Protective equipment for everyone

Idling through the latest equipment catalogue of Swedish industrial clothing firm Blåkläder, The Ranger was delighted to find a hi-viz kilt:

Blåkläder kilt

No, it’s deadly serious. Features include:

  • Two loose nail pockets, can be placed in the front bellow pockets
  • Two back pockets with bellows
  • Rule pocket with pen pocket and knife-holder
  • Hammer loop
  • Leg pocket with telephone pocket
  • Certified according to EU standard EN 471 cl 2, high-visibility warning clothing

It’s not that he fancies wearing one, you understand. But, like Radio 3, it’s just comforting to know it’s there. (Thanks to David Harris via UKTC)

    I had such a laugh when I seen the hi-vis kilt, got to be one of the strangest hi vis items ever.
    Quality many thanks

    But what should a Scottish builder wear under his hi-viz kilt?

    The Ranger responds: the answer, from a real Scot, can be found here.

    Do they do a matching hi-vis sporran I wonder?
