The Lightning Vest is one of the coolest bike accessories I have seen in a while! It is a hand-netted, highly visible safety vest made from a custom developed 3M reflective material. It can be worn all year, day or night and layered over jackets or t-shirts. Neck opening is wide enough to pass over your helmet and netting is large enough for your hand to access your pockets. It is lightweight and compact enough to fit in your pocket without ever getting tangled. Brilliant? YES!
For $80: crazy.

Coincidentally was just talking with my colleague about high-vis sports gear. I need to make some investments for winter biking – thank you!

Agreed a great item, but $80!

$80 is nothing for something that is locally made by an artisan.
It’s a great design at the true cost of its value. I wear mine : )

Search 3m spoke reflectors – buy a pack of these and a string vest – similar result for less than half the price.

Where do I buy one of these? They are awesome. But if I click on the picture above, the link takes me to a rubbish imitation vest, which is three times the price. Boo Hiss
