Hi Viz Jackets..

Anyone put off by the price of decent Hi Viz Jackets may care to look at PRIMARK (UK)..

Just got myself a decent one which is weatherproof, breathable, looks good and cost £15.00 , well £14.68.
Wore it out in the rain yesterday.. sweet, nice and snug, no leaks and the heat buildup just wicked itself away..
If bright yellow is too much for your cool image then they also do a low key black one as well; they are under the name of BACKSWING which is part of their new golfing range of stuff..

Got myself a matching (in black) pair of pants as well, only £3.00 now you can't argue with that can you..

Sometimes when I go mountain biking I feel the need to Viz. I just stop, get off the trail, pick a nice-looking tree and Viz away. I've never felt the need to Primark, however.

A Hi-Viz jacket in the woods won't keep a hunter from shooting you.

It will just prove it was no accident.
