Perfect piece for dark runs
This is a fantastic piece for morning or evening runs. I agree with the other reviews; if you are hesitant about sizing, go up a size. The S/M is perfect for me as a 5-ft-tall size 4 but it may feel too short if taller than average.
- You cannot hide in this thing. You will be seen!
- It's missing the gym-locker hanging loop! For a piece that doesn't get washed with every wear, it should have a loop to hang it up to dry between wearings.
Love this! It's so bright and makes you extra visible during nighttime runs. The material is stretchy and comfortable. I'm 5'4" and 120 lbs, the S/M size is fits over other layers in cold weather.

Brilliant - but more size options please
Great piece of kit but the other reviewer who talked about it being short in the body was right - I should've listened!! I'm an M/8 in Oiselle so got the S/M and while this is great on its own, it runs short in the body so hits me at belly button rather than hip as on other vests. I wore it for Ragnar Napa as did other team mates and we looked bright and fly! But possibly wishing I'd gone for L/XL (although I was vain and couldn't sanction the idea of being that size!!)

- too short in the body, more size range - XS//S, M/L, XL please

Nice and reflective. My only suggestion is that you should size up if questioning at all. I would prefer a little more room than I got, but it will still work over a layer. Will be great over just a sports bra for Ragnar in the summer! I also love the saturday color! It's so pretty!
- Reflective, nice material

I have the original version of this top. I wore this for the first time during my night leg for TIR (Texas Independence Relay) I got so many comments about how bright and awesome it is and a number of women asking where I got it. Being in Texas, I run super early to avoid the heat, and will wear this by itself (though it layers very nicely). Its bright, I feel seen and safe, even when i have to do an early stroller run with a non-sleeping toddler. I normally wear a M or a 6 and the S/M is perfect
- Bright, big patches of reflective material, breathable
- I wish it could be a little longer for when I wear it by itself.

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.
- Size up if longer 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.
- reflectivity, breathability
