Key Features To Consider When Buying A High Vis Coat
Of primary concern when buying any hi visibility clothing should be its compliance with relevant standards. Most hi vis jackets are EN ISO 20471 Class 3 but it is always best to check before making a purchase.
Choosing a coat with the right liner is important, afterall it will likely be the part that you make the most contact with. By choosing a quality material you can be sure that the jacket will be comfortable.
How Many Washes
High visibility clothing is only rated for a set amount of washes, after wich it may not meet the reflectiveity and luminance standards that it is required to meet.
Ensure that the reflective tape on your chosen jacket is made by a reputable brand. Ideally it should be heat pressed and stitched on to ensure it lasts as long as possible.
Look for a high visibility jacket with a good quality branded zip. Better quality zips will not come undone unexpectedly which can result in entanglement or just a cold shock.
Zip Up Pockets
Consider if you need zip up pockets to keep belongings secure in. Many jackets feature waterproof phone pockets others may just have a simple flap covering the pocket.
If you need to keep documents or other items flat and dry an internal document pocket is a great feature that is present on many of our hi vis jackets and coats.
Having your ID to hand and securely stored can make getting into a construction site easier. Many of the jackets we supply have flip out ID holders within their external pockets for just this reason.
Do you want a high visibility coat that does it all keeping you warm and dry, or would you prefer a system that you can layer up over a fleece or softshell jacket. With the changeable UK weather this should be a consideration.
What colour of Hi Visibility jacket you need will depend on the role you work in, the industry you work in and even the company you work for. Be sure to check that you are buying the right colour.
Do you need a coat with a hood, if so do you need to be able to detach it or stow it away for those times when it is not raining. Many hoods also have adjusters to get a better weather seal.
Are you likely to be working in exposed windy environments? If so look for a jacket with built in wind proofing or a jacket that is compatible with windproofng layers.
If you work outside in the UK you will almost certainly want to have a hi vis rain jacket of some sort. Ensure that your chosen jacket has a good waterproof rating.
All waterproof jackets will also come with a breathability rating, this is important as sweat and moisture from inside the coat needs to be able to escape.
What materials is the jacket you are looking to purchase made from? There are many jackets available now primarily made from recycled materials.
Some of our jackets are reversible, meaning you can turn them inside out at the end of a shift at which point they resemble a sports jacket which is better suited to the commute home.
Arc Flash Rating
Do you work around high voltage electrical equipment and therefore need something that is rated for arc flash?
If you work on the rail network in the UK you will need to ensure that your chosen item of hi vis clothing is RIS-3279 compliant.
Full Length Zip
Having a full length zip ensures that you will not experience any unexpected drafts or leaks (especially important on hi vis winter jackets).
Keep out breezes and drafts that can be unpleasant during colder months. Jackets like our High Vis Bomber jacket feature elasticated waist bands that help seal out drafts.
Much like an adjustable waist having adjustable or elasticated cuffs can help keep unwanted breezes out of your sleeves and help keep you warm on windy days.
