Let's just say I'm a wary of marketing ploys.

1st year of commuting, don't remember
2nd year of commuting, best color was yellow
3rd year of commuting, best color was orange
4th year (this year), best color is now green --->Obviously one of these colors is the best.

More than likely the best outfit should address:

* Color for day to differentiate between people standing and working in one spot and those who are moving (like runners or cyclists)
* Color for dust, fog and rain
* Color for night
