Both vests look basically the same. Both may claim to be compliant. But only ONE actually meets reflectivity standards.The statistic no one saw coming:1 in 3 non-3M™ Scotchlite™ Reflective Material garments are not bright enough to meet relevant safety standards right out of the package, even though they are labeled as compliant.*
Few work environments are as dangerous as firefighting. During a fire, property and more importantly lives are at risk. Veteran firefighters agree that combating a complex fire is a team effort.

Treating accident victims on the road is also extremely dangerous, especially at night. 3M™ Scotchlite™ Reflective Material provides obvious solutions by helping firefighters be seen while fighting fires.
