Cat Got Your Back

Cat® outerwear delivers warmth, comfort and convenience.
Winter is difficult enough for those of us who have brief forays into the elements. For those who tend to spend a great deal of time braving the weather – such as those who work outdoors or have an active outdoor lifestyle – winter can be downright brutal, making staying warm of the utmost importance. Dunham’s Sports offers a wide variety of products specifically designed for the latter group, including the following three jackets from Caterpillar, a company famous for its farming and construction equipment. All three jackets offer premium construction with the highest quality materials and numerous features to make daily tasks easy to accomplish while warding off the elements.
Insulated Twill Jacket
“Keeping warm and dry is what the Insulated Twill Jacket is all about. It features a hideaway hood in the collar so you can quickly raise it when needed and tuck it away when you don’t. It also features a two-way front zip with snap closure to help keep warmth in and weather out,” said Eric Hartmann of Cat Apparel.
Available in black, the Insulated Twill Jacket offers quilted insulated lining for warmth and maximum performance. The hood can be custom-fit via a drawcord and the cuffs are adjustable, thanks to a hook and loop tab closure.
“The Insulated Twill Jacket, which is water resistant and windproof, is the do-it-all jacket for the do-it-all person,” Hartmann added.
Defender Insulated Jacket
When additional insulation is required, consider the Cat Defender Insulated Jacket.
“Our Defender Insulated Jacket is an all-winter insulated jacket built for functionality. It features a water-resistant finish, highly durable nylon ripstop fabric and active weight insulation,” Hartmann added.
To help you retain your body heat while helping keep cold, wind and wet weather out, the Defender Insulated Jacket offers a number of thoughtful features. A full front zipper with storm flap and beard guard, a stand-up collar, adjustable cuffs and an adjustable draw cord with cord locks – all work together to ensure you stay warm and comfortable.
If you work outdoors in the winter, you know how important it is to be seen in low-light conditions. The Defender Insulated Jacket has you covered with reflective Caterpillar logos on the left chest panel and back collar.
“Anyone who tends to spend a significant amount of time outdoors in the winter will truly appreciate the Defender Insulated Jacket’s quilted, insulated body. It delivers enhanced warmth and maximum protection,” Hartmann said.
Heavy Insulated Parka
For those bitterly cold winter days, check out the Cat Heavy Insulated Parka.
“We like to say that our Heavy Insulated Parka does two things exceptionally well: keep you warm and help make sure you are visible in low-light conditions, thanks to our reflective webbing across the chest and back,” Hartmann said.
Available in Army Moss, the Heavy Insulated Parka features a two-way full front zip, storm flap with storm closure, draw cords and cord locks for optimal protection against the elements.
“What I really like about our Heavy Insulated Parka is its removable, microfleece-lined hood. Zip it off when you don’t need it. Zip it on and draw the draw cord tight to keep your head warm when conditions dictate it,” Hartmann explained.
Warm, Durable and Convenient
All three jackets feature highly durable, water-resistant outer layers and 100% polyester taffeta interior lining for optimal comfort. All three also offer numerous pockets, ensuring there’s a place for everything and everything in its place.
With as many as eight pockets in the Heavy Insulated Parka, five in the Insulated Twill Jacket and four in the Defender Jacket, you won’t run out of places to put things. In the Defender Jacket for example, there are pockets for a tablet and another to store gloves or a knit hat.
Going the extra distance, the Heavy Insulated Parka features hand-warmer pockets that are lined with microfleece, an inside pocket for cellphones and two vertical pockets under the storm placket to ensure items stored there are protected from the elements.
No matter the model, nearly every pocket includes a closure system to ensure items stay securely in place. That’s indicative of the dedication Caterpillar puts into ensuring its apparel is comfortable and functional.
“The Cat brand is one of the most prolific in the construction and mining sectors and its Cat logo is iconic. We put the same level of attention to detail and commitment to the highest quality in our apparel as is put into our heavy-duty equipment,” Hartmann said.
Dunham’s Sports carries a vast array of Cat apparel. Be sure to stop by your local store and speak with a knowledgeable sales professional who can help you choose the jacket that is most ideally suited to your needs, ensuring warmth and comfort all winter long.
