Guide patrons to make safety and fashion

Supporting the creators of a system for producing tailor-made jeans with reflective strips, the editors of a new fashion magazine, or the designers of an androgynous clothing collection are three examples of the projects you can wager on Kick starter, a platform for Make patrons and go shopping that is experiencing a great boom.

Fashion and innovation are two concepts that often walk together. That is why it is not surprising that a web that rewards originality is frequented by fans and professionals to hunt trends. In addition, betting on crowd funding also means saying yes to a financing system that turns its back on banks. Something that has a lot of pull if we consider the popularity they have enjoyed since Lehman Brothers and company panicked the world.

In essence Kick starters operation is extremely simple: you propose an idea that you want to finance (there are exceptions), the amount of money needed to put it into practice, explain what your patrons will get in return based on your donations and make a presentation of Your project as clear and beautiful as possible. You should keep in mind that Kick starter is in the United States, although there are ways to present a project from Spain.

Whether seeking to make a donation selflessly or to purchase a reflective product that has fascinated the procedure is simple. You only need to use your Facebook account to sign up for Kick starter and also have one on Amazon to make payments. That's enough to start looking for projects that interest you.

You can bet on those who have already obtained the funding they are looking for and are raising funds or not. In the latter case if the project at the end of 90 days has failed to raise enough money, you have the money that you have contributed. You should also keep in mind if you want to get a product that the project managers send out of the United States. Something that happens in many cases adding a supplement to the amount requested.

Keep in mind, however, that Kick starter does not offer guarantees on the projects it hosts. Some have ended in fiasco after achieving the amount that was marked as goal. But you do not have to be too scared. It is not often that happens. In any case if you have doubts you can always ask the promoter directly anything before making any donation. It may also be well to goggling a bit to gather information on those submitting the projects if you are going to make a large donation.

Here are three examples of fashion proposals that have not yet achieved the quantity that have been marked and that allow shipments to Spain. Reflective clothing is good for riding or skating. If you are horrified by the typical reflective vests you can try to get one of the T-shirts from the Fix project. They are ideal to make yourself visible while riding on bikes or skates. As its design is attractive you can also wear them for the day. You have less than 10 days to support the proposal and for 55 dollars to get a shirt (with shipping costs to Spain included).

Some of the projects are very reminiscent of the teleshopping ads. That is at least what we have suggested stockings with socks built to wear Boo tights high boots. You can get a pair of them for $ 25 plus the 5 that costs shipping to Spain. Although, yes, at the moment does not go very well. They have only risen just over $ 3,000 and have to reach 25,000 by August 23rd.


Reflex tape test for the best and the worst

The lighted mobile or the white T-shirt will not save your life on the night road. You'd better buy reflective elements, ideal for the widest bands in bright colors. But there are huge differences between them - the ability to reflect light is the best of them, compared to the last sixty times.

The Pilot Formula 1 takes about a quarter of a second before it can respond to an unexpected impulse. The average driver is four times slower. When the evening is torn from work or disturbed by dense chameleonic, its reaction time is still significantly prolonged. Now imagine what happens if a chauffeur in such conditions and moods encounters the "invisible" pedestrian road.

For example, over 130 pedestrians died on the roads last year, 60 percent of which were killed at night. Therefore, according to the amendment to the Road Act, pedestrians are obliged to wear so-called retro reflective material as of February when they move on an unlit road outside the village in the dark, dark, in heavy rain, snow or in the tunnel.

If your life depends on a plastic bracelet, which is roughly the same as one black coffee on the bottom, the question is: Are all of the same quality?

Therefore, the MF DNES Test has tested 26 reflective tapes together with BESIP. We bought them in different places - in shops, post offices, gas stations and e-shops. Measurement of the retro reflection, the intensity with which the tapes reflect the light, was undertaken by an accredited laboratory of the Center for Transport Research.

Most of them are bright yellow

At first glance, tapes at both ends of the qualitative scale are virtually the same - light green, plastic, self-winding. "In fact, it's not the color of the tape, but the amount and density of a special glass mass that provides a reflection of light in the tape," explains the principle of BESIP Martin. However, it is difficult for the layman to know.

The first advice on how to properly choose a reflective tape is, according to the Painter, "Be careful if the tape complies with the standard."

In mind, the standard is EN 471 or 20471. Look for the tape or the enclosed instructions. However, as the test showed, the quality of retro reflection does not necessarily have to be directly related to the quality of the information given. That is why the Farer recommends considering color.

