When the construction road crews look at you with withering envy, just give them a smile and a wave. They’re not mad because you’re out riding while they’re working. Or because your Honda Ruckus is righteous. They’re jealous of your safety vest.
Which, in and of itself, is a major victory for Corazzo. For years we dragged our feet and hemmed and hawed when people would ask us — no, beg us — to make an attractive reflective riding vest.
The cartoon bubble above our heads: “NO way!! Safety vests are friggin’ ugly!”
Then friends in the military started coming home from the Middle East. New regs demanded they wear “high vis” (bright florescent orange) when riding on the base. And how could we say no to them?
This vest is the result. Breathable ballistic mesh meets a solid piece of back armor. Adjustable waist tabs give it a fitted look. And 10 feet of 3M Scotchlite™ makes it very, very visible.
It’s the closest safety will ever get to sexy.
