Made with high visibility ANSI Fluorescent Yellow Green fabric and ANSI reflective tape for ANSI/ISEA 107-2010 Class 2 compliance and water safety.
Based on the original Mustang Floater Coat, the ANSI High Visibility Flotation Coat is engineered to provide comfort, warmth, and durability. Most importantly, the Coat's closed-cell foam insulation will provide flotation and in-water insulation to delay the onset of hypothermia in the event of accidental water immersion. Combined with functional elements such as large front pockets and a full-length storm flap, this Coat adds up to an unbeatable value.
Beginning November 24, 2008, the Federal Highway Administration (23 CFR 634) Highway Patrol Safety Regulation mandates that anyone working in the right-of-way of a federal-aid highway must be wearing high-visibility clothing that meet the requirements of ANSI/ISEA 107; 2004 edition class 2 or 3.
