Bright, serviceable vest, with useful features. Thanks. I got it for cycling. I imagine it’s attributes are tailored to cool water sailing where, once wetted ,the sailor’s core may be somewhat less heat-losing. Hey this may fit with an inflatable emergency vest like ‘Mustang’, otherwise reflect-a-vest just makes it easier to find a body.
It’s just barely ‘packable’ but is about 20% heavier than other vests I compared. Black side- panels v v breathable, while the beautiful reflective material on the front/ back is v occlusive, v wind stopping and probably water RESISTANT, but for biking I prefer a little breathable front and back in a vest garment, since vest alone is rarely used by me in rainy cool conditions. Some of us sweatsters might find this shoulder venting less than optimal during hard (subjective) exercising. For this cyclist, I wonder if upgrade to a 2-way front zipp might be useful for more control of ventilation in combo with this wind-stop front/ back ventilation configuration.
Premium price currenlyt borne by this novel, functional beauty is understandable.
