Oxford Hi Vis Active Bright Vest
This vest is bright, highly reflective, and very comfortable to wear! I am 5'6", 130 lbs. and measured around the fullest part of my jacket, with all the liners still inside, and came up with approximately 42 inches. So, I purchased the XL, as I didn't want a very snug fit, just wanted it to sit, comfortably and nicely, upon the jacket. It fit just as I wanted it to! I think the highly reflective stripping is situated in the best position, up and down. The only thing one might take note of, is, the zipper needs to be securely seated before one tries to zip it up, and care to make sure the zipper is fully down before you try to undo it to take it off. Totally, thoroughly satisfied!!!

Excellent Materials & Build Quality
This reflective vest is constructed using high quality materials that fit snuggly while wearing my LG Alpinestars Lucerne. I am 6'0 175 lbs and the LG size fits perfectly, though a little short like others have stated. At high speeds the jackets stays tight to the body and does not flutter around or balloon out. It is thinner than other brands so the materials dry fairly quickly. There is also a napoleon pocket that is great for quick access to ID's (military) that is not noted in the description or visible in the picture.
I highly recommend this product if you are looking for a formfitting, high quality reflective vest.

Warm Gloves down to 40 degrees F, at speed
Gloves keep hands warm to a bit below 40 degrees F and are too warm above 65 degrees and hands will sweat.
Fairly decent feel on grips and controls for a winter glove.
Minimal safety padding but not bad at this price.
No secondary wrist closure so they could slip off easily in a slide, this is the only downside I have noted so far.
Bought the 3XL so freeze out liners will fit (for comparison I wear an A* SP-1 size XXL).

Nice hi-viz vest
I'm 5'5", 115 lbs. and the MED fit perfectly over my armored bike jacket. I didn't find the length too short at all: most women probably wouldn't. Nice quality and pretty cute, if you can say that about a screaming neon safety vest...

Fits great. Snug, not tight.
I was looking for something hi-viz and was worried about getting a vest since they usually are loose fitting and flap in any breeze. This one fits just right. It's a snug fit, but not tight at all. I'm 5'7", 150 lbs and wear a Rev'It Ignition jacket (with back protection) and a medium vest fits just right. I don't have to unzip it to get into my jacket pockets. Nothing gets bunched up when I wear a back pack. Nice.

good quality but runs small and is intentionally stretchy-tight
Really like the good fabric, stitching, and viz with this vest. Good zipper too. It's made with a stretchy hi-viz yellow fabric for the daytime and has well-placed reflective panels for night riding or those short winter days. BUT... it runs true to the sizes they list -- and those sizes are if you want a compression (aka "tight") stretchy fit. I'm a female, 5'4", 120 lbs who wears a woman's size 4 or 6 at most. The men's size Small in this vest fits over my trim-fit leather riding jacket, but it's stretchy tight. It would not fit if I wore any fleece layers under my riding jacket. I am returning the Small and re-ordering a Medium. Also -- it fits short in the body (look at the picture -- it is very accurate - notice how the vest is not as long as his riding jacket). The armholes are correct and fall low enough, but the overall length is short. If you've got a beer belly, this vest is gonna be real hard to zip and will look as silly as a speedo swimsuit :-) It's a great, well-made vest and I highly recommend it.
