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 Class 2 for 24/7 visibility. It is water and wind resistant, and highly breathable for all day in car use. Machine wash and dry.
