    This is a new company. So far they have one safety vest (only 2 pockets). Hopefully the company will grow and they’ll have a bigger selection. $30. From the website:

    The number one complaint of women required to wear high-visibility vests on job sites is Fit. With an amazing look and performance engineering to exceed ANSI / ISEA Class 2 requirements this Women’s Class 2 Safety Vest comes with a breakaway front closure, 100% breathable fabric, and two front pockets.

    Class 2 Women's Safety Vest with Pockets

    I’m less concerned with fit than with functionality. Only two pockets is a no-go for me. Something more like a surveyor’s vest would be great.


    There is a ‘vote’ link on the contacts page asking for what else you would like to see them make. I submitted a vote for ham radio vests with more pockets and a loop near the shoulder for the antenna.


    David, KM6DOV
    Something like this may work, and it’s cheaper.
    Full disclosure: KwikSafety sent me several products over the years for review.


    Almost perfect! I think I’ll get one and check it out. Thanks David.


    Irma, KM6JVU

    Thanks, David. That one looks good. I’d be willing to handsew an antenna loop on the shoulder if it doesn’t have one.


    David, KM6DOV

    Irma, it doesn’t look like it has an antenna loop/mic clip on the shoulder. The men’s version does. That’s disappointing, and I’ll reach out to them to see if they’re willing to add it in future production runs.
