Firstgear Mesh-tex Dayglo

Kinda a toss up between posting this here or under "safety"...

This "color" was no available when I bought mine, the very popular Firstgear Mesh-Tex mesh jacket is now offered in a high vis neon yellow called Dayglo :

These jackets are do a good job of keeping you cool in hot weather, have a zip out liner and usable pockets. Now with the added feature of high visibility they are for sure worth the moolah.

Nice jacket! For visibility, I believe that high vis yellow is the best even in dawn and dusk light. Sorry to break out in a golf story, but that color reminds me of a late day on a golf course when it was getting dark and I joined a couple other guys to play the last hole. Since it was getting so dark we all dug in the bags looking for balls other than the white we had been using. I pulled out a yellow one and it happened that the other two guys grabbed blaze orange ones. It was a par three and I hit mine first and we saw it land on the green maybe 20 feet from the flag. The other two guys hit theirs and we heard them hit but couldn't see them so we didn't know where they went. We walked all around the edge of the green, in the rough, down in the ditches, everywhere and couldn't find their balls. They decided to just blow it off so I went up onto the green to put my ball and both their balls were on the green and I nearly stepped on them before seeing them, but could still see mine across the green. So I have always preferred bright yellow for visibility...

Holy Hi-vis batman! You sure that doesn't, in fact, blind other motor vehicle operators and thus make things more dangerous.

I will have to check my local dealer to see one of those in person.

I've been wearing HiVis for years before it became vogue. Now we see it in T's, vests, coats, and even helmets.

Carhart makes a great HiVis T that's really bright and under $20.
