REV'IT! Hi-Viz Connector Vest
Good additional visibility
Good item for a little extra visibility and it works well with the Revit jackets.

Great vest made for some Rev'it Jackets.
I purchased the Rev'it Voltiac Ladies' Jacket. I love the jacket, and wanted a hi-vis vest that would fit the jacket properly without interfering with the vents and pockets. The vest does cover the back vent, but since it's mesh doesn't take much away from it. You can wear this over another brand's jacket, or over other Rev'it jackets that don't have the connectors, but this is made to work with the Rev'it jackets that have them. The only thing that I don't like, but will deal with, is that the back of the vest does not attach anywhere. So the only points on the vest that are attached to the jacket (if it's on a Rev'it jacket, of course) are the hoops in the front. Definitely a great purchase!

Great hi-viz option, much nicer than reflective construction vest.
Bought this to wear over my REV-IT Outback jacket for riding at night and in bad weather. Fits over jacket easily, is adjustable, and is easily secured to the jacket. Folds away compactly and comes with a small bag for storage. Nice materials but a little pricey in my opinion.

Meets my needs.
Purchase the vest to connect to the Cayenne Pro to enhance visibility. So far it works as designed and definitely increases the visibility of the upper body while on the bike. I like the connector system used by Revit.
I've not had it long enough to determine it's long term durability or how easily it can be cleaned of road grime.

Works as advertised
Good style and look. Works as advertised. Only issue is that material gets caught on the velcro of the jacket and deforms the material when you break it free from the velcro.

Great Visibility and Integration, Questionable Quality
Recently purchased this vest to attach to my Rev'It Vapor jacket, to increase my visibility towards drivers. Had been on the wish list for a while, and the recent Rev'It sale was a decent enough time as any to pull the trigger.
Very happy with the looks and design of the vest, and I was mainly interested in this vest because of it's integration with Rev'It jackets. I have a size large Vapor jacket, and the size large vest fits perfectly. I really like that I can take the jacket on and off without having to take the vest off as well. It's extremely light-weight and save for the reflection on my dash, I wouldn't even know it was there otherwise. The reflectivity is extremely bright, and it adds a little more peace of mind when riding in lower light conditions.
My biggest complaint is definitely in terms of the mesh material and how long it'll hold up. If it touches any velcro on your jacket, it will start to shred immediately. (I've attached a picture to try and show this, after 1 ride.) I'll more than likely be looking for some of the 3M scotchlite tape to put in the areas that are most prone to catching on velcro. Other than that, I'm very happy with the purchase.

OK, but could be much better
The vest is very visible, so it fulfills its basic function.
My problem with the vest is that it only has two attachment points. That is not enough to keep the vest in place when you are not wearing the jacket. The vest is always getting tangled up with the hook side of the Velcro patches on the jacket and when you pull it off it pulls threads out of the vest. So it doesn't seem like the vest is going to hold up very long.

The picture for the example is deceiving to what you actually get, when you open the box, you get this item in a little bag, you open up and to your surprised it is what you purchased just not like you thought, the picture shows and item of tight weaved material that is bright... the material in actually in fact the same kind of you get when you buy one of those cheap mesh safety vests at lows or home depot.
the elastic is good quality, the buckle is just a loop around velcro attachment its ok but not for long term, I modified it by adding a quick release buckle to prevent wear of the velcro.
The retro-reflectivity is Awesome!
This product fits small, buy at least a size larger. if not two sizes larger, I am usually a medium size guy and got the medium and its super small.
The reason I kept it is for back up on a ride that gets ruined by bad weather, gives me the ability to become much brighter to other drivers, also this is great for bike riding at night..
I think this is work about $20 maybe $30 at most.
