Which Caribee product is right for you?

Caribee USA is proud to offer a wide range of Hi-vis products to meet your safety backpack needs and ensure that when you cover your hi-vis vest, you remain easily visible and meet or exceed workplace safety standards.

Hi-vis Backpacks

Mineral King

Our most popular Hi-vis backpack is the Mineral King (pictured below). It holds up to 32L, with dimensions of 19.5x12.5x8”. As the name says, it’s popular in the mining industry, along with railways and other construction sites.

 The Mineral King is Hi-vis in bright orange, and ANSI/ISEA compliant reflective strips on it. The backpack is set up with a comfortable padded bio-harness, and straps that attach to the sternum and hips to secure firmly. For increased capacity and utility, the Mineral King has a front pocket that holds a helmet, a side mount pocket for a radio, Molle style hook and loop attachments for ID, and additional pockets for all your small accessories on the jobsite. The bag even has space for a 2 or 3L hydration pack if you need one in your kit.

 If you need a rock solid, fully featured, high capacity backpack, to help keep you safe in the mines, or any other job, the Mineral King backpack from Caribee is a great choice.


Next up in the Caribee Hi-Vis Backpack range is our Pilbara Backpack.

The Pilbara, available in Fluorescent Reflective Orange or Yellow, is recommended as a general purpose hi-vis backpack for construction and other worksites, it can even be used for mining and railways, but isn’t specialized for those uses like the Mineral King.

 The Pilbara is the largest backpack in our hi-vis line: a 34L capacity with dimensions of 17x13x9.5.” The large reflective X-pattern on the back pulls maximum visibility, using ANSI/ISEA-standard reflective strips, for outstanding visibility on the back panels—no worries about cutting visibility by covering one’s hi-vis vest. The backpack’s main chamber even has a dedicated reflective flap with an additional safety panel also featuring an ANSI-reflective pattern to keep you visible.

 Our backpacks are built with ergonomics in mind both ease of wear and ease of use, and the Pilbara is no different. In order to aid wear, the backpack has lumbar support, an air-flow harness system (also reflective) and a hip belt. Carefully constructed with an adjustable internal divider panel, the Pilbara has two separate internal zippered storage compartments, along with two outside side pockets for storage or bottles.



The final safety bag in our Hi-vis backpack range is the Calibre High Visibility Safety Backpack.

The Calibre is the smallest non-hydration Hi-Visibility backpack we offer, at 26L with dimensions of 16.5x12x8”, but it maintains the highest standard of Visibility, and still has plenty of capacity. In Australia, the Calibre is especially popular with transport workers.

 The Calibre has a large X-pattern of reflective strips across its fluorescent orange shell for visibility. The bag comes with the comfortable Action Back Extreme harness system. The main compartment makes organization easy with its built-in pockets. Even more storage capacity is added with a front panel and side-mounted zippered panel.


Hi-visibility Hydration Packs

Caribee offers two distinct Hi-visibility Hydration Backpacks.


The Nuke is the larger of our offerings with a 3L capacity. The Nuke can be safely and effectively used in any worksite environment from Mining to Construction. The Nuke contains a PEVA hydration reservoir, which is BPA, Phthalate, and PVC free. The Nuke is fully insulated from tube to reservoir to ensure minimal interference from external temperature conditions.

 The Nuke complies with the same ANSI visibility standards, in either its fluorescent yellow or orange colors and reflective strips. For ease of wear and use, it has our Action Back Extreme harness system, with a quick release for fast and easy removal while wearing other safety gear or bulky jackets.



The Caribee Stinger Hi Vis Hydration Backpack is our smaller Hydration Pack. The Stinger is available in fluorescent orange or yellow with reflective stripes to ensure high visibility.  Offering a full 2L (67oz) reservoir, the Stinger adds pocketing for a phone, keys, or small accessories. While being safe for any jobsite, it’s also a great choice for hiking and cycling. Like the Nuke, it comes with a BPA, Phthalate, and PVC-free reservoir for safe drinking. The Stinger comes equipped with the Action Back Extreme harness system for comfort and ease of carrying.

Gear Bags


Need larger capacity that’s still highly visible? Caribee offers the Century Safety Gear Bag.

 The Caribee Century Gearbag is a Hi-visibility orange duffel with x-patterns of reflective strips on each end, perfect for carrying additional equipment or materials into any jobsite where you need a hi-visibility bag. The Century has a total capacity of 42L and dimensions of 23.5x12x12” Like all of our bags and hydration packs, the safety duffel is fully ANSI-compliant.
