If you have never heard of a Hi-Visibility Jacket it is a jacket that was designed with safety colors. These colors include yellow, safety orange, and sometimes they combine these two colors with other darker colors like black or navy blue. We find the combo jackets to be pretty impressive looking because they take a safety jacket and add a little bit of style to it in order to create a jacket that can be worn both on and off the job.
Now that you know more about the jacket itself let’s discuss the two reasons why you want to own a hi-visibility jacket.
Reason 1: Because when you are working outdoors you never want to be without one
If you work outdoors you don’t want to depend on your employer having a spare hi-visibility jacket that is why you want to own one of your own. This way when you are working outdoors you never have to worry about being without one. Having a jacket as opposed to a vest we have found can be a good thing. While the vest can be worn over items in different weather conditions the jacket serves as the ultimate solution. It can protect you from the cold, wind, and rain. With the visibility colors it also means that you are visible on the road which is a good thing.
Reason 2: Because being prepared for an expected event includes having safety gear already on hand
No one likes to think about those doom and gloom days or those unexpected events and why would you want to think about these things? They don’t help to make the day feel brighter, unless of course you have taken the time to make sure that you and your loved ones are well protected. If you have a hi-visibility jacket on hand and there is a flood, you and your family will be clearly visible from your roof top or wherever you may find yourself. Being seen in a situation like this can literally mean the difference between life and death.
