This HDX safety vest is extremely bright. The orange color is contrasted with the highly-reflective safety tape affixed over the shoulders and around the waist. The safety vest makes an excellent, low-cost choice for in an automotive automotive safety kit or, perhaps, for an earthquake safety kit, not to mention for use at a job site require the use of such a vest. This safety vest is a one-size-fits-most, so it runs quite large. The sides are adjustable, though, so this would fit someone of just about any size and would easily fit over one's clothing, including most jackets, I suspect. I am pleased with this product and I recommend it.
As an inspector, I have a need for high visibility on construction
job sites, and this vest stands out quite well.
I really like the adjustability of the side straps,
that allows me to pull it in tight to my waist. Just like
it was custom for my size, even though its multisize capable.
Made of quality materials, the fit and finish is really nice.
This vest is great. It has adjustable straps to fit any size build or garment you might be wearing. It has Velcro straps that tighten snugly. It’s bright orange with reflective strips making it visible day or night. It’s light and has a breathable mesh material. This vest is suitable for working close to traffic, or jogging, hiking, or biking. Keep one in your car in case of emergencies
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Looks Great, Nice Design
I have been looking for a good orange vest and this is the best I’ve found. It is High-Visibilty orange with wide reflective stripes that reflect any kind of light. It has a zip front closure that is much better than others I’ve owned that were just Velcro and they wear out. It has adjustable wings on the sides so that you can make it fit better as it’s a one size fits all. Very pleased with the product.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, High Quality, Looks Great, Lots of Features, Nice Design, Sturdy
The HDX ANSI Class 2 Type R Hi-Viz Orange mesh vest is very well made. The vest is equip with 2 in. silver reflective tape that is sewn onto a breathable, lightweight mesh fabric, even on a hot day in the direct sun it was comfortable. There is a zipper in the front for a secure closure along with one interior and one exterior pocket. This vest is made in China.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design
I chose this product for walking the dog during the day and in the evenings. Especially with daylight savings time, it will get dark earlier. We live in a busy neighborhood with tons of traffic and I wanted to feel safer and visible. The orange is bright and noticeable, the reflective tape works great when car headlights approach. The vest is one size fits most (which I like), made of breathable mesh, has adjustable velcro straps at the waist, interior oversized pockets (great for carrying cell phone, wallet), exterior pocket on chest, reflective strips front and back, zipper closure. Overall, I feel safer walking anytime of the day. It is a good product, I recommend.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Clean, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Lots of Features, Nice Design
This is a great one-size fits all vest! It is also a vest that I realize COULD SAVE MY LIFE SOMEDAY! I am glad that Home Depot is selling these. I already have an insulated, blaze orange vest which I bought online because I couldn't find it anywhere else, but it would be way too warm to wear anytime but winter. I consider this a SAFETY vest for anytime of year, anytime I feel I might be at risk, during hunting season (I live in the country), or if I am out in road after dark. I tend to like to take walks late evening, helps me to unwind. The problem with walking at night out in the country is that a driver may not see me in the darkness. He/she WILL see me wearing BLAZE ORANGE!
I am an outdoors enthusiast, LOVE the outdoors. Again, I live in the country where there are LOTS of other woodlands, am also in very close proximity to hundreds of acres of conservation land, which I love. I love taking my dog hiking through it, great exercise; we both also get to enjoy the great outdoors. Danger arises, however, during hunting season. One time, I emerged from the forest about the same time as a hunter. He criticized what I was wearing, a bright red winter coat. He warned that from a distance a hunter might confuse me for a bird (cardinal). I denied LOOKING LIKE A BIRD. He explained that while hunters sit around waiting to encounter an animal, many often DRINK and may be intoxicated by the end of the day, in which case seeing "RED" (my red coat) from a long distance, they just MIGHT mistake me for a bird and SHOOT. He strongly urged me to invest in a blaze orange vest for myself. He explained that ALL HUNTERS in MA REALIZE BLAZE ORANGE is associated with PERSON OR PET, DON'T SHOOT! I already had a blaze orange vest for my yellow lab, fearing she could be mistaken for a deer, but it never occurred to me that I could be at risk dressed in a bright RED winter coat. I promptly bought myself an insulated, blaze orange vest. It is awesome, but too warm for anytime but winter; hunting season is always late November, which is why I chose it.
This vest is for any time of year. It is a light polyester vest. The materials looks like it has tiny holes in it, which allows your body to "breath" on a hot day. It has adjustable straps by the waist so that you can adjust it for body size, so even someone very petite could wear this. The vest also has a large interior pocket, also an exterior pocket, and it has a durable front zipper.
I plan to begin wearing this vest on my late evening walks, also in the forest. It will give me peace of mind that I will be easily seen. It is a SAFETY VEST, one that could save your life! I consider it a very small price to pay for SAFETY. Again, it COULD SAVE MY LIFE SOME DAY... money well spent!
Only days ago, I was driving home late one night. Someone was on a bicycle riding home in the rain on a very, very dark night. I would not have even seen them from a distance but for the SAFETY vest the biker was wearing. As a driver, I was glad they had it on... it drew my immediate attention to them so I knew they were there, could easily avoid them. I think that everyone should have one of these vests if you ever are in a position where you could be at risk. Again, it would be a small price to pay to SAVE YOUR LIFE!
Pros: Easy to Clean, Easy to Use, Looks Great, Stylish, can be used any time of year, could save your life, blaze orange color is easily identifiable, large interior pocket, exterior pocket, durable front zipper, one size fits all, size can be adjusted with felcro waistband, can be used by man or woman
Not sure why, but I am always surprised by the high quality of HDX products. This HDX High-Visibility Reflective Safety Vest, Adult Unisex proves the point. It is well constructed using plenty of breathable, lightweight seemingly durable material and as stated, should fit most individuals. The zipper zips easily enough and the simply designed Velcro flaps are easy to use to personalize the fit. It should easily fit over just about anything you’re wearing. There is a pocket to one side on the chest and one inside near the waist. If not bright enough, reflective stripes maximize night visibility. When needed between uses, wash warm and rinse cold in short cycle then tumble dry low and you’re ready to go safely again. I plan on wearing this thing when cleaning up downed trees, during hunting season, and, well, when biking. This Vest was a good deal. Nice safety vest, Home Depot.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, High Quality, Stylish
This is a highly visible, lightweight vest. The breathable fabric is a necessity for me in Florida. It has wide Velcro type adjustable straps to fit a variety of sizes. There is a large, lower inside pocket and a smaller exterior pocket. The grey retroreflective trim is sewn on the exterior and does not catch on garments worn underneath. Both the fabric and reflective trim are highly visible as seen in the last photo (taken in a dark closet). It has a good quality, heavy front zipper. It is rated new as visible at 1,000 feet. 5 Stars
