Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 7
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by OwenK Vest was a wet mess
The only reason I give an over all rating of fair is that I did not realize until after the purchase and I was too far away from the store to return it (I needed it for the same day as I was on my way to a job site) when I opened the package I found it was soaking wet. I could not use it when I needed it and had to borrow one from someone else. Not a good thing, and as far as I am concerned bad stocking practices. Seemed like it may have been a get the stock out and up on the shelves regardless of condition.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nerdofparadise Great for bike commuting
I picked this gem up to try out for my bike commuting safety needs, and couldn't be happier. The thought of spending upwards of $40 for a PI/REI/other-name-brand bike safety vest seemed silly in comparison.
The strips are highly reflective and cover all angles, and the color is very bright and visible. The material is holding up perfectly, despite being pinched between me and my backpack and getting rubbed around and drenched with summer sweat; it's very easy to get clean in the regular laundry.
As for fit, I'm 6'2", broad-shouldered and trim; I had to cinch the straps all the way to have a relatively close fit over an ultra-thin biking top, but it works. It would be too loose for racing, but I don't race. If I were wearing heavier clothing for working outside, it would fit perfectly.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MauiGuy Good for light duty
PRO: This safety vest provides good visibility and is reasonably priced. It has internal pockets (but I haven't used so I can't evaluate them).
CONS: The tear away safety requirement means that this vest has almost as much velcro as reflective material. I can see the velcro hooks being a "magnet" for all sorts of debris. I haven't had that happen yet but I can forsee that occurring if this vest was in daily use on a job site.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by mike it is reflective, but useless
I need pockets. It had 1 pocket on the inside. Pretty much making it useless.
