Hi Viz Stich Recall

Just saw this on the site

For Immediate Release
09/19/08
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
vision research.
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.
More information about this product recall program is available at
or 218 722 1927 or by mail at 8 South 18th Ave West, Duluth,
MN 55806


JUST FYI

Maybe they should talk to the folks at Olympia and find out why their much brighter hiviz doesn't fade.

But I'm not sure, the stich' might be a tad heavier fabric than the Olympia.

I got a new RC last week and commented on how much less brighter it was than my olympia airglide. It is a noticable difference.

Funny
I ordered my High-Viz darien just after they released the new collar and better sizing but the Old V1.0 high viz
Just after that they changed to the High-Viz 2.0
And I was pissed. Thought about sending my new jacket back to get the HV2.0
but now I'm happy with the OG High-Viz 'cause it's just better looking.
You know more OG.

WOW! To recall for fading is either really stand-up on stich's part or the fading is REALLY bad (could it be worse than the red faded?)
