XS Hi-Vis Vests

St. Paul, Minn. (June 1, 2016) – Ergodyne announced today the addition of an extra small size to several garments in the popular GloWear® Hi-Vis Apparel Line – utilizing a new provision in the updated ANSI/ISEA 107-2015 Standard for Hi-Visibility Apparel and Accessories permitting a “smallest size” exception to the minimum area requirements for background materials used in Type R Class 2 and 3 garments.

The four GloWear® hi-vis vests and one t-shirt now available in XS include:

No longer will smaller workers have to worry about a work shirt or vest drooping down past their knees, possibly catching in equipment or machinery. This change will allow worksites to better accommodate workers of various sizes.

“When a vest/shirt is not worn properly, its function is compromised,” said Megan Tansom, senior product specialist, Ergodyne. “We always want workers to be highly visible and fully compliant in their work environments – and that starts with wearing PPE that fits.”

Ideal for smaller workers who want safer, better-fitting hi-vis protection, the selection of GloWear® XS vests/shirt are available NOW in lime and orange at all authorized Ergodyne distributors.
