Lighted vest.

Does anyone have one of these? I have something very like it from another company and like it very much.

I do. I used the battery-powered lighted strips for about a week then decided it was overkill. I was really surprised at how bright they actually are. I now wear it un-powered. Being ANSI class II, it is very high vis. I wear it almost everyday.

Whether cycling or jogging at dusk or evening, I throw on a Amphipod Full Visibilty Vest. When I really want to be seen at night, I wear a LED Safety Vest. Better "Fred" than dead.

Make your own blinkie vests. Just sew on a 2" squire patch of heavy duty cloth with a button hole sewn in the middle. Then just clip the blinkie in the button hole. A friend has his wife sew a zippered mesh blinkie pocket on his vest.
