Dainese High Visibility Pro Vest
Fits very comfortably over my Speed Naked Perforated Dainese jacket & blends well. Looks good very hi vis. Originally I purchased this just to have for riding onto base, but it certainly doesn't constrict & now I'm not leaving the house without it. One of the reviewers mentioned purchasing a size larger than would fit without the jacket, that seems like an obvious choice but in order for the function to blend with a few layers on (writing this late November) I will fully agree (I'm also trying to stretch the underlying jacket to more than 2+ seasons). Can't say I notice it changing the airflow, so I'm making an assumption, but I think it'll be good for Spring & Summer.

Exactly what I was looking for! It's actually much nicer looking in person and it fits perfectly. I wear a size 42 Joe Rocket Radar Dark jacket and this just right on top of it. The fabric is much heftier that I was expecting and it seems very well constructed.

Superior product well worth the retail price
I have three other reflective vests (from different manufacturers) that I use for running, road cycling and for the bike (when I am riding in the dark unexpectedly.) This vest far outperforms those three other vests in all of the rating categories used here. I have a 42-inch chest and wear a Large sized jacket (ATGATT.) The XXL fits perfectly on top of my jacket and isn't binding. It's a head turner on the highway at night as well as on side streets. I'm definitely being seen at night. It's also not "another layer" so I do not trap heat while wearing this vest. Highly recommended.

Nice Vest from a great Brand
Its not often that you can pick up any item from the Dainese family for under $100. I looked at several options and this vest looked the most appealing. Originally ordered an XL, but then exchanged for a 2XL. I am a 48 suit size and the European cut was just too snug for me in an XL. I am not military, so the ID pocket permanently attached to the front is somewhat of a drawback, but for most could also be used to keep an id, spare $s,etc.
Overall great HiViz option at this price point and construction of vest is top notch

My Wife Says I look like traffic Police
This is a great product from Dainese. a little bit more expensive than Revit or others but worth the money. Style, comfort, and function make me choose Dainese. In the summer I still get tons of air flow over my Alpinestar mesh Jacket. I used to ride with Black Leather pants and Black jacket, a bit dangerous especially at night time. Now I can feel more visible, in fact two cars had been avoiding sudden lane change while I was line spliting in heavy traffic jam, maybe they though traffic police just behind them.

Great Fit & High Visibility
I needed a high visibility vest to keep me safer while riding in low light. This vest looks great and the medium fits perfectly over my size 42 jacket. Extremely breathable and functional. Form fitting and true to size. Expensive, yes. But with Dainese you get what you pay for. Well worth it.

Best hi-vis jacket out there
I need a hi-vis jacket to make it on base, but I didn't want the orange icon vest that EVERYONE else had, so I scoured Revzilla and came upon this. I'm really glad I got it. It's still not cool to wear, but its as close as you'll get to cool in hi-vis gear, plus I've been told that the giant glowing devil head really grabs people's attention if they're behind me with their headlights on!
I'm a medium, but I grabbed a large and it fits perfectly over my medium (size 50) jackets. Ventilation is great, even at the lowest speeds, I can't tell that I'm wearing it unless I look down. The card holder is good too, I just wish it was easier to take it out with gloves on because gate guards usually want to see both sides of the card before letting you through.
