Brookes Basks In Heatwave But Urges Caution With The RASH Guide From Outdoor Look

As we begin to enter the primary summer months, many across the UK will ensuring as much free time as possible is spent outside in the sun. Although obvious enjoyment is had across a range of outside leisure activities such as hiking, camping and fishing, unfortunately each summer sees a new wave of casualties who have become victims to heat exhaustion and heat stroke.

As emergency services will be called to hiking trails and walking hot spots across the country, Ian Brookes – founder of leading discount outdoor clothing specialists outdoorlook.co.uk – has once again laid the spotlight on the brand’s summer safety guide – RASH.

Established last summer, the guide brings to attention a 4-point-plan which can easily be understood by adults and children alike this summer;

REST – Remember to rest at regular intervals if your activity is in full glare of the summer sun. Take shade under a tree and should you continue your activity, do so at a slower pace, keeping a watchful eye over whoever is suffering

AIR – Ensure any tight clothing is loosened and temporarily remove any clothing items you can. Should there be a breeze, be sure to stand against it as this will help draw heat away from your body and therefore cool down quicker.

SIP – Make sure you and your party drink at regular intervals. Setting regular times– every 15 mins for example – will ensure you stay hydrated. Remember, as tempting as it maybe to gulp a drink off, it is important to sip slowly so your stomach is given enough time to process the fluids efficiently.

Help – If whoever is ill continues to show symptoms of a sufficient recovery, do not delay in calling for additional help. Heat exhaustion subsequently lead to heat-stroke which can be fatal in extreme cases.

“It is an accessible guide to some basic principles when occasionally get overlooked,” explained Brookes.

“It can happen from time to time when you are outside enjoying the good life, so it is important we try and remember some core ways of staying safe and free from health risks such as heat stroke and heat exhaustion.”

Being the founder of the UK’s leading discount outdoor clothing specialists, Brookes also highlighted that having suitable outdoor clothing can also be an effective measure at staying safe in the sun.

Wrap Up Warm With Work Wear This Winter, Says Brookes

October has arrived, and it is all a bit too sudden. Just 5 weeks ago the weather was warm and bright and t shirts and shorts were in full flow. Now, with just a couple of weeks until the days get ‘shorter’ with the clocks going back, it is time to prepare for darker nights and colder mornings; you and your workers are going to need to stay warm.

Luckily, online workwear retailer eBrookes.co.uk is here to help. Having recently celebrated 10 years in trading, founder Ian Brookes has kitted out a few workforces during his tenure, and with the winters seemingly getting colder each year, he is not expected the importance of being properly kitted out to be diminished.

“September is definitely the cross-over month from warm to cold. I have some staff come into the office in shirts and some in thick fleeces. But when October arrives, you definitely notice a difference, so it is important you are fully prepared.”

“Last year we had the coldest winter for 31 years, and this year it is expected to be a similar story. With Brookes however, you can keep warm and your company identity, by making use of our personalised hoodie service.”

Brookes personalised clothing service stretches across many of their other products too, with established workwear brands such as CAT, Carhartt, and Dickies all available at trade prices.

“Just because the weather is colder no longer means your staff have to compromise on a smart professional look. Embroidered body warmers are a perfect fashionable way to keep warm if working outside, and they look smart too,” added Brookes.

The North Face Nuptse Will Keep You Warm With Style, Says Webtogs

As the nights draw in and the temperature drops it’s time to turn to the comfort and warmth of down and Webtogs’ regular best seller, the classic North Face Nuptse jacket. A classic for a reason, the North Face Nuptse has the style to look good on or off the mountain but doesn’t compromise when it comes to performance.

Using high lofting 700 Fill Power down and a sewn through construction the Nuptse delivers the warmth needed for cold dry days or sitting round an evening camp fire while compressing small enough to fit in any pack. Designed to be versatile the Nuptse is zip-in compatible offering the option to add extra insulation with a fleece from the extensive North Face range.

The North Face Nuptse jacket uses a mix of miniripstop and plain weave 50D fabrics with double layer taffeta on the shoulders for added protection when carrying a pack. On the inside a soft touch lining gives a reassuringly gentle and warm feel from first touch even on T shirted arms. With a straight cut the Nuptse goes on easily over mid and base layers without looking excessively bulky but is equally at home in the high street on a cold winter day. With a choice of five colours for men and four for women Webtogs offer one of the all-time classics in a range fit for every purpose and occasion.

The North Face Nuptse is designed for comfort with an easily adjustable hem cinchcord and nice chunky Velcro cuff adjusters to keep the draughts out whilst a pair of zipped pockets provide refuge for hands when the wind starts to blow. Finished with a DWR coating the Nuptse can shrug off rain and snow long enough for the wearer to find shelter but can be quickly compressed into its own internal pockets if the need arises. For real emergencies the Nuptse also has a taffeta hood that can be pulled up for added wind protection.
