Federal legislation 23CFR634 became effective in November 2008. This enforceable standard requires all workers on foot, whose duties place them within the right-of-way for a Federal-aid highway, to wear High Visibility apparel. Included in this definition are “responders to incidents, law enforcement, personnel when directing traffic, investigating crashes, and handling lane closures, obstructed roadways and disasters with the right-of-way.”
Lightweight Cool Mesh maximizes both safety and comfort. Advanced breakaway shoulders and sides allow this superbly engineered safety vest to come off quickly and completely, if it should ever become snagged by traffic or other hazard. Plus its hook-and-loop front closure not only allows faster donning and doffing, it provides a fifth breakaway point. Lakeland’s Cool Mesh FR polyester material provides unsurpassed levels of contrast and visibility for a mesh vest. Plus its light weight and oval-vented design allows almost complete ventilation for maximum comfort in the hottest conditions, while still offering exceptional abrasion resistance and wear characteristics. You’ll find it extremely fast drying. And laundering is easy on non-commercial equipment.
Designed with functionality in mind. The hook-and-loop-fastening sides offer an extremely wide range of adjustment. Lakeland Public Safety vests will fit properly over many kinds of operational clothing and accessories, and still provide easy access to tools, radios, hydration, weapons, and other necessary gear.
The breakaway shoulders have rounded ends for non-chafing comfort and a secure hold, yet their hook-and-loop fasteners will come open quickly and cleanly when the vest is pulled. Microphone tabs on each shoulder, and an inside left chest pocket add utility for fire police, law enforcement, firefighters, rescue workers, and public safety officials of all kinds.
