a collar, multiple pockets. Most importantly, they all look sleek and professional while keeping you warm and comfortable throughout long nights and cool mid-season days.
Our jackets are made of soft, quality fabric, ensuring unbeatable comfort and very good protection against the cold. They are all machine washable and dry relatively fast, making them super easy to care for.

The colder autumn and winter months always bring added layers of clothing which can make us feel less stylish. The great thing about the modern jackets made with healthcare professionals in mind is that instead of adding to the bulk, there are plenty of options that can keep you warm without sacrificing style and movement.
