Safety concerns are a natural part of many outdoor human experiences, across many jobs and industries including construction, mining, and emergency services, as well as many day-to-day activities such as biking, hiking, and running. One common consistency across these varied experiences is the need to see and be seen in low light and low-visibility conditions. Today, we are still relying on the reflective vest as the primary means for illuminating a person at risk – a product that came out in the 1970s and hasn't significantly changed in over 40 years – creating a need for safety products that matches today’s demands for safer work environments.

This void in the market creates an opportunity to deliver a better experience through innovative products; products that radically improve the safety of people working in risky environments, making them more visible and more productive by lighting their personal work area better. Doing so has the potential to increase productivity and reduce on-site accidents, which in turn would reduce worker compensation claims and lower insurance costs. For these reasons, ILLUMAGEAR founder and CEO Max Baker invented The Halo Light™
