The British Police High Visibility Utility Vest is a special purpose vest for police in the United Kingdom. Made to meet or exceed government specifications for high visibility warning clothing these vests give British police a high degree of visibility in low or no light conditions. With this increased visibility officers are protected from accidental strikes while on foot patrol as well as providing a more visible crime deterrent.

I've been unhappy with traffic vest sold for US police work. This UK vest is solid, has lots of pockets and very visible to traffic crying the day or night. With so many distracted drivers (we used to call they HUA drivers) this vest is great. Lots of pockets to store your kit and stuff. Wish the American police supply folks would make these (in yellow and dark blue with reflective stuff.) After you use it for traffic control, you will want to have a cup of tea.
