3 common mistakes when buying Hi-Vis clothes

Are you looking for comfortable work-wear with high visibility? Make sure you choose the right items for this dark season. Here is a list of three common mistakes when buying Hi-Vis clothes.

1. Too long between the washings

To be called Hi-Vis clothing, a product must be certified to last at least five washes without loosing capacity. Many of L.Brador’s products are certified for up to fifty washes. And actually, a common mistake is to be afraid of washing them too often. Keeping your clothes clean is extremely important, otherwise the dirt gets into the garment and the visibility will decrease. An easy-to-clean garment will increase your safety at exposed workplaces. So remember to take a look at the laundry information before deciding which clothes you want to buy.

2. Quality that falls back

You often get what you pay for, and this also applies to Hi-Vis clothes. Lower quality means that you both need to change clothes more often and that you feel less comfortable when wearing them. Most of L.Brador’s Hi-Vis work-wear use 3M stretch reflectors, which are of absolute highest quality. Compared to a sewn reflex, the material is not so tight, which provides better ventilation and more mobility while also lasting longer.

3. Relax with comfort

Don’t forget to take care of the details and features of your Hi-Vis clothes, in order to get a nice and comfortable workday. If you often work in wind and cold, you will notice that a jacket with wristlets will keep your wrists warm, and that you will appreciate it being long enough to cover your lower back.
