Spidi Certified Hi-Vis Vest
I had on this vest during a recent 350 mile round trip. For years, I have been riding with black motorcycle gear resulting in being cut off all of the time. With this high viz vest on, I observed drivers noticing me more and watching out when changing lanes. During my entire round trip, I did not get cut of once and drivers that almost switched lanes close to me quickly saw me and moved back into their lane. To sum things up, I highly recommend this product. I will mention however, when I hit passed 100mph on the highway the velcro came undone except the top one. I had to stop my motorcycle on the side and fix the vest. I traveled at traffic speeds without any issues through 99% of my trip.

Don't know I have it on.
This product makes me feel more visible in my urban environment in Seattle. Since I will lose a confrontation with a cage, I want to be as visible as possible without having to wear a dayglo coat. This is as close as I could go as far as being conspicuous. I have been on bikes for 50+ years and still ride a '14 BMW R1200GS. In fact I courted my wife of 50 years on a Honda 125 Benly Super Sport road racer. Excellent product.

For the safety-conscious in you.
If you are sporting all-black, and still want more attention..from careless motorists out there, that is! Then, Spidi Hi-Vis vest, is it.
Superior design, quality built, and excellent fit.

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.
