About Us


Safe My Mate™ is an outdoor safety apparel startup, that strives to increase the visibility and the safety of South African athletes and outdoor enthusiasts .


Our Story

Where It All Began

Founded by mother and son duo, Debbie and Matt Stopforth, Safe My Mate™ offers high visibility reflective apparel and accessories that combine functionality with comfort and safety. As ardent outdoor sports enthusiasts themselves, the two are well aware of the perils of road activities and the need to take adequate safety precautions that can aid in protecting yourself and others. To this effect, they’ve created a range of simple apparel – ideal for walkers, cyclists and runners alike – that provide wearers with high quality protection, helping to ensure that no matter where or when you are out on the road, you can be assured of staying safe and bright!

Recently joined by childhood friend and next door neighbor, Chris Welsh. Safe My Mate is starting its next chapter.
