Vollebak, the skunkworks of the outdoor gear world, has rolled out yet another cutting edge release. Introducing the brand’s Black Light Visibility Gear.
Unlike the kind of high-visibility equipment we’re all used to seeing – featuring neon colors, big reflective strips, and cheap fabrics – this series from the London-based brand boasts an all black build on a series of high-end garments ranging from shirts to jackets. Rather than using the traditional, more gaudy approach to guaranteeing visibility, these clothes instead rely on a unique layout of matte black dot. Those dots 22 dots, which are made up of 60,000 black glass spheres, bounce light back at a viewer and make the wearer instantly recognizable as a person rather than just a bright, shiny object. And because these dots are all black, they don’t stick out like a soar thumb when you’re wearing them during the day. The collection includes a shirt, long sleeve shirt, mid layer, and jacket. All things said – another fun, innovative design from one of our favorite brands.
