BSAR hi-vis softshell jackets were first issued to members in 2013. They complement the BSAR hi-vis safety shirt, beanie and cap.
These jackets were provided through the funding support of the JJ Gardiner Trust, via the Alpine Search and Rescue Victoria club, the Victorian Department of Justice, and Bushwalking Victoria. BSAR is very grateful for the generous support that enabled its members to be so equipped.
The jackets are durable, showerproof and provide good insulation. They are also suitable for use in alpine environments.
