    Sources for reflective stuff?

    I have a hard time locating a store with a really good selection in reflective wear. Specifically I'm looking for something to put on my backpack as a vest will only cover my front.

    A screaming yellow helmet cover would be nice too, but they seem to be sold out everywhere.

    I'm not afraid of the Fred factor.

    If you would be interested in sew-on or iron-on reflective tape, you could ask Identi-Tape if they ship internationally: http://identi-tape.com/contact.html

    The 3M SOLAS (Safety Of Life At Sea) sew-on tape has a good reputation, and will reflect strongly even when wet. SOLAS is designed for long-range reflection in marine rescue situations. Other reflective tapes they carry

    Helmet Cover with Reflective Material

    Hans,

    My friend makes these great helmet cozies for keeping warm in winter, and a lot of them have reflective strips on them. On of my friends had a reflective robot sewn on (he loves robots). I think the custom design part might interest you.

    Take a look: www.helmetcozy.com

    Cheers,

    A

    +1.

    And learn to sew.

    Old straight plus zig zag sewing machines are dirt cheap. No more problems finding exactly what your looking for. Add/remove hooks, loops, straps, pockets, and reflective tape to whatever you want. I'm currently making a simple trunk bag custom sized to fit my Nashbar mini front rack.

    these guys carry a wide selection too: http://www.reflectivelyyours.com/
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)
