My O2 vest from PBP has shed most of its reflective material because I carry a bag when I commute. Kinda disappointing. I was thinking about sewing some Solas reflective tape over the worn out tape
I have a Mavic Vision vest. I agree with you - to my eye, high viz yellow is more visible than hi viz orange. The Mavic vest is still very bright though, and has much more reflective material than the sash I suggested above. I don't know how the Mavic reflective material compare with the RUSA vest, as I've never seen the RUSA vest at night.
I use the amphipod sash during the warmer parts of the year, and use the vest when it's colder.
