Reversible Jacket?

--I want a reversible lightweight jacket for cycling. One side should look like an ordinary decent unobtrusive jacket suitable for casual wear when not riding. The reverse side should have bright neon colors trimmed with reflective tape for high visibility while on the road.
Does ANYONE make or sell such a jacket?

Well if it is not, try awdirect.com and look at RF-38 which looks similar and AP-61 which costs a little less but doesn't have the reflective striping.

My solution to the same problem has been to use a very nice windbreaker weight goretex jacket I got at a very good price on clearance and wear my regular lime mesh reflective vest over it for visibilityrather than pay premium price for a specialty item. If I need more warmth I add layers under the jacket.
