There are jackets that can be considered as the best welding jackets for summer time. Most of us, don’t want to wear a jacket during this season because it’s hot, and the jacket will only make it even hotter. Sadly though, as a welder, you can’t choose not to wear a jacket because it is part of the personal protective equipment. A welding jacket will be there to protect you from stray sparks or spatter that can burn your skin, and also it protects you chest, which contains some of your most vital organs from the heat of the arc.
Here are some welding jackets that you can check out. I choose cotton material for summer because they are lighter and more breathable compared to leather, which is usually thick and heavy. Leather would be perfect for winter, in my own opinion.

Here is a costumer’s thoughts after purchasing it:
“Great product but just to make it clear this is more like a heavy weight shirt than a jacket. I’m 6′ tall and 230lbs, the XL fit me well and leaves room to move around although if you are doing lots of overhead work it may be a tiny bit short when you have two arms up over your head (depending on the size of your belly). I’ve done lots of grinding and welding in it and so far I have not managed to burn any holes through it. The snaps are nice quality and the velcro at the top collar is a nice touch. I would definitely buy another and I highly recommend it.” —- Herb Nasti
The jacket received an average rating of 4.7 stars out of 5 stars.

Here is what a customer thought about the product after purchasing it:
“I wear an xxl t shirt, and the xxl jacket fits perfect. Great protection. I was grinding steel for a few hours yesterday purposely hitting the jacket with the sparks, and it still looks new. Not a whole to be found. There are only 4 snap buttons, so its easy to remove with thick welding gloves. Breast pocket is on the inside of the jacket to avoid the “hot pocket”.” —- Scott Gallagher
