After numerous trips into underground mines in Sudbury, Ont., and many awkward trips to the porta potty, one woman was fed up with wearing cumbersome, ill-fitting garments designed for a man’s body type. This prompted her to invent Covergalls — coveralls specifically designed for women. Covergalls have a two-way main zipper and a rear opening to improve the toilet use experience. Items are discretely secured in pockets with Velcro on both the front and back of the garment. Snaps at the wrist ensure the material does not hang from women’s arms and an adjustable Velcro waist adds security and comfort. Covergalls are available in sizes XS to XXXL, all tailored for women. They are made from polyester/cotton twill, FR or (optional) 100 per cent cotton material. Covergalls are manufactured in Canada and ideal for women in many industries.
