This wiki has been updated 11 times since it was first published in April of 2017. There's no reason a high-quality safety vest shouldn't also come with pockets, which allow you to keep writing instruments, cell phones, and any other tools needed for your job within reach at all times. The options we've selected feature the same bright, highly visible colors and markings as non-pocketed versions, but they let you carry around all sorts of things, freeing up your hands. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best safety vests with pocket on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

March 07, 2019:

Luckily for everyone working in construction, warehouses, and outdoor jobs, there are plenty of safety vests with pockets to choose from, but we still think the TR Industrial Class 2, the JKSafety Classic, and the Radians Heavy Woven are all top choices. They each provide excellent visibility and more usability features beyond mere pockets, and they're made well, to boot. Because these are somewhat heavy duty, we decided to add a less souped-up model, the Freemove Ultralight, for joggers and walkers who need less bulk and fewer extras. It's also made not to bounce around, so feel free to get out there and move in it. Finally, we decided to keep the DeWalt Surveyor Vest despite issues with sizing. True, it runs incredibly large, but it's loaded with practical embellishments and is made for the long haul, so it's still one to consider.
