I got the letter today, with included swatches of the bad and good fabrics. The new hi-viz is noticeably LESS bright than the hi-viz 2.0, the new fabric also feels heavier in density... The new (3.0 ?) hi-viz looks almost mustard color.

I plan to take them up on the recall, but not go for a hi-viz... I'll probably do a black body with red accents. The hi-viz was just too bright in real life, plus I'd seriously look like a banana slug in the new hi-viz.

Also, the hi-viz 2.0 showed soo much bug death. My suit looked like it had been sprayed by a dead bug gun. I didn't want to wash the thing, so I just let it ride... but seriously - it was starting to look kinda gross.
