GloWear Hi-Vis Sweatshirts and shirts

St. Paul, Minn. (August 27, 2013)– Ergodyne has announced today the expansion of their GloWear® Hi-Visibility (Hi-Vis) Shirts Series to include seven new garments and a design update on two existing models. Available September 2013, the new and refreshed hi-vis products provide comfort, compliance, and visibility in a single garment (eliminating the need for a hi-vis vest) and are designed to withstand the elements.

“ANSI 107-compliance is becoming mandatory in more and more places, and workers are looking for compliant single-garment solutions that also meet their needs for climate and comfort,” said Andy Olson, senior product manager, Ergodyne. “Our new and improved GloWear® shirts offer workers choices of different performance classes, styles, and configurations to deliver on these very wants and needs.”

These ANSI-compliant garments not only keep workers safe – they ensure comfort no matter the season. The t-shirts boast moisture wicking properties to keep workers cool and dry while the sweatshirts are composed of a toasty warm polyester polar fleece to keep heat close to the body. Additionally, all new shirts feature heat transfer reflective material versus sewn-on, adding to the comfort and flexibility of the garment.

“This launch greatly enhances our GloWear® Hi-Vis Apparel offering, adding a solid mix of choices and more apparel flexibility for workers,” said Tom Votel, president and CEO of Ergodyne. “Whatever the condition, we’ve got workers covered – and always protected.”

Ideal for workers needing ANSI-compliant hi-visibility clothing, the new GloWear® Hi-Visibility Series additions will be available September 2013 by all authorized US distributors. For more information, visit, email or call
