Respro Hi-Viz Super Vest

- Two rear LED loop mounts

- Mesh Stow Pocket

The 3M Scotchlite material is reflective by night, and from the rear shows the classic Sam Browne pattern for ultimate visibility, with additional shoulder patches to improve visibility from the front in the usual cyclist's riding position
Reflective cycling gear helps other road users see you when visibility is poor. It's particularly effective if worn at eye level on your body such as around your waist or chest. Ankle bands are also very effective, as they move up and down with the pedal stroke and draw attention, as are fluttering tags on bags etc. The best thing about reflective gear is that it's always on and doesn't need batteries.
About the Respro brand
Respro product designer Harry Cole had "in your face" experience of exhaust fumes and city smog as a London cycle courier and this is still a significant and growing problem. In 1990, Respro launched the City mask, the first cyclists pollution mask and it is still in demand today. Over the last decade, awareness of air pollution has grown and now cyclists can choose from a wider range of styles and filters to accomodate more individual needs. Respro masks are supplied with replaceable filters and exhalation valves to keep the inside of the mask well ventilated.

Magazine reviews for Respro Hi-Viz Super Vest
Review from road.cc
Respro's High Viz Super Waistcoat has all the practicality of the gaudy day-glow variety but with greater style. The black background and warm orange base are supported by large sections of uncluttered Scotchlite and the Sam Browne belt really commands driver attention.
There's no denying the lion's share of £30 sounds pricey for a generic gillet but is very reasonable given it can be used for a host of other outdoor activities ranging from motorcycling through to horse-riding or simply walking the dog along unlit lanes. Sizing is generous without feeling baggy-just right for wearing atop winter layers-our large proved fine, with no restrictions worn atop thick cowhide motorcycle leather and in a cycling context it's spot on with technical jackets.
Zip fully home, there's been no annoying flapping at speed-even in very blustery conditions, although the fabric does absorb moisture-even in the air so a basic cotton tee/shirt could lead to autumn chills. Cut is good and although not cycling specific, is long enough not to ride up when hunched over the drops. Deep, sensibly designed mesh pockets front and rear capture keys, wallet, multi-tool, spare batteries and other essentials securely and without ejection-even through rutted lane and bridle path and the rear provides a very secure mounting point for an LED light should you prefer an uncluttered look to your steed.
Machine washable at lower temperatures, it dries naturally in around twenty minutes but isn't shower-proof. Available in children's sizes, it makes a great choice for making tag-along/stokers more visible especially as the nights draw in and while there are good designs for half the asking price, none can top the Hi-Viz Super for conspicuousness.
Pricey but easily the best Hi-Viz Gillet I've used.
