Be seen. Be safe. Be comfortable. And in full ANSI 207-2006 compliance.
High Contrast Design provides better visibility against all backgrounds, under all conditions.
Lakeland High Visibility Vests are specially designed to help protect Public Safety Employees who must work in high traffic environments.
Meets ANSI 207-2006 for Public Safety Employees. Mandatory Since November 2008!
Federal legislation 23CFR634 became effective in November 2008. This enforceable standard requires all workers on foot, whose duties place them within the right-of-way for a Federal-aid highway, to wear High Visibility apparel. Included in this definition are “responders to incidents, law enforcement, personnel when directing traffic, investigating crashes, and handling lane closures, obstructed roadways and disasters with the right-of-way.”
ANSI 207-2006 is the new American National Standard for High Visibility Vests designed to meet the practical needs of Fire Fighters, Fire, Police, EMS and others engaged in Public Safety Operations.
Lakeland’s new High Contrast Public Safety Vests meet and exceed all ANSI 207-2006 requirements. If you haven’t already upgraded to high-contrast vests, now is the time. Each Lakeland model is specifically designed and sized to meet the special needs of its wearer, and to fit over operational clothing such as structural fire gear or a police officer’s duty belt.
These quality safety garments feature breakaway construction to reduce snag-and-drag dangers. FR treated solid polyester material is trimmed with full horizontal and vertical 2” silver retro-reflective tape centered on a bright, contrasting orange background stripe.
The combination of contrasting colors and reflective surfaces provides maximum visibility against all backgrounds and in all lighting and weather conditions.

Lightweight, comfortable, made for maximum safety. Advanced breakaway shoulders and sides allow this superbly engineered safety vest to come off quickly and completely, if it should ever become snagged by traffic or other hazard. Plus its hook-and-loop front closure not only allows faster donning and doffing, it provides a fifth breakaway point to exceed ANSI 207-2006 requirements for Public Safety Vests.
Lakeland’s FR solid polyester vest not only provides the highest level of contrast, it offers superior abrasion resistance, exceptional wear characteristics, fast drying, and easy laundering on non-commercial equipment. ASTM Fire Retardant treatment makes the durable fabric self-extinguishing to ASTM standards when moved away from the source of combustion.
Designed with functionality in mind. The hook-and-loop-fastening sides are not only an ANSI 207-2006 compliant safety feature; they also offer an extremely wide range of adjustment. Lakeland Public Safety vests will fit properly over many kinds of operational clothing and accessories, and still provide easy access to tools, radios, hydration, weapons, and other necessary gear.
The breakaway shoulders have rounded ends for non-chafing comfort and a secure hold, yet their hook-and-loop fasteners will come open quickly and cleanly when the vest is pulled.
A ventilated front radio pocket, badge tab, microphone tabs, and inside left chest pocket add utility for firefighters, fire police, law enforcement, rescue workers, and public safety officials of all kinds.
*The ventilating holes and wide woven nature of a mesh vest also allow the darker or non-fluorescent colors of your turnout coat or other clothing to show through, possibly muting the overall contrast and conspicuousness of the material.
- Regular: M – 2X (Adjusts to fit over regular street clothes or most turnout coats size 44-48)
- Oversize: 3X – 5X (Works well over coat/turnout coat sizes 50-54)
