A reflective vest all can love!

This vest will get you noticed!

The hipsters will hate it, in an ironic sense.

That really isn't far fetched, especially if you can crochet.

Looks a little too pricey for $80. Compared to $10 for a lime yellow vest with 2 inch wide reflective stripes on it at the hardware store, and $5 for reflective tape at WalMart, not a good deal.

Don't even need to crotchet - those spoke reflectors have a slit down one side, just cut to size and "clip" round the string vest.

I like the idea for the summer. A lime green vest is excellent but they get real hot in the summer. In fact, I prefer the lime green vest over this fish net but only during the winter fall and spring.

For $80, I want a active lighting set up, not some strips of reflective material.
