It’s hard to hide Tillman’s New Line of High-Vis Safety Vests


The John Tillman Co., the brand leader in welding Personal Protective Equipment launched its new line of high visibility safety vests.  The Tillman high visibility safety vests offer functional design with features users need to help them be more efficient at the job site.  “When we started designing the Tillman family of safety vest, we started with the value proposition that the vests must be comfortable, durable, practical and provide the user, and their company, a great value”, said Jeff Shipley, Director of Marketing for Tillman. 

“The baseline when designing the vests were that every vest had to be ANSI 107 Type R, Class 2 compliant”, said Shipley.  “That being said, the family of safety vests had to be comfortable, functional, lightweight and, well, look cool”, said Shipley.  

During the development process, Tillman watched how users worked and how their safety vest interacted with their daily work routine.  “We quickly realized that a person’s safety vest just isn’t a bright yellow vest with reflective stripes, often times a safety vest is their office, in the field, or the warehouse”, said Shipley.  “With the integration of technology in the workplace, vests have to offer features that allow the user to work more efficiently.  This includes pockets for phones, identification pouches to more around the job site easier and larger pockets for tablet devices, notebooks and larger gloves like welding gloves”. 

Tillman designed their high-vis safety vests from the ground up for welding, construction, manufacturing, industrial workers and tradespeople. These premium safety vests offer quality materials, extra reinforcements, durable construction and exceptional comfort for hours of wear.  Tillman’s goal is simple; keep workers seen and safe; only the way Tillman can do it.  Quality is built into every Tillman safety vest, including the entry-level economy vest.  It’s Tillman’s attention to detail. 


Tillman included six high-vis safety vests in their line-up with four of the vests offering fire-resistant materials and one of the vests providing HRC 2 protection.  Being the market leader in Welding PPE, Tillman had to look at those working near welding, grinding or torch work that might require a FR vest.  “Often times we saw sparks shooting out from a grinding wheel as well as sparks and spatter raining down from floors above, our fire-resistant vests are designed to protect workers throughout a job site while being affordable”, said Shipley.  Not everyone requires a NFPA 70E-2012, tested to ASTM F1506 with an HRC rating, yet they do need an affordable fire-resistant vest, this is what three of the Tillman FR safety vests provide. 

Users expect the best from Tillman’s gloves and will expect the same craftsmanship and quality from Tillman High-Vis Safety Vests.   Being safe is part of the job, Tillman high-vis safety vests help your team to be seen and safe.
