Key Features & Considerations When Buying One Of Our Hi Vis Work Bomber Jackets
When buying your hi vis bomber jacket you should be sure to weigh up the features that you require before making a purchase, below we cover some of the key features that are mostly unique to bomber jackets. For a more in depth look at features across all hi vis jackets please see our hi vis jackets page.
EN ISO 20471
This standard indicates that the product meets reflective standards required for hi vis garments. Most jackets will be Class 3, you will need to check the minimum requirement of the site you work at.
If you need a waterproof jacket then ensure that it is rated EN343 Class 3 or higher, you can find out more about EN343 on our Hi Vis Waterproofs page.
EN343 will also tell you how breathable the garment is, preventing perspriration build up. Also look for features such as vented under arms which can help control heat build up.
Cuffs on Bomber jackets range in styles, from elasticated cuffs to velcro tightend cuffs with neoprene inner cuffs. Each type has its benefits and trade offs.
Do you need a hood on your jacket, if so look for one that you can remove if required, or pack down into the collar. A good quality hood will be adjustable and feature a liner.
If you intend to wear your bomber jacket during winter months you will want to make sure it has weatherproof zips. This can be achieved in a number of ways including the addition of storm flaps.
Look for good quality branded zips such as YKK which wont come undone unexpectedly. A high visibility jacket that unzips itself every time you bend over is no good to anyone.
Bomber jackets can feature a number of different pocket styles, from designated mobile phone pockets, inner poachers pockets for documents and even hand warmer pockets.
Reflective Tape Application Method
Check how the reflective tape is applied, is it thermally bonded, stitched or both. This will have an impact on how long the bomber jacket lasts and remains compliant.
There are a number of different liners out there, including padded liners, microfleeces and fleece lined cuffs and collars. Each have an impact on the suitability of garment to certain climates.
There are now more and more options to choose from that are made from recycled materials, ensuring that you have a greener footprint when buying your hi vis clothing.
