Reflective coatings have come a long way. We use a durable cloth which accepts the micro glass bead. It is hot pressed and coated with aluminum to increase its visible coefficient thereby achieving an extremely high silver reflective. The glass beads focus and reflect light back to the light source, this is critical and is retroreflection. Typically retroreflection can be seen several hundred feet away, even in low light situations.
Shorter days are certainly a trademark of winter and while we wish just as much as you that we could have a bit more daylight hours to enjoy being outside, the winter months have other ideas. For over a decade we’ve included strategically-placed safety reflective trims on our garments to ensure the age-old adage – safety first!
We wanted to be sure our youngest Obermeyer devotees are visible regardless of the light conditions. For over a decade we’ve included strategically-placed 3M Safety Reflective on our kids' jackets, pants and snowsuits to keep those most precious among us visible when evening settles in.
