Teknic Kicker Hi-Viz Vest
Great if you want to be seen
As someone who works on a military base, hi-viz clothing is a requirement for me. That said, I also get noticed far more often by other drivers, so it's a plus for me. This vest isn't a mesh vest, so it's not the most breathable, but that could be a plus or a minus depending. I got the 2/3XL (I usually wear a XL/44), and it fits pretty nicely over my jackets with a little extra room. I have a long commute, so I sometimes throw a hydration pack underneath it as well since I can fit it. The ID pocket is very useful, and holds my card quite securely. And honestly, I kinda like the way it looks over my jackets.

Very bright vest to wear over my jacket.
The vest is perfect. Very bright! I wear an XL jacket and ordered the XXL vest. Fits nicely over my jacket...any smaller wouldn't have worked.

Nice vest overall
As a military rider this fills the bill for my commute needs. It's made of a dense mesh, as some other reviewers have mentioned, but I don't find it uncomfortable. It has nice big openings in the arms/sides and feels really substantial. The cinch side adjusters are very nice. I usually order an XL, but the 2Xl was a better fit. Overall, it's a great value - especially if you can catch it on sale...

Nice but not the best air flow
This is a great vest, awesome visibility and features but the mesh is tight so airflow is minimal.

Good Mil Spec Vest
Good vest would say excellent all around but the ID holder is sideways. Vest also doesn't breath well through the vest fabric.

Great for visibility, good features.
Great for visibility, both day and night.
Could offer better air flow for summer riding, but knowing it's to mil-spec, guess mesh was not an option.

Love the vest
Love the vest, got it for $30, which is about half price. Unfortunately it's discontinued. :(

Simple, efficient and stylish!
I still can't believe I picked this up for under 30 bucks. I purchased the orange one and boy does it POP! If you're looking for a high vis vest without the construction worker look - this is for you. The waist portion is a high cut but that's a deliberate design by the manufacturer as most bikers like that. I rated the protection and durability as high only to make sure my review was great (as it should be). Obviously this offers zero protection - and it doesn't advertise anything of the sort. Thanks Revzilla!
