REV'IT! Athos Air Vest
Great for getting yourself noticed !
This vest is awesome if your looking to get noticed. The hi viz color and reflective material work great and it fits snug due to the elastic bottom which is nice because it doesn't flap in the wind.
I have 2 negatives 1st there are no pockets on this vest and they cover the pockets on your jacket if you are wearing it over one. 2nd the stiching on mine was not the greatest but I had my mom redo it rather than send it back.

better than a construction vest; but costs more
This vest does it's job as advertised. The fit is very good; a little on the snug side which I wanted. I would not recommend getting a construction vest that flaps around in the wind. This vest has a tall zipper that keeps it close to my torso all the way around.
Visibility: There are times when I feel wearing this vest has definitely prevented drivers from turning / pulling out in front of me. For that reason, I recommend doing SOMETHING other than altering your exhaust to make yourself noticeable.
Negative: The fabric is already getting fuzzy after only a few months of use. Not a big deal to me, since my prime concern is being visible, but this might annoy you considering it is not an inexpensive piece of gear. Overall, though, I am satisfied and would buy this vest again.

Day and Night High Visibility with Ventilation, Style and Fit
The REV'IT! Athos Air Vest provides high-vis yellow for daytime and reflective stripes and logos for nighttime safety. Stretchy fabric helps to keep the Vest on the jacket when removing the the jacket. The Air Vest looks good, like it's part of the jacket. Mesh construction flows a lot of air.
- Stretchy enough to fit a bulky 3/4 winter jacket while fitting close on much slimmer jackets.
- Winter jacket is XXL, fall leather and summer mesh jackets are XL. I bought an XXL Air Vest and it easily stretches enough to fit the winter jacket but is not loose on the others.
Zipper is a little fussy but adequate. I don't understand why all manufacturers don't use beefy YKK zips but that's just me, I guess.
Highly recommended if you are are looking for that extra margin of safety through increased visibility in all conditions along with style, fit and comfort.

Lightweight & Comfortable!
I am so glad I ordered this vest! It is exactly what I was looking for - sized exactly right, comfortable and lightweight! I would definitely recommend the REV'IT Actos Air Vest to add some visibility for other drivers when out riding. Love it!!

Excellent hi viz vest
Probably the best looking Hi Viz vest on the market today. Paired with a Small phantom black Scorpion Hat Trick jacket, the vest looks like its part of the jacket, which in this case, is a good thing. Though I can't speak for how well it works in deterring blind cagers, I do belive that it makes me more visible on the road. The fit and finish are excellent, and though a bit pricey, I'd say this purchase was worth it. Highly recomend.

Eye Grabbing & Well Made
Medium size fit me perfectly at 5'8" and 150 lbs. I like the styling and the fit. It snugs up very well with no detectable movement at speed. It's constructed with quality material and looks like it will last for years on my work commutes. The only minor irritant is the zipper is reversed from what I am accustomed. I like the vest a lot. No regrets.

Athos Air Vest
I purchased the Athos Air Vest and am very impressed by the design and style and the quality of the materials and construction.
At previous track events I had worn the loaner safety vests provided by the organizers. They were cheap $10 or $20 safety vests that didn't fit particularly well, had lousy straps, and had essentially seen better days. I decided to buy my own vest that would fit better over my one-piece suit. The size X-Large fit perfectly over my Rev'It Stingray in a size 54.
The vest is actually a very attractive lime green color, has Scotchlite reflective tape incorporated front and rear and is very form fitting.
It'll be great both on and off the track and will probably be used more often than I expected on the street.
It was worth buying a more expensive vest and I recommend it without reservation.
