A hi-vis vest is a piece of reflective clothing that is designed to be worn over to increase a person’s visibility to others and maximise their safety in hazardous environments.
Hi-vis vests come in a range of fluorescent colours such as yellow, orange, and pink. Like other pieces of hi-vis workwear, hi-vis vests are also covered with silver matt strips that wrap around the torso area of the clothing. These strips are highly reflective and shine brightly when even small amounts of light are directed at them, making it easier to see the wearer in low-light environments.
What makes the best hi-vis vest?
People use hi-vis vests to make themselves more visible in hazardous environments for protection. In order to maximise the safety of the wearer, the best hi-vis vests are made from reflective materials in bright colours. As well as being reflective, the hi-vis vests need to be lightweight, easy to take on and off so as not to impede the wearer.
