Orange VS. Yellow

picking a shirt/vest/jacket and truck/trailer color for my new logo and branding. This will be the color of our hi-viz shirts, truck, and open trailer color.

Currently using yellow(safety green). Question is, what looks more industrial, and what do YOU like better overall? Orange or yellow, what sticks out more aswell??

High viz green is what we wear and it not a natural color unlike orange that can blend in during the fall.

Same thing what I wear, or as the print shop called it, safety yellow.

I have noticed that yellow jackets seem to like that color more as well.

I asked Yellow trucking why in the world their vehicles were orange. They said they tested it and it was the best visible in fog. So honestly I think the burnt orange would look very nice.
