On the Skin

Miners often suffer from muscular and skeletal damage over the course of their work lives, with back and shoulder injuries being particularly common.

On the Skin is a protective shirt that supports and restrains the upper body to ensure that the wearer maintains correct posture at work, reducing the risk of injury. A lightweight harness over the shoulders and chest ensure that weight is evenly distributed over the body, while the lower back protection supports muscles and reduces tension when force and movement are applied.
