(SPOT.ph) With the alarming spread of the pandemic in the country, it seems like things won’t be going back to normal any time soon. This means it’s still best to practice safety guidelines like wearing face masks, frequent handwashing, proper physical distancing, and thorough disinfection every time you get home. While face masks are the only mandatory personal protective equipment one needs to wear outdoors, it wouldn’t hurt to add an extra layer of protection like protective suits or jackets. In case you’re looking for reusable ones that actually look good enough to wear as casual clothes, you’ve come to the right place.
Check out these 10 stores that carry protective suits and jackets:
Ropa Fina’s PPE set includes a jacket, pants, and mask all in matching colors like peach, blue, and beige. Each piece is made out of taffeta material, a waterproof fabric that can help you stay protected whenever you have to step outdoors. A set of jacket, pants, and mask is priced at P1,350. You also have the option to purchase either the jacket or pants for P1,000 and P500 respectively. They also have non-medical PPE coats in khaki, olive green, and red for P1,050 each.
