About a month ago while out walking one morning, I saw a bicyclist wearing a solid high-visibility yellow jersey -- it just about ripped my retinas out.

I know these kind of high-vis articles of clothing don't have much street cred and aren't likely to earn much in the way of 'props' from fellow cyclists, but I picked one up anyway. The one I got is a wind-breaker, and I wear it on my daily 9 mile commute. I feel pretty naked without it now. It's brrrrrrrrrrrrrrighhhhhhhhhttttttttttt.

Since my Maj is the high-speed Charcoal Silver (which does blend in with it's surroundings quite a bit, despite it's ultra-high speed asset), I need the high-vis yellow more than some of the slower (but more visible)colors, especially the Galaxy Blue and Candy Red Majesty's... which are notoriously lethargic. You guys have my condolences.

Photo's to come.

I wear the ICON mil spec vest in the hi vis lime yellow. I feel a lot safer wearing it and really don't care what it looks like.

I just use the standard high-vis construction vest (w reflective tape) and simply add additional velcro and snaps to keep it tight at higher speeds.
I already wear a yellow riding jacket, but add the vest at night or low vis conditions (aka rain).

the vests are great, especially in cool weather... the jacket must have five times as much fabric showing -- its ultra visible.
