All promotional products have the power to create brand recognition and awareness to
consumers. However, there’s always products that will create a greater impact.
In a recent Ad Impressions Study by ASI Central, the top five most influential promo
products in the United States were listed as follows:
- Performance Wear
- Health & Safety
- Polo Shirts
Here at Vantage, we carry top-selling products in all five of these categories. Today,
we’ll dive into why you should be considering them as fundamental products to invest in
and the best pieces to do so.
Outerwear is a key item and has been identified by ASI as “the most influential
promotional product for American consumers.” Two aspects of outerwear that make it so
important are wearability and visibility. Typically, we’re always grabbing for a jacket
whenever we leave the house. Everyone has a staple outerwear piece that’s a go-to in
their wardrobe. A jacket’s wearability is way more frequent than a shirt or sweater that
someone may choose to wear every so often. The more frequent a jacket is worn, the more
it will be noticed.
Alongside its wearability, outerwear also has the most visibility on an outfit. As your
outermost layer, it is what people are always seeing. To make the most out of your
outerwear, consider some of these styles.
Perfectly packable, our Newport Jacket is great for travel and on-the-go lifestyles. Not
only is it waterproof, but also comes with a Zocket™ Pocket that allows the jacket to
fold into itself and become its own carrying pouch. This style also comes in a bright
range of colors, allowing for enhanced exposure.
Outerwear isn’t just limited to jackets; vests are a great way to layer without feeling
too bulky. The Mesa Vest is a fantastic option to consider, because of its sleek
silhouette and lightweight fleece fabric. It’s great to throw over button downs,
hoodies, polos, and even t shirts.
It’s no surprise that performance wear is a top category. Over the past few years,
especially due to the pandemic, athflow and athleisure garments have gained incredible
popularity. People are opting for clothes that provide comfort and mobility. For a look
that is both practical and stylish, check out some of our favorite pieces below.

Over two years into this pandemic, it’s safe to say masks have become a key component to
our health and wellness. They’re such a simple product, that make such a difference in
