I like riding and running in a fluorescent jacket. I do not appreciate looking like a sack of spuds.
When I lived in the city and rode to work, a practical, large pull-over-everything commuter fluorescent jacket was perfect.
But riding for fun is different. I want a waterproof jacket which breaths, keeps out water, fits snugly, packs small and looks good.
In this Pearl Izumi I think I've found it. It's the Peal Izumi Elite WxB Waterproof Jacket in Screaming green which cost me £135.
The two-colour fluorescent panels of yellow and green looks good. (Well, I think so).
It is cut to fit when on the bike, which also works for running. That means it'll be a bit tight across the shoulders for everyday wear, but perfect when running and riding.
There are some reflective panels and pretty much nothing else. (cont)
