Class 2 and Class 3 Vests

Black Series Heavy Duty Class 2 Vests are made of Ultra Cool™ polyester mesh and are ANSI/ISEA 107 Class 2 Compliant. Class II safety vests are designed for workers who need greater visibility in poor weather conditions, and who are exposed to roadways with traffic that exceeds 25 miles per hour.


Class II vests are ideal for railway workers, school crossing guards, parking and toll gate personnel, airport ground crews and law enforcement personnel directing traffic.


According to ANSI standards, class II vests must have 775 square in. of background material, and 201 square in. of reflective material.

Class 2 vests:

  • are designed for moderate risk
  • school crossings, parking lots, traffic direction
  • less stringent requirements
  • smaller than Class 3 vests


Class III vests are designed to provide the highest level of visibility in extreme weather situations and around traffic going more than 50 mph. They are required to have 1,240 inches of fluorescent background fabric and 310 inches of reflective material. That much fabric is going to make one heck of a big vest. That’s why the typical garment that meets the minimum Class 3 requirement is actually a short sleeve shirt with reflective tape. The difference? About 465 square inches of fluorescent material and about 109 inches of reflective tape.

Class 3 vests:

  • visibility in bad weather such as hurricanes or blizzards
  • worn by emergency personnel and traffic teams working on freeways and highways
  • larger than class 2 vests
