Our uniform duty Hi-Vis softshell will keep you warm, dry, comfortable, and looking great. Most police officers know the importance of visibility better than the rest of us since they work in the roadway. For that reason, we believe that part of the reason for poor compliance to the high visibility standards established by the FHWA is the garments themselves. Public safety professionals do not want to look like the trash hauler or the local construction crew.
So how does the public differentiate a law officer from others on the road wearing visibility materials? One answer is colorblocking. Blauer was the first to use a combination of dark and Hi-Vis fabrics and textures to make a safety jacket. The blending of colors can actually improve daytime contrast and conspicuity. At night little more than the reflective striping can be seen from distances so the dark fabric has little downside. It does, however, change the look of our softshell making it more contemporary and giving it a uniform appearance. Our Hi-Vis yellow softshell is certified to ANSI 107-2020 Class 3 for 24/7 visibility. It is water and wind resistant, and highly breathable for all day in car use. Machine wash and dry.
