I was recently approached by a good customer with a really good question. If disaster can strike on or near highways, and if ANSI vests will soon be required on federal highways, then shouldn’t a good Incident Command Vest also meet ANSI high-visibility standards? He was of course, absolutely correct.
The new AllMed Commander is a dual-purpose Safety Vest. It serves for daily use as a stylish and functional ANSI 107-2004 Class 2 certified Safety Vest. With a quick title panel change it can be converted into a Disaster or Incident Command Vest in seconds. The Commander sets a whole new standard in safety vests combining a professional uniform appearance with a contemporary style.
Constructed of waterproof 500-denier PU coated nylon – the Commander is built for the demands of professional use. Our rugged ANSI certified fabric is the same type used to make trauma bags. It’s also extremely weather resistant. The Commander pioneers a new more tailored design with the side straps ends tucked neatly away inside the shell. With a foot of adjustment on each side, it can be worn over a heavy coat or a lightweight polo shirt.
It features mesh covered ventilation slots through both the front and back panels for air circulation. The bi-pleated elastic back affords freedom of movement and improved comfort doing demanding work. The full height zipper with rain flap helps keep you protected from bad weather. Another first is the full breathable lining, equal to the outside construction of most other safety vests!
Clear vinyl window pockets on the front and back accept reflective laminated title panels. We offer customized graphic panels for your service name and/or incident command titles. Reflective title panels are flexible, waterproof, and UV resistant. Standard features include tool pockets for scissor, flashlights, or pens, a breast pocket, radio pocket, dual microphone tabs and two roomy inside pockets.
Our 5-pt. breakaway design uses twice the typical amount of hook & loop at the shoulders. We offer it in 5 different sizes – because a vest that fits right doesn’t get snagged in the first place. Our ANSI certified combination reflective trim has a vinyl top layer to help protect the micro bead layer from abrasion. These unique features help make the AllMed Commander the most sophisticated and functional safety vest on the market. The first shipment should arrive in time for the November ANSI deadline. It just finished laboratory testing and is third party certified in full compliance with ANSI 107-2004.
