I go for long walks at night and here in San Francisco drivers don't watch for pedestrians as much as they should. Several times crossing intersections I've nearly had my feet run over by aggressive drivers. In order to keep myself safe I decided that looking like a big bike reflector might be the way to go.
Lo and behold, illuminite technology. This jacket is incredibly well designed with thoughtful touches like inner and outer pockets, a soft flap that covers the top of the zipper at the neck to prevent chafing, long sleeves and a long waistline for coverage during the extended posture when when cycling, mesh vents in the armpits, and a rear pocket, again for cycling. Everywhere I look on this jacket are quality details that speak to a much higher price point.
My expectations were in middle range for this jacket; I was buying it for the reflectivity, but received a very high quality and exceptionally well designed piece of exercise gear.
I did test the reflectivity using their instructions and the flashlight in my phone and I can attest it's super reflective.
The coral color is very pretty and will be visible during the day also.
