    Reflective Sash

    I'm looking for a reflective sash that I can pull on over the head without a bunch of buckles and clasps, and also not cover up the 3 rear pockets on my jersey. Where can i find a good one?

    I use an amphipod xinglet. You can adjust the height so it does not interfere with your pockets. It does have two buckles for the part that goes around the waist, but I never use them - just pull it on over your head. http://www.runningwarehouse.com/descpage-ARX.html

    +1 on the Xinglet. Relatively lightweight, easy to use, and stays put.

    I believe that type is poor when wet.

    This type of reflective material should be better.

    I have Jog-a-lite ankle straps made from the same stuff and people commented positively about them.

    I'm looking for a sash (Sam Browne belt) made from the same material (in white).

    Has anyone tried the Mavic Vision reflective vest or the one that RUSA has in their catalog for 60 bucks?

    It's using the reflective stuff that doesn't really work when wet.

    I think I'd prefer something that packs smaller and doesn't also act as a windbreaker.

    I'm a little torn about the O2/RUSA vest. I would prefer safety yellow, orange just isn't as visible. I saw the MAVIC vests at PBP, I didn't think they were as visible as the O2 vest -- Jan Heine and others disagree with me.

    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.
