Spidi Certified Hi-Vis Vest
Excellent conspicuity, fits well, doesn't flap
Got a wonderful winter riding suit in a stealth color with very little reflective material. This vest is a cheap and effective solution. The amount of high-viz color and reflective tape makes it can't-miss. Easy to don and doff, and doesn't flap in wind. Packs down to nothing.

Simple, Packs Small, Does the Job
I own an Olympia Nova vest, great vest, but I was looking for something more minimalist and easy (read small) to pack. I don't need a full featured vest (e.g., pockets, liner) as it always goes over a jacket. A vest is a bring-along safety item for me to throw on in bad weather and when the sun sets. The Spidi fits the requirement. Good visibility/reflectivity, doesn't block air flow, and packs very small. I am 6'0", 170 lbs and bought a size Large. The vest fits perfectly over my Dainese leather jacket, size 54 (Ducati rides) and my Klim Badlands jacket, size Large (BMW GS rides). With both jackets there is still room in the vest for adjustment in-and-out. The only downside, or upside depending on you viewpoint is this is a minimalist vest, no zippers, pockets, liner, etc. Adjustment is via three velcro tabs on the front.

Bought this vest for foggy California riding and for commuting in traffic. Checks the block for lots of reflective/visibility, but isnt so big that its blocking air vents on the jacket. velcro tabs make it easy on/off, and its more cut/shaped size allow for easier fold up and storage under the seat.
If you are a vest wearer, this is a good option for something a little more svelte. Large size fits over my large jacket with room to spare.

Comfy and Stylish (for a reflective vest)
This is a reflective vest that is as visible as any other. What sets it apart is the cut. It doesn't have bulky shoulder areas (great for arm motion and more comfortable). For us ladies, I think the cut is very flattering. Yes it is a reflective vest, not a fashion item, but it looks good as vest go. A definite step up from other vest.

High visibility in a small package
I use this mainly when wearing my black leather jacket at night. It provides excellent high visibility but folds into a nice small package that can easily be carried under a seat until needed. For the extra safety it provides versus cost and convenience, it's an outstanding value.
I'm 6' and 225, the XL fits me nicely and easily shrugs on while wearing a stiff leather jacket.
