Military Coveralls

Benefits of Military Coveralls

The cardinal rule for any job is that you should always dress for the job. And like every profession, military personnel are also required to maintain a certain dress code. In particular, they should ideally own a good pair of coveralls. Unlike overalls, coveralls provide full coverage, excluding the head and the hands, of course, thus protecting the wearers from the harsh elements around them. That makes them incredibly popular in dense and intense environments. But protection isn’t the only benefit military coveralls offer. There is a lot to gain from wearing this seemingly simplistic suit, and in this article, we are going to delve into some of them. Without further ado, let’s jump in.



Safety is probably the most popular reason why military officials wear coveralls. The fact is, being in the military can be a dangerous job. While there are safety policies, accidents can occur. Military coveralls offer the wearers an additional layer of protection. Our CWU 27/P Nomex Flight Suit, for instance, is made of a flame-resistant Nomex fabric. Therefore, it can withstand heat and resist burning, safeguarding the wearer from overheating or getting burns during high-temperature situations.



Military officials are often exposed to challenging environments that can put them at risk of frostbite, hypothermia, and more. The best coveralls are designed to avoid just that. They come insulated to keep the skin dry, warm, and comfortable. Interestingly, military coveralls are also loose-fitting and breathable to offer the wearer free range of motion while also keeping them cool.  


Plenty of storage

It’s important to have all your essential tools within reach. Military coveralls come with several pockets that allow just that. Take the CWU 27/P Nomex suit, for instance. It has at least six primary pockets plus additional accessory pockets. This is more than enough space to store the little essentials that you don’t need to put in your carry-on. 


To provide ultimate protection, a coverall should ideally be durable. The U.S military coveralls are made of ICVC, a high-quality material that is safe, flame-resistant, comfortable, and breathable. It is also fade resistant as it is solution-dyed.



Coveralls come in a range of colors. Some are bright, others not so much. Bright orange coveralls are usually ideal for those at risk of physical hazards. Case in point, construction workers and highway workers. Comparatively, military officials opt for coveralls with lower visibility. That said, the standard color scheme for military coveralls in the U.S. is Universal Camouflage Pattern (UCP). It allows military troops to blend in with the terrain, camouflaging them from the enemy.
