Vis-vests are for construction workers and the determined old guy who rides his motorized wheel chair down Broadway to the grocery store.. You guys should get rotary lights to put on top of your helmets as well. Get a grip!
I wear a high viz jacket over my gear in the rain and most of the time at night.
-and yeah I've noticed cagers slowing down thinking I'm a cop; just have watch that they don't hammer the brakes when they see you in the rear view mirror. Was once waved through the border while wearing my jacket -wondered what that was about until I found there was a funeral for a cop in Seattle later that day.
I have the orange Icon regular one and it feels satiny... but it tends to "parachute" at highway speeds. I also have the mesh yellow one which doesn't have that problem and is much more comfortable on hot days. I'm sure the yellow one is also more visible.
Wearing either one, I can definately tell that drivers see me.
They come in two sizes: regular - for sizes small to X-large, and XXL to XXXXL.
