We see it differently, then.

That guy appears to have never been in serious missions with aircrews.

Aircrew will see him differently as well. Or maybe not at all...

The intent is safety and visibility. Obstructing it with non compliant gear does not seem to me as the intent.


So what about letting folks just wear what they like, and then as they start a mission, have them all line up and spray 'em down with this:

Buy it, wear your ANSI 2/3 vest over your uniform's outermost layer, and then put this on. You're still compliant per 62-1 as noted above.


Maybe the letter, but not the spirit. Integrity something something as well.

Did you look at the back of the vest?  There doesn't seem to be anything there that would significantly cover up an ANSI rated safety vest and what is covered up in front is "replaced" by the reflective material on the front of the vest.

Nope.

Assuming 1" wide reflective stripes, with a total length of 22", that's a total ares of 22 in2, less than half of the 52 in2 area of the front of the ANSI 2 compliant vest in my flight bag. The vest in the OP would cover up almost all of the reflective material on the front of mine.
