Stuff We Love: Jobsite Gear

This week on Stuff We Love, Marty Dyck dives into a few great products that construction pros can wear around the jobsite. They include kneepads that stay on your knee without any straps, a couple of jackets that will keep you looking and feeling cool (or hot, depending on the weather), and a wristband that can help you keep track of screws and nails.

To find out what Marty loves about these innovative products, watch the video below. To learn more about each individual product and find out where you can buy them online, keep reading.

Strapless kneepads

Knee pads are great at protecting the front of knees, but their straps can cause some uncomfortable chafing and burning on the area behind your knees. Magnee's knee pads eliminate any of the potential problems caused by straps by getting rid of the straps themselves. Instead of using straps, Magnee knee pads are held in place through magnets- two on the outside cup of the kneepad and two on the inner pad that goes inside of your pant leg.

You can buy Magnee knee pads for around $35.

Jackets for the jobsite

Whether you need to warm up or cool off, Makita has the jacket for you. The Makita 18V LXT High Visibility Heated Jacket's battery powers five "core heat zones" that combine with a water and wind-resistant polyester shell to keep wearers comfortable while working through cold days and nights. On the flip side of that is Makita's 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless Cotton Fan Jacket, which uses two recessed fans to circulate cooling air throughout the jacket. 

Check out the heated jacket on Amazon here.

Don't lose small screws

Keep small metal objects like screws and nails on hand at all times with Klein's magnetic wristband. The wristband contains rare earth magnets for a strong magnetic hold and is made from a combination of durable material and breathable mesh so that it holds up to abuse without making your wrist too sweaty. It can also be attached to things like belts, bucket handles and tool bags.
