ICON GUIDE Use the icon legend below as a guide to help quickly identify unique features and benefits for Red Kap ® garments shown above most product names. TOUCHTEX TECHNOLOGY Superior color retention, soil release and wickability. TOUCHTEX PRO Same features as Touchtex but with an even softer hand. Available on bottoms only. DURABLE PRESS Minimum pressing or ironing required. Fabric contains a wrinkle-resistant finish. RIPSTOP FABRIC Lightweight yet extra durable ripstop fabric keeps rips and repairs to a minimum. HI-VISIBILITY CLASS DESRIPTIONS HI-VISIBILITY - TYPE 0, CLASS 1 Intended for use in environments where there are struck-by hazards from moving vehicles, equipment and machinery not operating on public access rights of way or temporary traffic control zones. HI-VISIBILITY TYPE R CLASS 2 Intended for use by personnel exposed to vehicular traffic from public access rights of way or roadway temporary traffic control zones. Class 2 garments require the use of greater amounts of high-visibility materials which help distinguish between a human and an inanimate object. MIMIX Thanks to a patented, science-based MIMIX design, Red Kap ® products with MIMIX offer increased mobility and breathability for all-day comfort. OILBLOK TECHNOLOGY Repels oil and oil-based fluids keeping garments looking new, longer – and it’s only available from Red Kap ® . DURABLE WATER REPELLENT (DWR) FINISH Repels water and water-based liquids while decreasing dry time nearly 30% compared to other non-treated twill workwear fabric. HI-VISIBILITY TYPE R CLASS 3 Intended for use by personnel exposed to vehicular traffic from public access rights of way or roadway temporary traffic control zones. Class 3 garments mandate an even higher standard of visibility for workers in moving, complex backgrounds. HI-VISIBILITY SUPPLEMENTAL CLASS E Pants, bib overalls, shorts and gaiters meeting minimum area requirements for background material and retroreflective trim. Class E apparel, however, cannot be worn alone to provide adequate visibility of workers. When Class E items are worn with Performance Class 2 or 3 apparel, the overall classification of the ensemble is Performance Class 3. RELAXED FIT Our relaxed fit jeans feature a traditional rise that sits at the natural waist. Relaxed seat and thigh offer more room for mobility, and the slightly tapered leg fits over work boots. UPF 40 RATING Ultraviolet Protection Factor - A rating designed for fabric and clothing that specifically measures the level of sun protection. UPF measures both UVA and UVB rays. 4 VISIBILITY APPAREL PRODUCT GUIDE

GLOSSARY OF TERMS AND DEFINITIONS HIGH VISIBILITY SAFETY APPAREL (HVSA) – Personal protective safety clothing intended to provide visibility during daytime, nighttime and other low-light conditions and meets the requirements of Performance Class 1, 2 or 3 as defined by ANSI/ISEA 107-2015 (High Visibility Safety Apparel and Accessories). ENHANCED VISIBILITY APPAREL – Garments designed to improve wearer’s visibility but do not meet the requirements specified in ANSI/ISEA 107-2015 because they are made of materials that do not meet the performance requirements or they do not have retro-reflective striping for nighttime visibility. PERFORMANCE CLASS – A category of performance defined by the minimum area of background fabric and retro-reflective striping. Design specifications for each performance class correspond with the needs of the user in the expected risk environment. BACKGROUND MATERIAL* – Colored fluorescent material intended to be highly conspicuous, but not intended to comply with the requirements of ANSI 107 standard for retro-reflective material. RETRO-REFLECTIVE MATERIAL* – Material that reflects and returns a relatively high proportion of light in a direction close to the direction from which it came. COMPLIANCE – Garments and materials (background fabric, combined performance material and retro-reflective trim) shown to meet the requirements of ANSI/ISEA 107-2015. CERTIFICATION (FINISHED ITEM) – Documentation from either a 3rd party certifier or the garment manufacturer demonstrating compliance with performance requirements set forth in ANSI/ISEA 107-2015. Manufacturers choosing self-certification must use the Declaration of Conformity provided in ANSI 107. 5
