New Flag test pics!
This one is a definite winner! 1831 miles, highway and town miles with a good percentage of the miles at 60 to 70 MPH.
The tested flag (top pic) is only slightly dirty and slight fraying on the end but the color is still very bright and the flag still had many miles left on it but I needed to test other flags!
SuperKnit flags in action
Here are a couple of pics and a short video from a customer along with an email he sent:(used by permission)
Thanks for the pics retro, what a fun ride!
”I just bought two of your Premium SuperKnit OffRoad Flags with 4’ x3/8" poles. I mounted them to my truck and off I went. The truck tops out at about 55 MPH and the flags held up just fine. I understand that as with any flag it will wear out but they are the best I’ve used to date.
The right fabric for the job...
The SuperKnit fabric flags pictured above are one of the few flags I will recommend for highway vehicle use along with the Mesh flags, High Visibility and Cordura AditudeGear flags. Below are some pics and descriptions of flags tested in actual highway use on an everyday driven Jeep on a variety of roads from city streets to freeway.
Vinyl Mesh Pennant before...
Below is a mesh pennant on my Jeep Cherokee driven about every day for 3 months and 3300 miles! No other fabric has even come close to matching the toughness of this fabric. Along with being a tough and fray resistant fabric the flow through design of the fabric creates far less drag, easier on gas mileage, your whip and flag. Even though this is a mesh the fabric it is dense enough and bright enough to stand out even from a far distance.
I finally retired this flag at over 6000 miles, still fully intact. The only damage was a slight color dimming but still bright orange.
High Visibility Pennant testing
Below are pics of a HighVisibility orange pennant flown on my Jeep Cherokee every day driver. These two pics are after 3 months in the summer sun and over 1000 miles, many of those miles at highway speeds of 60 to 70 MPH. The color is slightly faded on the fly end but not one thread is frayed and it is a little dirty but I guess I would be too if I had sat on top of my Jeep all summer! This flag is still flying on my Jeep so I will update later.
Vinyl laminated fabric (Plasti-Cloth)
We don't use this fabric, I just wanted to show the difference the right fabric makes.
This ATV flag is made of a laminated fabric called Plasti-Cloth, the industry standard for outdoor pennants.
This fabric is used for many types of flags including off road pennants. After only 150 miles of mixed off road and highway use it is almost destroyed. Again this is above and beyond what should be expected of a cut edge flag.
I would not recommend this fabric be used for any vehicle that travels over 20mph. These plasti-cloth fabric flags are found on most low price ATV and Bicycle flags and do last well on low speed vehicles.

Flags make for the brightest booth at any fair!

The whole gang at Winchester Bay
This is the guy who inspired the flag "Danger vehicle may become airborne without warning"
As you see he has no flag... therefore the danger with no warning!
