As the nights start to draw in and days become drearier road safety becomes even more important to the equestrian community.
With safety in mind Opal Equestrian have created a new and unique Hi-Vis LED Gilet. The item is an advanced update for safety wear in the UK and has been designed to help keep you and your horse visible on the roads.
Comfortable and stylish the gilets unique design combines Hi-Vis fabric, reflective strips and LED lights front and back. The LED lights can be set to on, fast flash, slow flash and off. They have an 8.5 hour running time, so no risk of losing light out on those longer rides and are rechargeable via a USB cable, so no need for batteries!
LED lighting is an effective and functional way to stand out whilst riding or walking, not only in the dark but also on those brighter days when the sun can hinder drivers viewing ability.
The item is machine washable, for ease of care and features two handy exterior and interior pockets for keeping items safe whilst out and about. Vigorously tested by both ourselves and the manufacturer the materials conform to Safety Standards EN ISO6330, EN ISO20471 and EN471.
