Maritime roboticist Scott Sideleau is no stranger to Mother Nature’s mood swings. Day in and day out he battles breaking waves, double overheads, high winds, rain, frostbite and corrosive salt water. As a 5th Season Fix Up Contest winner, he eagerly accepted the challenge of adding $200 worth of Duluth Trading work clothes to endure the high seas while operating robots and doing scientific research.
“A beard is worn to protect my face, but my clothes take a real beating,” explains Scott. “Fire Hose® Work Pants have been resilient against snags and tears, which is a big plus when I’m forced to crawl around boat scaffolding to get eyes on a robot that may have gone awry in the water.”
Here’s a few more workwear recommendations for our seafaring mate to weather the tempestuous 5th Season.
