In 2017, we’ve launched the chainsaw protective trousers “Samourai”. Today we’re proud to launch the high vis version of this already legendary pair of trousers. A garment that makes you be seen in every sense of the word.
Remember our Samourai?
The launch of the Samourai did not pass unnoticed. The revolutionary premium Samourai fit like a second highly protective skin and have been especially conceived for the most demanding working conditions. What's more, the trousers have been completely developed to be as ergonomic as possible and are available in 3 different leg lengths Short, Regular and Tall. All this to assure you focusing on your work instead of on the environment in which you’re working.
At the time, the garment was available in 3 colours: red, grey and kaki green. And as of today, also in high visible orange.
The Samourai high vis version complies with the EN381-5 class 1 (type A) norm, protecting the front and inner side of the legs.
The Samourai hi-vis trousers combine high visibility in accordance with EN ISO 20471 class 2 with the specific characteristics of the standard Samourai trousers - hardwearing. Heavy vegetation of any kind, even high bramble bush, are no match for the Tektor reinforcements. Working along or in the vicinity of a road is no longer an issue with these high vis trousers. They are also available in 3 different leg lengths Short, Regular and Tall. All this to assure you focusing on your work instead of on the environment in which you’re working.
Why you should go high vis
If all of the above is not enough reasons, here’s the most important one: you want to be seen. In every sense of the word.
Let’s start with the less obvious. Being seen, figuratively speaking. It is a fundamental need of every human to be seen. We are living in an increasingly fast-paced world. Personally, and professionally, our schedules are filled to the max and we’re so consumed with working through the seemingly never-ending volume of work that we can forget acknowledging the people walking by and more importantly by acknowledging ourselves. By equipping ourselves with the best protective garments possible, we’re being seen. We’re recognized. These garments make us feel safe and empowered. Seen. There are lots of international studies on the subject, but the conclusion is that being seen makes us come alive. It validates us. It infuses us with energy. It motivates us. Being seen brings us in a positive state of mind and simply makes us perform better.
And of course, there’s the obvious sense of being seen. In other work-related areas where high visibility clothing has been worn for decades, it has been proven that is reduces the work-related injuries 10 times and more. Why shouldn’t this be true in your working conditions? When you’re working in twilight or even at night, in foul weather that often blurs the view, alongside roads, in secluded areas, in zones where hunters can easily confuse you for their game. You want to be seen, clear.
Finally, the high vis Samourai offers you that little extra: it’s flashy and so is your personality. Great match!