"We recommend the color most bright yellow that is best visible and red or green," says the BESIP chief. Although the red color of reflective elements conforms to a technical standard, it is also better to choose the lightest shade - which is also confirmed by the test results. There was no red or even orange tape in the first half of the ladder, but the last eight had a color of just five.

"The ideal is white and silver, where no color is applied to dampen the reflection. The color will partially absorb the light that falls on it, so the darker the strip will be, the less it will shine, "explains the consequences of physical laws Lukas of the technology company 3M, which deals with the development and production of reflective materials.

The third advice when selecting a tape is quite practical, namely to try to get the widest reflective strip. And when you have the option, choose a predicable dealer for your purchase. Ideal is to get the tape directly with the BESIP logo, the top three also received two products from the Czech Post offer.


A Nike Flash high visibility vest for safety

When you find out what this safety vest is made of, you will certainly be able to exclaim: What?! Well yes, it's really made of goose down! And that's far from being the only gadget that will surprise you. The "Flash" in the title means that you will not just run like a flash, but you will also shine. This is exactly what this vest is going to bring to you this year, if you have been worthy of the whole year, helping the road and not choking anyone.

The vest has on the chest and in the upper two thirds of the back of the classic tunnels filled with thermal insulation material. You know exactly the same with feather jackets. But they are not so busy here. The waistcoat is designed to cool well, but not overheat when it is cold. The manufacturer had to take into account the specifics of active movement at low temperatures. This also corresponds to the processing of individual tunnels. Their departments no longer provide classic sewn seams, but seams welded with state-of-the-art technology. These joints are wider and in the middle of each you will find laser-cut, regularly changing smaller and larger ventilation holes. On the back, the vests pass through the reflective fabric, but on the chest there are two layers that follow on like bricks - where the top layer has an insulating charge, the lower layer has ventilation holes and vice versa. Even though the chest area is ventilated, the wind will not blow your vest.

Upstairs, the vest is ended by a small collar, which may give reason to regret that it does not have a proper roller collar. However, it is also well-calculated - when the runner heats up, the feeling of cold on his neck is gone, and he can enjoy the pleasant touch of a small elastic collar that does not squeeze out anywhere. The vest also has elastic side panels, so you do not have the least fear of limiting your movement during the run. Its rear is elongated, so you will not get back from it even in a very dynamic run.

The vest is fastened with a zipper with two opposite riders, so it can only be unlocked from the bottom when you need to step up in the mountains or hills, for example, and you do not want to clothe your garment. I was just a little surprised at the beginning that I had riders on the other side than I expected (and really it was a men's variant). It's just a habit, so the manufacturer has all the zips in the men's models. Enjoy the water-repellent finish of the overcoat, which will give you a relatively lightweight overcoat in relative dry conditions.

You'll definitely appreciate the pair of zippered pockets. Each of them holds a small secret. One includes a stitched elastic hand strap and a double-sided zip. So the vest is just enough to stuff the cloak into this pocket, turn it on - and you have a light, practical pack of warm clothes on the road. In the second pocket you will find a small internal pocket for the MP3 player or a key from the house.

The upper two-thirds of the front and rear waistline prints a huge number of reflective segments. If something in the dark shines on you, you will surely see it from an international orbital station. It's just a shine like lightning. Different wide lines also make up a very interesting design element, which optically opposes even under ordinary daylight. The same motif is used by Nike for other garments this year's winter collection. A large reflective strip is added at the back of the back.

I wonder in vain what's best about this jacket. Dust Goose Quill? Dazzling Reflector? Can you pack it into a small pocket and put it on your hand? I cannot decide exactly why a person falls in love with this warm girlfriend. But know that you will not want to leave from a run-of-date rendezvous with her. Do not even run away.


more color for safety clothing, please

The Hamburg police in reflective vest want more colorful clothes to reduce accidents. Other topics of the newsletter "deepening of the Elbe": a fish restaurant and child protection

The rolling stock was "too described as historic," under the high susceptibility to failure suffer "the safety of travelers." And otherwise the conditions are obvious, as known from Internet forums unnerved train victim knows - of non-communication across treacherous track change games to broken toilets. Only in December, the German railway acquired the regional transport between Hamburg and Wasteland, after the previous operator, the Nord-Ostsee, all had drawn carriage for coupling problems from the market. This was followed by torturous swing replacement services, precipitating compounds, Minister Proverbs instead, and then came the German railway. But there are still problems. Even with the couplings. They would, so studied ndr.de for months. Why so long? "Only when we know the cause, you can find a solution," said a spokesman expressed as compared to the NDR.

