Active light source
The active lighting is down to an innovative LED light guide system, developed in collaboration with OSRAM®. The cables for the optical fibres are integrated in the back of the garment, between the outer fabric and the lining. The pulsating light source makes the wearer more visible in poor weather conditions, even from a distance.
Our vest and softshell jacket are each equipped with four optical fibres (4LL) and the textiles are certified in accordance with OEKO-TEX® standard 100. The 4LL vest meets high visibility standard EN ISO 20471 class 1, the softshell jacket class 2.
