Proviz have become renowned for making unbeatably bright reflective jackets. Their original, the Proviz Reflect360, is so bright it can light up a rider like a beacon on the road.
The only problem? They’ve not always been considered the most fashionable or breathable of jackets. Step forward: new options for 2016.
Proviz have expanded the range, with the ‘Switch’, a reversible garment that holds visibility in prime position, and the ‘Pixelite’ which sill features bright fabrics but will appeal to those after something a little more understated and indeed sweat-friendly.
We sent both jackets to contributor Adele Mitchell to see what she made of them…
Proviz Switch Cycling Jacket
This is a dual-layer, reversible and waterproof jacket designed to be worn with the neon yellow visible for day, then worn inside out when it goes dark.
Whilst this fabric looks grey under normal light, it actually utilises millions of highly reflective beads that make it quite astoundingly visible in artificial light: you literally glow all over.
