Fly Fast-Pass Hi-Visibility Vest
Very well made product
I was looking for a well-made, reasonably-priced, hi-viz vest to go over my black flow-through textile jacket, and I'm very pleased with this product which meets these. The fit is very good, and the pockets on the chest are handy. When it's on it looks like an integral part of the jacket. The mesh in this is very fine but still allows air flow. The yellow fabric is very bright. I love the American flags on front and back! The only improvement I could wish for would be reflective striping on the upper back rather than the lower back, as the view of my lower back is blocked by the storage trunk on my bike. Highly recommended, though.

Great Fit and Comfort in a Hi-Viz Mil Spec vest
I have another Mil-Spec vest in orange. I needed one in green for specific rides. A friend recommended this one so I ordered it. Fortunately I live near enough that I got it in two days with standard shipping. I like the side adjusters better than my other vest. It fit well over several laters (long-sleeve tee, shirt, leather vest and leather jacket) and had plenty of additional adjustment left. I like the color and the amount of reflective material. I would make this my first choice if I was shopping for a Hi-Viz vest.

This vest is very bright. I like the detachable velcro pocket and ID pocket. I wear it over a mesh jacket and it definitely cuts down on air flow. It isn't as breathable as my jacket but it's not terrible. Being a little hotter than usual beats being ran over.

It's a mil-spec vest
It's bright, it's got a place for your ID. Really, there's not much too it and no reason it shouldn't be like 10 bucks, but whatever. It goes over your ACU's or Cammies or whatnot. It's bright. It holds your ID. There is no other reason to get this. But it works.

Have to wear it for work, but I don't hate it
I have to wear this while riding at work. That being said the ID holder is great for getting in the gate it's very adjustable with the Velcro straps and has extra pockets. I would even bring this along a a big trip if I knew I was going to have a lot of night riding.

Excellent vest! Does what it's designed to do!
I'm military, and I needed a vest that would allow easy access to my ID when accessing the base. Digging it out of my pocket wasn't going to cut it. Fortunately, this vest has a detachable ID holder over the left breast pocket for easy ID access. I use the breast pocket to store my cellphone for easy access as well. One of the features this vest has is its ability to fold into a pouch located on the back. There are no instructions on how to properly fold and get it into the pouch. Took me a few minutes fooling around with it to realize that it's much easier to fold if you take off both removable chest pieces! Once I finally got it folded in, I squeezed the ID card holder in on top. The removable pouch, especially if you have stuff in it (garage opener), will not fit properly. The vest fits very well, and it contains straps to adjust for a perfect fit.
Overall, great vest, but the folding pouch could have been done better.

This vest has turned out to be a good purchase.
Construction is durable. The vest is highly visible in the day, very reflective at night. The pouch (with the US flag) has come in handy for storing things like State Park Pass, Passport, small amounts of cash, for making park access and border crossings easier. Easier than digging out a wallet anyway :)
I did only give it 4 of 5 for breathability. While a breathable mesh type fabric, it is a closed knit mesh and doesn't breath as well as a more open knit mesh would. Granted a more open mesh may not be as durable. There is always a trade off.

AS FAR MILITARY SPEC VESTS MUCH BETTER BUILT THAN ROCKET JOE. CHEAPER (FELL APART IN LESS THAN A YEAR ) GATE ID POCKET IS CONVENIENT
