This is being sold as an "MTA Vest with Clear Pocket" but I have never seen any NYC MTA employee wear this. Maybe it's not NYC MTA? Help me out here!
OMG. Look at this reflective bike get-up.
If you don't want to mess with spray paint, here's a more DIY option that involves reflective microbeads.
Last year, Volvo made a huge splash online with the announcement of "Life Paint", a can of reflective spray paint that could be used virtually anywhere as a quick safety measure to make sure you are seen in the darkest of circumstances.
Despite coming from a car company, the spray paint was hailed as a way for cyclists to protect themselves while riding at night. The promo video (below) was pretty awesome and immediately generated a ton of interest despite the product only being available on a "trial" basis in 2 UK bike shops.
But by now, the trial must be over right? Where is Life Paint? Where can you buy this?
Look at this thing. It's reflective. How cool is that? What a shame that they're closing their NYC store... :(
