Get dressed for safety and styled for action!

Get ready for Husqvarna's new active line of protective clothing – modern work-wear that combines protection with style. Dressed for safety, styled for action!
Traditional work-wear is usually very robust, but not so stylish. This all ends with Husqvarna’s new line of protective clothing. These are clothes designed to make you look your best when you’re working – without compromising with safety or function.

“Our new line of clothes has been energised by a more modern sporty look, tying it together with the updated Husqvarna product design. These are clothes designed for an active life style”, says designers Elin Abbevik and Rajinder Mehra.

“We have provided users of our products with protective clothing for more than 50 years. We know what demanding outdoor work takes in terms of safety and function,” says Global Marketing Communications Manager, Shellila Tan.

The category names “Classic”, “Functional” and “Technical” are all that remains of the previous wardrobe, the new one being broadened by an all-new level called “Technical Extreme”. This series is especially designed for demanding professional situations. Every garment has been completely redesigned, with new materials added to the two top levels. This results in a totally new offer from the inside and out with several improvements within both ergonomics and comfort. All clothes have been rigorously tested in the field and fulfill the required European (CE) and international standards (ISO).

These are the four new series of Husqvarna's protective clothing line:

Classic
Work-wear with a clean and modern design and the well-known high-quality Husqvarna feel. Provides comfort with high quality polyester/cotton twill textile. Offers improved ventilation with added zippers.

Functional