Dear Reader from Barmen, you're right. And as for the dogs of the Isabel Concern: The dog owners wear reflective clothing whose pets not even allowed to freely run around in a corner in the future by the canal, are now collecting signatures against the arbitrariness of the district.

Reflective strips on school bags

Each month seven children are victims of road accidents, often due to lack of visibility. To reduce risk, the Road Safety wants the reflective bands must be included in the binders of small schoolchildren.

In France, children are often victims of road accidents, most of the time on the way to school. From their 1.20 m, they do not apprehend the danger in the same way as adults, and motorists do not always have the reflex to stop in time when a toddler up behind a parked car, or to retrieve a ball. According to theRoad Safety, 7 children under 12 years are killed every month and 12 children were injured and hospitalized every day, 4,295 children per year.

Zero children killed on our roads.

To reduce the risk of accidents, the Road Safety Association published a manifesto entitled "Zero children killed on our roads." She claims a VAT rate of 5.5% for car seats against 20% today, the spread of pedestrian collision avoidance systems on all new vehicles as well as the speed limit of 30 km / h on the edge schools, gyms, parks and public gardens, estates and conservatories. The association also asked the secure management of all pedestrian crossings with zebra and a stop line one meter before passing.

Fluorescent strips on school bags.

Finally, the Road Safety wants reflective strip on all school back to school bags and bags become mandatory. In winter, when night falls early, children are visible at 150 meters instead of 30 meters. ”Withany law, safety devices would be widespread, fairly large and mostly well placed in front, behind and to the side," says the newspaper Le Anne, President of the Association Road Safety. In Germany for example, the binders are regulated: the reflective tape should cover 20% of the surface of the bag and 10% of straps.

Finally, remember that accidents occur most often between 11 and 13 years old at the time of entry into 6th. It was during this period that young school children are the way for the first time, to visit their new school. Do not hesitate to make the trip together and make sure your child is well integrated all codes and road hazards before letting him make the path as a great.

People in reflective clothing talk about the Ministry

And we called it no MOE and Mari emergency rescue service (AMIS)) to our questions willingly and rescuers respond in detail to all acute and uncomfortable - open. Of particular interest are the stories of real cases. Honestly told about financial distress services: lack of equipment, supplies, and transportation makes itself felt. Usually, when people in reflective clothing talk about the Ministry of Emergency Situations, submitted him to the troop planes, helicopters, with the technique. Our rescuers that deprived - 4 radios and a navigator on the whole service ... Often, people do not work for money, but for the time off that has accumulated every 3 months. Since the shortage of people affected, they need help of volunteers and it is desirable at least in some measure prepared.

We hope that among us there are people who will respond and will be part of the search party Wild janitor. Another point, the search for missing people in the forest - is not a priority of the service, it is not an emergency situation, and the fact that you lost in the forest - it's your fault. Yes, that's so harsh truth of life. Let's go to the forest - tell your family where to go and why, that is take, wear reflective garment, bring food, water, matches, compass, navigation, mobile phone charged.

How to check the quality of reflective elements

Not all materials have the required quality. Many of the patches after a short washing operation and dramatically lose their protective properties. Some of the icons or suspension originally has such a low coefficient svetovozvrata that are just decoration, but does not provide the necessary security to the owner.

1. Assess the appearance of stripes. The surface of the reflective element should be smooth, responsive and smooth to the touch; it should not have cracks, scratches, abrasions, creases and folds.

2. Make sure the tape has been sewn, if we are talking about the clothing / backpack. The lines must be located at a distance of 2-3 mm from the edge of the tape. This is to protect the edges from damage patch when washing or dry cleaning.

3. High-quality reflective strip has only a fabric base. Check the foundation can be slightly tilting edge sewed stripes. The largest manufacturers of retro reflective materials commonly labeled fabric base, to confirm the quality standard of the tape. It is also testament to the quality can be a tag with the manufacturer's logo, which is attached to clothing, shoes, and briefcases. If there is a drawing of reflectors, it should not be smeared and / or erased.

4. At home, check the quality of already purchased "Reflector" can be wrong. Aim the beam at an icon or badge - if you are in the hands of high-quality retro reflector, it will shine brightly in the beam. It is important that retro reflector operated at any angle, it is necessary to rotate the icon or suspension in different directions, continuing to shine on them. The glow of the retro reflective material shall not be degraded or disappear.
