The most obvious thing about choosing one of the best class 3 safety vests is that it has to be visible. If you’re not sure what else you need beyond bright colors and reflective materials, you’re in luck. We researched various designs to figure out which ones gave you the most visible, comfortable, and practical safety vests available. Before we get to our class 3 Safety vests reviews, let’s take a look at some of the features you need to know about.
Color: When it comes to color, think neon. Fluorescent. Bright colors with even brighter accents. Colors that will be noticed. There isn’t a lot of variety when it comes to color. Most of these vests are orange, lime green, or yellow.
Sleeves: We did find a great sleeveless option but most of these have some kind of sleeve. They’re all short sleeved, too, but the lengths vary a bit if you prefer something that gives you a little more coverage.
Pockets: Don’t worry, we know how important pockets are, especially if you’re going to be using this vest on the job. You’ll find big pockets, little pockets, exterior and interior pockets, open pockets and pockets with flaps.
ANSI Compliant: ANSI stands for American National Standards Institute. They’re a private, non-profit group that oversees voluntary standards for things like safety for industries and businesses in the US. All of the vests we found are compliant with their standards.
Available Sizes: People of all shapes and sizes need safety vests. Most of them are available in a wide range of sizes so you can dress your whole crew in matching ones, regardless of whether you’re petite or big and tall.
Washable: Since these vests are going to be used outdoors on projects that have the potential to get very messy, it’s important that they’re machine washable. We made sure that all of our top picks have this convenience.
