The original Arbortec Breathedry® Smock

Our original Breathedry® smock was originally launched in 2018, this breathable jacket comes with an array of features that was created with the arborist in mind. This smock conforms to the EN343 Class 3 standard and incorporates an increased back length to shed water. The high visibility orange and yellow conforms to EN ISO 20471 Class 3, the high visibility orange jacket also conforms to GO/RT 3279 (RIS-3279-TOM).

There is a large adjustable hood in the zip-off/storeable collar that has been designed to fit over a climbing helmet. With an adjustable wired front peak, bungee volume adjuster draw chord and large storm flap. 

The smock has 3 waterproof pockets, including 1 upper chest pocket with a waterproof zipper to hold a smartphone, a further pouch pocket can be accessed by long side zippers. The pouch pocket also acts as a ventilation point with mesh panels on the inside. 

The sleeves are of generous length for high reaching, have inner soft cuffs with thumb loops. Additional features include hook and loop tab fasteners to keep the cuffs watertight. Further ventilation ports are concealed beneath the zippers in the armpits and an access zipper at the bottom of each side of the smock, useful for users wearing a climbing harness. 

A recent review for our ATHV4400 Arbortec BreatheDry® Waterproof Smock - Hi-Vis Yellow 

read: ‘’I bought this smock for my grandson. He loves it and wears it not only on rainy days, but extremely windy days as well. He said other guys he works with were checking it out, so maybe you will get other sales’’.


Our Brand New Breathedry® HD Waterproof Smock

We have partnered with Porelle Membranes to create the perfect waterproof material (>17,000mm2 waterproof) for our brand new HD smock. This technical garment is constructed from 100% polyester 3 layered, laminated waterproof and breathable fabric. 

The smock confirms to the BS EN 343:2019 Classes 4, 4. 

We’ve reinforced the high-wear areas with abrasion resistant material for increased durability in tough conditions. The reinforced material on the shoulders, elbows and forearms are made from robust and flexible hexagonal patterned fabric for a comfortable fit and enhanced mobility. 

The long back allows the water to get away from the upper part of the smock, which can also be tucked behind a climbing harness to stop the smock from riding up the back.



The large hood can be removed or stowed away at the back of the jacket and also has a large, zipped pocket at the front of the smock with waterproof zips and a storm flap. Additionally a hidden chest pocket that is protected by the large storm flap which covers the main chest zip. 

Our new Heavy Duty Smock is available in Half-Zip or Full-Zip, ranging from sizes XS-5XL. Available in colours: Black, Olive, Red, Hi-Vis Yellow and Hi-Vis Orange.
