Yoshimura Hi-Vis Textile Vest Every now and then, when I need to dodge out of the way of a motorist talking on the phone, reading directions, eating, or all three at the same time, I wonder if I bear some responsibility for their obliviousness. Perhaps a really loud outfit would have prevented my nimble show of defensive riding, but then again, I'm not the one munching pizza and singing along with the Dixie Chicks.

Anyone commuting, especially now that short days leave you riding in the dim dawn and tinted twilight, must consider their ride as transportation rather than entertainment. The goal becomes arriving at point B. The Yoshimura Hi-Vis textile vest has no subtlety in declaring your presence when you wear it.

Constructed of breathable poly mesh, this is not for weather or abrasion protection, but to protect you from a cascade of circumstances beginning with ill attention or bad lighting. The 3M Scotchlite reflective areas reinforce the retina smacking power of the fluorescent fabric, either in yellow or orange.

A removable ID holder makes this perfect for anyone who must pass through checkpoints, present a toll pass, or if a cop pulls you over. The vest is designed to military specifications, so the utility of it makes sense.

A zipper front and elastic drawstring sides permit an adjustable fit. The very visibility might also rule this out for some riders, who prefer a more clandestine wardrobe, but then it's up to you to dodge on a dime. On the other hand, the Hi-Vis does offer a sharp, "Kill Bill" look.

Available for $30 to $60, it tends to run small and you may want to buy up a size, especially if you're going to wear it over other gear.
