Gerber Hi-Vis Outerwear

It's that time of year when the chill is in the air, which means it’s time to get your Hi-Vis Outerwear to stay seen and warm on the scene. At theEMSstore, we’ve got you covered; check out these great Hi-Vis options from Gerber:

Response 3-in-1 Parka with Removable Liner/Fleece
The 3-in-1 Parka is guaranteed to provide comfort in all conditions, while maintaining optimum visibility on the scene. This NFPA- and ANSI-certified, hip-length EMS jacket is waterproof and breathable. Its two-tone design (lime yellow with midnight accents) features durable Scotchlite reflective trim. 

The removable Polar Fleece Liner is an added bonus, as it just zips in and out when you need extra warmth, or can be worn separately. You'll never run out of storage with the variety of spacious pockets to keep your life-saving gear close by.

The Thriller is another great option, featuring a waterproof, breathable, 5-in-1, waist-length design. The outer jacket is reversible and has a removable soft-shell liner jacket. The outer shell is reversible from navy blue to an ANSI 107 Class 3 compliant color combination. The jacket features a black-edge silver reflective trim on the lime-yellow sides that helps add to the visibility during low-light operations. You can wear the soft-shell liner separately, or as a thermal layer under the outer jacket. The versatility of this jacket makes it one-of-a-kind and worth a closer look.
