Workwear that inspires confidence during pregnancy

With everything going on internally and externally during this time of growth, we know how important it is to have some things remain the same, like comfortable and fitting clothes. When designing our next generation maternity workwear range, we considered how women would feel in our garments, not just look

Relocating for work: the pros and cons you need to consider

I moved to Townsville by myself, relocating from Toowomba to work for BHP. In hindsight it was the best thing I’ve done and I wouldn’t change it for anything. It helped me become more social when it came to work and the new friends I made, became family. Some great advantages was that it was easy to save money living remotely and I became a part of the small communities I lived in

The Many Roles Of A Woman: Women's Work Pants Create Resilience

With the resilience of the average (extraordinary) woman in mind, we’ve created a pair of pants suited to meet most, if not all of these roles. The magic formula? A little bit of style, a pinch of sustainable material, a shake of unique technology and a bucket load of conscious thinking, leaving us with a pair of adaptable and multifaceted cargo pants that ooze longevity. If you haven’t already guessed, we named her Sandy.

We’re Moving: New Warehouse For Our Women’s Hi Vis Workwear

With the expansion of our company and our steady growth, we knew it was time to update our current digs to our own warehouse. Being the leaders in Women’s Hi Vis Workwear and specialising in Women’s Hi Vis Maternity Workwear, we wanted to have our warehouse local – giving us more control over operations and customer experiences.

Conquering Mental Health Issues For Fly In Fly Out Workers

Mental health can often be viewed as a “taboo” subject, creating barriers and fear around opening communication channels to have those (sometimes tough) conversations. This is something Co Gear is passionate about breaking down in the workplace and community, along with external factors such as discrimination and workplace bullying.

Why We Support Shopping Second-hand

Okay, so it’s not just the love for bargain shopping that makes the Co Gear team a big fan of op shops – it’s about how it reduces the impact on our environment as well. Opting to purchase second-hand saves additional pollutants such as dyes and bleach being released into the environment, as opposed to when new garments are made.

The Pants Every Busy Woman Needs In Her Wardrobe

Co Gear has a name for creating industrial hi-vis Women’s Workwear, focusing on our innovative next generation maternity range, but here we are changing the game yet again with the release of Sandy. Women’s Workwear includes a broad range of styles and designs and we can proudly say that Sandy is versatile enough to stretch across multiple industries. Not only for the working woman but a staple, timeless, must-have piece for any busy woman's wardrobe.

How Late is Too Late?

There’s a misconception around aging and the milestones we are expected to meet along the way. There are no rules (or timelines) when it comes to finding your purpose, starting a new endeavour or even finding love. Women's Workwear brand, Co Gear, discusses the importance of being open to change, at any age.

How Co Gear collaborates, connects and creates!

Collaborations are an integral part of the Co Gear business and a key element to our success. We listen, we think outside the box and we create innovative women's workwear that makes a difference. Working along side BHP has opened so many doors for us and created opportunities to connect with the working women that Co Gear was created to support.

How to recognize and overcome Imposter Syndrome

“Now the reason why my uniform affected my confidence was simple. It was because it was a man's uniform, a uniform made for the person who “should” be doing this job. So, it's pretty safe to say when my Impostor Syndrome was working overtime it was easy for me to say "I shouldn't be doing this job. I'm playing dress-up in men's clothing for a man's role after all."

Unisex workwear doesn't sit well with us. Here's why.

Companies will argue that there’s “unisex” options available but how inclusive are they really? Is it not just men’s clothing that’s been labelled as an afterthought to “include” women? Well we think it’s a dismal excuse to gloss over the elephant in the room. Unisex industrial workwear is not designed with women in mind.
