- Brooklyn, NY
I bought this for running in the dark in NYC, as well as for trails, but I have also found it very useful for biking in the city. Having the additional reflective panels makes me very visible to vehicles, other bikers, and pedestrians. The top is light, isn't bulky (fits easily into my bag so I can take it along with me to work), and fits over my tops easily. I highly recommend this for anyone who wants/needs to be seen.

PERFECT for early risers.
I purchased this in a S/M in the black color. It's incredible. I didn't even realize this was a clothing item I needed, but now it's indispensable. Granted, probably not one of my Oiselle items that will move into casual wear (haha) but it's super breathable, makes me crazy visible to passing cars, and once it's on, I don't even remember I'm wearing it.
- reflectivity, comfort
LOVE this vest, the design, and reflectivity/details. Tops I am 6/8/10. Tried the SM/Med, was too short for my liking in my torso, yet still loose enough to wear a tank underneath. Will order in L/XL for better fit to cover my torso.

Safety First, with Style
I have never been much of a reflective item wearer, but with the dark Seattle mornings, I decided it was time to take the plunge and get this for safety reasons. I was unsure if wearing it over a long sleeve would leave me feeling like I was suffocating on runs, but it performs extremely well. The side pocket is an extra plus for holding a key or gel!
For sizing purposes, I am 5'9" and weight 135 and got the S/M. There was still a little extra room, but with the drawcord to cinch it at the bottom, it was perfect and did not move at all.
