So I found the Joe Rocket 5.0 mesh jacket, and this does not look too bad in black/hi vis yellow. I hate to appear vain, but not sure if I can wear this on a red Duc. If its safety vs. style, you would think that safety should trump, but if that were the case, we'd all be riding around in bright orange and yellow gear, right?
Your opinions are appreciated.
I put his on my backpack when I ride: http://www.dontgethit.com/rebewiqurebu.html
I wear this over my jacket. Doesn't obstruct airflow: http://www.dontgethit.com/rehawbe.html

Recently, I've also put some fluorescent yellow reflective stickers that can be purchased from REI. Thinking about getting a fluorescent yellow Arai.

I also have a pink Vanson Star jacket that I low sided on back in the Spring, but it's still good.
I tell people I've hit the ground before and don't need any help.
