We received our first shipment, just in time for introduction at EMS Today next week in Baltimore. The new AllMed Hi-Viz Rescue Vest combines comfort with function. This deluxe load bearing EMS vest features 5 deluxe equipment pockets, a radio carrier, a pen pocket, and a double entry cervical collar pouch across the back. It even has inside pockets for personal items. The vest is intended to give you instant access to everything you need in the first few minutes of care. Manufactured of rugged 500-denier nylon, with a heavy-duty liner, and durable poly-coil zippers, this vest stands up to the abuse of rescue and extrication. Water repellant Hi-Viz yellow with highly reflective trim, this vest can easily be seen at night in harsh weather.
To give credit where it’s due, this vest is not my original design. It’s very similar to the vest first sold by Pacific Emergency, probably designed by Drew Roberts or Brad Field. Another version is a similar vest made by Ferno. My only contribution was to take this street-proven design, and make it safer. By combining high-visibility and rapid care, this vest offers a whole new take on the idea of a personal trauma kit. The latest version of our Hi-Viz Rescue Vest is Certified ANSI 107-2004 Class 2 Compliant Available in only Hi-Viz Yellow in 5 different sizes.
