I live in the Bay Area and I ride my bicycle every day after work. I found that sometime it is difficult to see bicycle riders if they dressed in black. So I want other drivers to see me when I ride my bicycle. I was shopping around the local industrial supply stores and found their safety vests are rather flimsy and the reflective stripes are not too good, plus they are either snap button or Velcro front. I went to Walmart.com and saw this vest and also read the reviews and bought the vest. I am very happy with the purchase because it was much better than I expected and others I have seen. The material is medium grade polyester and the REFLECTIVE stripes are made of 3M reflective fabric and brightly visible when light shined on it. I also like the zipper front and the three pockets. One of the pockets is on the inside with Velcro so I keep my wallet in there when riding. The size is generous so a bit loose. It is cold here so I wear two layers and a large hooded sweatshirt as a third layer, then the vest outside and it was still a bit loose. The vest I bought was Men Medium. Consider I normally wear men Large. The reason that I ordered the Medium size was because I already saw the sizes at the industrial supply stores so I knew they made them BIG! The vest is made by "Walls Work Wear". Well made!
