Tingley Icon Hi Vis Jacket
Some manufacturers in the safety apparel industry aren’t the least bit concerned with style. That’s entirely fine as long as a piece of high visibility apparel has enough background material and reflective striping to meet ANSI standards. But we here at eSafetyStore kind of like style, and we like manufacturers that put some thought into their design.
That’s why we like the Icon Jacket by Tingley. The folks at Tingley recently added a few bells and whistles to the old Icon, which by all accounts was a fine all-weather rain jacket that offered the rare combination of waterproof protection and breathability. But now, the hi vis jacket is even better.
The Icon is now two-tone, offering a black bottom that hides dirt and grime. A clear ID pocket on the left chest allows for worker identification to be easily seen. The Icon has a vented cape back, mic tabs on both shoulders, and back D-ring access.
Bottom line: the revamped Tingley Icon is a darn fine hi vis jacket. And it’s functional. Not a bad combination.
