If you work in the construction business, there’s probably no point to your reading this blog post. Why? Because you’ve probably already owned so many Carhartt pullover sweatshirts in your life that you could write a post of your own. But for all those folks out there that have yet to discover this classic piece of work-wear, we might as well go ahead and let the cat out of the bag: Carhartt pullover sweatshirts are awesome, people! Once you put one on, you’ll never want to take it off. Yes, they’re that great!

There’s one thing about winter that never changes, boys: it’s cold! Don’t make it any harder on yourself by not wearing the proper gear. Why not pick up a nice Carhartt midweight pullover sweatshirt for yourself? Made from a hefty fleece, they’re available in nine different colors, including black, vintage olive and dark brown. If you don’t like hoods, check out the crewneck version.

If you live and work in a part of the country that experiences temperatures more frigid than most, you’ll probably want to think about getting yourself a heavyweight pullover sweatshirt as well. These sweatshirts are jobsite-tested, and are made using a 13-ounce blend of cotton and polyester fleece. The jersey-lined hood and front hand-warmer pockets that Carhartt has included with this pullover sweatshirt are something of an added bonus.

Sometimes, even though it’s cold out, wearing a coat can be a burden. They can be bulky, too heavy, or not heavy enough. If you’re constantly working in a tight space, or simply don’t like wearing a coat, why not check out the Carhartt thermal-lined pullover sweatshirt? I wear this sweatshirt on the coldest of mornings up here in Minnesota. Its thermal lining is amazing at retaining heat! Honestly I don’t know what I’d do without it.

By now you’re probably ready to order your own Carhartt pullover sweatshirt, and if you’re not, you will be after reading what I’m about to write. When you buy your pullover sweatshirts from ConstructionGear.com, you’ll have the option of actually customizing it for free! Add the names of your employees, your company’s logo, your personal creed or motto, whatever you like! A few winters ago I bought a pullover for each of my crew members. There are seven of them and each sweatshirt had the name of one of the Seven Dwarfs on it. Then I fired Sleepy and Dopey – just kidding.
