As one of the first manufacturers to introduce black safety vests to the global market, ML Kishigo is continuing on with the development of these popular products to bring you a broad selection of stylish, durable and visibility-enhancing garments.
Due to their design which features black background fabric, these vests aren't ANSI Compliant. However, since they have the same level of reflective striping as ANSI Class 2 & 3 garments, they're still very effective at improving visibility in a variety of environments where ANSI-rated garments aren't a requirement. They're an excellent solution for equipment operators, land surveyors, utility workers, public safety officials, emergency response and many similar occupations. The black design does a wonderful job at hiding the appearance of dirt and grime while providing a more stylish appearance than traditional orange and yellow safety vests. While visibility might not be as high as ANSI Class vests, the Black Series Safety Vests definitely provide an exceptional level of contrast.
ML Kishigo B100 Black Series Multi-Pocket Safety Vest

Equipped with plenty of pockets including dual inside patch pockets, dual outer chest pockets and dual lower flap pockets, it offers plenty of storage space.

Since these enhanced visibility vests don't meet ANSI requirements, we can't say they're perfect for everyone but they are a great option for anyone looking to stay safe. Just because ANSI isn't required on your job doesn't mean you shouldn't strive for optimal visibility, and since we know that many of you don't like the bright orange and yellow safety vests, the Black Series Safety Vests might be the perfect product that you don't mind wearing every day. After all, they are pretty darn cool looking!
