Leather Aprons, Chaps, and Sleeves
To add to our vast selection of welding gear, Weldmark® also carries a line of a heavy-duty, durable, select side-split leather welding bib and split leg welding aprons (russet brown color) that are specially tanned for heat resistance.

This combo jacket has the same features as the all-cotton model mentioned above but has select side split leather sleeves. This option gives greater protection for arms while remaining a cooler option than the all-leather jacket.

Key features include:

  • Inside scribe pocket
  • Non-reflective snaps down front and wrists

Weldmark® specialty items such as welding knee pads (sold per pair) are also available. These knee pads are constructed of heavy gauge plastic with adjustable straps to ensure proper fit. Their soft cushion padding allows for better knee comfort, and the front rubber scuff pad helps hold the user steady and in place.

To add to our large collection of welding clothing, Weldmark® offers a full line of high-quality industrial-grade gloves for all welding processes, including drivers, fitters, and other applications.
