Has anyone tried the Illuminite stuff (including the Performance-specific jacket?) I really like the HiViz green color (supposed to be even more visible than the flourescent yellow that is so common on bicycle wear). Does the Illuminite treatment wear off over time?

Right now I'm using a Pearl Izumi Zephyrr. It's nice but I hate not having a back pocket. I also have an Eastern Mountain Sports "Thunderhead" jacket which has pockets all over the place, removable hood, and pit zips, but is jet black (got it on clearance so I couldn't be picky).

I use my stuff more as a windproof shell for cooler weather, as I generally avoid riding in the rain. I can wear the PI in the depths of winter and just layer under it.
