Hi-Viz stick on or iron on Patches for textile?
I've got a used textile jacket from an inmate for cooler weather riding which also puts be on the road more in the dark and twilight.
Plus this coat suffers a bit of the right shoulder rash from the collar tab velcro
rubbing, likely when the collar was left open in warmer conditions.
Some small patches if hi viz might be handy if I could find something that would adhere.
I've had decent luck with raincoats and even my Frogg Toggs with various patches and ripstop stick ons.
I could even go with something sewn on, this isn't a waterproff shell (has a GoreTex liner).
Know of anything along those lines that would be hi viz, and reflective?
I see some smaller (1") tapes and few triangle shaped thingies.

I'm curious about this as well. Would ironing compromise the gore tex because of the heat?

There are things like this
I had decent luck using a gore branded, heat activated patch to cover a burned hole in a leg of my Aerostich Darien pants years ago, the fix lasted for a few years.
There is a conformable 3M brand SOLAS tape. Designed to stick to fabric.
I have been impressed with it. I have put it on a back pack, messenger bag and the back of two jackets with out a failure.
And it has been on one back pack for 14 years now, that bag has been all over and no lifting or curling of the tape.
But if you go that route, make sure it's the flexible tape with the glue for fabrics.
On vacation for a spell
