Ergodyne announced today the redesign of its GloWear® Hi-Vis Apparel Line. New features include additional mic tabs and enlarged pockets on vests, pants, and jackets to give workers increased storage space and better utility on the job.

"The new features on our GloWear® Hi-Vis Apparel Line make it more functional and practical," said Megan Tansom, product specialist, Ergodyne. "Now, workers have more spots to store devices on most hi-vis vests, jackets, and pants without sacrificing visibility."

Specifically, more vests now come with up to two radio mic tabs to hold a radio/microphone, pens, or tools. Pockets were enlarged on some models and added to others for workers to store tablets, work gloves, tools, etc. In response to the smartphone and tablet boom, cellphone pockets were updated to accommodate larger and newer styles. These changes apply to popular existing models such as the GloWear® 8220HL/8220Z, 8250Z, and 22 other vests, pants, and jackets. Last but not least, 2XL/3XL size ranger hats are now available as well.

"As technologies change, so do the needs of workers," said Tom Votel, president and CEO, Ergodyne. "This upgraded GloWear® Hi-Vis Apparel Line demonstrates our flexibility and commitment to meet their changing needs."

Ideal for workers who want functional hi-vis protection, the redesigned models in the GloWear® Hi-Vis Apparel Line will be available as running changes at all authorized Ergodyne distributors. For more information or to find out where to buy, visit or call 800.225.8238 // 651.642.9889.
