Life is busy, we get it. We’re women that are capable of multi-tasking and kicking goal after goal whether that’s at work, at home, with our children, friends or family - we’re givers without realising it. That’s why it’s so important to give back to ourselves as well. So, consider this your weekly REMINDER to do so.
The statistics surrounding textile waste and the damage it does to our environment and ocean can send any human mind into overdrive, but the facts are crucially important to know about. Once we have a better understanding of where our waste goes, the more power we have to make better choices for our planet.
No matter what body shape or category you fit into, Co Gear is dedicated to helping you find the perfect fit.

Shockingly this is the reality for a lot of pregnant women working in heavy duty or industrial roles. As the months progress and their baby bumps grow, working women that aren’t provided with maternity workwear options are having to choose between over-sized men’s cargos or jeans to wear on site. It’s a dilemma alright.
Spinning off from last weeks blog, Lucille 4-in-1 Ladies Hi Vis Jacket: Solving working women's workwear frustrations, we had an awesome opportunity to implement feedback received about our hi vis vest and hi vis jacket. If you weren’t already aware, the Lucille 4-in-1 Ladies Hi Vis Jacket comes with a removable vest and detachable hood, giving you the freedom to dress up or down as you please.
It’s not a secret we’ve kept on purpose, but not everyone has seen or felt our women’s work cargo pants in action! The Alison hi vis work cargos and the Carly non hi vis work cargos both share a unique and innovative feature designed specifically for the working woman in mind. This feature is known as an Easy Fit waistband – which is simply an invisible, extendable waistband.
As I’ve moved (very slowly!) through my pregnancy journey, I’ve been lucky enough to test, trial and rock Co Gear's next generation maternity range. In doing this I’ve been able to understand the technology that has gone into the features of these designs and how they’ve been made to grow with you and your baby.
Women are underrepresented in aviation. Rural challenges are distance, limited child-care and an improving (but still not adequate) female representation in aviation. Learning to fly is hard enough, but women in rural areas don't have the option of choice with the distance and may prefer a female instructor, who are few and far between.
On this specific day of acknowledgement, we celebrate females for their work in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematic fields. February 11th marks this wonderful day for women all around the world. Let’s be sure to thank and support them for what they have contributed to society and the change they are making for generations to come.
Going green. Zero or no waste. Reduce the impact. We have all seen the widespread promotion and the benefits surrounding these topics. But how many of us have started implementing changes in our homes, to help to reduce our waste and carbon footprint? Looking after the environment and everything in it is an important task, that we all need to play a part in. No waste education and looking after the environment can not only be a great activity for conscious families, but also a very fun one!
The definition of mentor is “an experienced and trusted adviser”. In other words, it’s someone that can support you to get from where you are, to where you want to be. There are many benefits to finding the perfect mentor, and women mentoring women can be a very powerful alliance.
The word diet often gets a bad rap and the first things that come to mind is food restriction and lettuce leaves. The reality is that we all have control over how and what we eat, and have the responsibility to nurture our bodies in the way that is best for us. Mindful eating/dieting is a personal arrangement between you and the food you eat, so how can you stick to this when working away from home on a FIFO roster, when the meals are prepared for you?
