    Anyone know where I can get my wife a reflective vest or something to wear over her Joe Rocket suit in Seattle area? I've checked several dealers and Seattle Cycle Center. Everything seems to be black.

    I'm guessing she might be riding in daylight hours, for a while anyway. It's not reflective, but for visibility hunter/blaze orange clothing is about as visible as you can get. Hunting season being just around the corner, this is a good time to pick up a jacket or vest. Heck, I own so much blaze orange clothing; coats, jackets, vests, pullovers, she can have one of mine to try.

    I see a lot of people riding with the highway workers type vests that are available at hardware stores.
    Try bicycle shops too, I use an Illuminite reflective bicycling vest.

    Thats funny, when I was at Seattle cycle center picking up the hand guards and chest protector that I ordered last week I thought I saw a reflective vest hanging right there by the cash register. I remember looking at that thing thinking that sure looked small but your wife I think would fit in that, theres just no way I could get my fat ass in that thing.

    Yeah, I checked that one out... it was kinda weird. That's the only one Ive seen around and I'd prefer more of a jacket or something (or she would).

    You don't get 360 coverage with a vest, which is why I like coats and jackets for hunting season. Same goes for riding gear, cover up everything.

    For starters Dale, a vest does not go on your ass. I have no oppinion on whether or not your ass is fat. I never looked.

    Try a safety supply store (for construction and utility work) there are many of them in the PDX area, so I'm sure there more in the Seattle area, they would have a better selection and be cheaper then a bike shop too.

    Guards are the rally pro guard and the chest protector is Acerbis zoom plus in black. They had to order both. The chest protector is for us full figure guys :lol3

    You're not gonna like this but Ride West has Halo products including vests, I bought a cheesy Home Depot vest for myself which only serves to illustrate to traffic how I would look in a sports bra. Not good.
