Hi Viz Stich Recall
Just saw this on the site
For Immediate ReleaseMN 55806
Subject: Recall of Aerostich Fluorescent Lime Yellow High Viz Garments
Some Aerostich Fluorescent High Viz Lime Yellow Garments sold between August,
2007 and September 2008 may be subject to excessive color fading. Purchasers of
these garments may return them for a full refund or replacement. This excessive color
fading does not affect the strength, function or durability of the garment.
All replacement High Viz Lime Yellow garments are of a more fade resistant Lime
Yellow color which is similar to the color used in all Aerostich High Viz garments
produced between 1998 and 2006.
Aerostich pioneered High Viz Lime Yellow for use in riders clothing more than ten years
ago in Darien and Roadcrafter rider’s suits. These were the worlds’ first rider’s jackets
and suits to use a High Viz Lime Yellow color intended specifically to help motorcyclists
be more highly visible to surrounding traffic. The specific Lime Yellow tint then chosen
was the most visible color available without added fluorescent dyes. This High Viz Lime
Yellow color was determined to be the most visible in the color spectrum by optical and
Fluorescent color pigments all will fade excessively when exposed to direct sunlight,
unless they are protected by an over-layer that blocks some UV wavelengths.
Aerostich introduced the fluorescent version of it’s High Viz Lime Yellow last year,
when this limitation had been beloved to have been successfully addressed.
