No your right it could be on a hat pants anything like that so no it doesnt say vest, the vest was a word thrown out there way back by legislatures. Most people figured it was easier to comply by just carring a vest with them rather than trying to stick tape every. The class of vest isnt listed that is what makes it confusing because most vest if you are going to go that direction isnt sold by square inches it goes by class, along the way a few folks within TP&W and other places said class 2 verbally, i believe this was derived because thats what the standards are through osha, mutco, usdot and texdot are. So simple minded as we all are we figure well hell we must be being held to the same standard. NOT!!!!! So there is the skiny, lots of misleading info including to and from myself we all know the word ASUME right.

Now to the other, if you think you cant or wont be ticketed under what i listed you may be out of touch with things that have happened in the last 20 years or so in texas, there is a pending case of a kid ridding in a car (not out hunting but ridding) that was ticketed for the wrong vest. So it can and does happen, sure he will win but his parents have to pony up the money to hire an attorney, do you know how many out of towners get ticketed but decide its cheaper to pay it than fight it???????????? its been a few
