If you are talking about the "Max 50" orange ones, just last month I went and picked up a box of 500 of them for work from a local industrial supply place.

my gear:

HJC CL-X4 helmet
Ear Plugs
Heavy carhartt sweater (soon to be replaced by actual riding jacket)
Moose Racing XCR pant
FOX Tracker Boots (Which I just broke a buckle off of and had a whole eaten into the shin plate by my chain in a recent crash, soon to be replaced by Tech 8's or some Gearne's)
