This vest definitely makes you more visible
From my bicycling days, I know that I am basically invisible to cars and the other predators on the road. It is even worse now with cell phones and other distractions. As a new member of the powered two-wheel world, I wanted to do anything and everything to TRY to be noticed. This vest helps. I have seen drivers start out and then stop - I can only assume that the bright yellow thing with the yellowy-green helmet finally pierced their attention window.
I am 200 lb and got the L/XL. Plenty of room for a jacket, but at its smallest fits my torso with no flapping. It does block some airflow, but I find that I like that at 30-50 mph (my usual ride) even on a 80F+ day. My durability rating is a hope - it seems well made with good materials and strong stitching. A pocket or two would have been nice. All in all, I am very happy with this purchase.

Good Solid Hi-Vis vest
The vest is really easy to fit over your riding gear. It has velcro fasteners on the side to help tailor the fit. I found it's easier to leave it on the jacket so you don't have to keep putting it on.
My only complaint is that I was hoping it was more of the lime green Hi-Viz color and less of a traditional bright yellow.
In either case, riding through dense traffic in NYC I have noticed a difference in the reaction time of cars. They are more likely to notice you. This has been especially helpful when commuting in the rain after the sun is down or before it's up.
