Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy motorcyclist! As a safety conscious motorcyclist, I purchased this Xinglet for riding at night. It even fits well over my ballistic riding jacket. The chartreuse color stands out starkly at dusk, and the reflective striping and patches glow exceptionally well when exposed to the slightest light. After two years of regular use, including regular exposure to highway speed winds, mine looks as good as the day I bought it. Trying to beat the heat? The Xinglet blocks less wind than even a mesh reflective vest! Limited luggage space? It packs smaller than anything else out there! I can't recommend this product enough for anyone who is out at night!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome visibility I actually have the pocket model but REI does not carry it anymore. I purchased this product due to two near misses in the same run one night. Once I started wearing this product I noticed immediately how drivers gave me more room and they noticed me from a greater distance than before. I also use this product while commuting by bike in the early morning , again drivers really take notice. So far so good in regards to durability, over a year of use including winter rain and snow and no issues. It adjusted to my size quickly and I barely know it is there. I highly recommend this product for bikers and runners.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Utter waste for anyone over 5'6 As a 6'3" person, there is no adjustment of this product that will fit properly. It isn't nearly long enough to get the belt to reach my waist, and it's very restrictive to leave it up around the diaphragm. As a result of the poor fit, the chest pocket becomes useless as well. Running with anything of substance in the pocket will result in that object slamming repeatedly against your breastbone or solar plexus with every step. For a very short person, this vest might be a good purchase. It seems well-made and reflective. For me, since I've disposed of the packaging and therefore can't return it, this thing pretty much is going straight to the dump.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from way better than a vest! I bought this for running. I participated in a 200 mile relay event, a requirement was lights and a reflective vest for night running. I had tried a vest and couldn't stand it. I had thought to myself...what if I simply cut the reflective strips off to make something that resembled a school safety patrol belt. Low and behold....one existed! There were 10 people on our team, and I believe 3 of us used/owned one of these.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Best I've owned........BUT I agree completely with the glowing reviews. This is, by far the best reflective safety item I've used. The big "BUT" comes due to a short useful life. I'm in my third winter bike commuting season and at this point I look like someone's errant wrapped gift. The elastic has deteriorated enough to make the once flat straps look more like curling ribbon. Not sure if I'll buy another, I came here tonight looking for a replacement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still working flawlessly! Everything that I wrote about this great product above is still true, and still making me very happy with this purchase. It has made riding all the more enjoyable. I have used it on every single ride that I have done since my last review, and yesterday I think I tested it in the worst conditions that I could find around here. I went into town 15 miles away in the rain, and back home, all in the rain. I left at 2:30 p.m. and by the time I was heading home, it was mega going home from work traffic time. By the time I got close to home it was only 30 minutes till it would be completely dark. So there I was riding next to hundreds of California drivers, with the Monday blues, in the first rain in months, while it's quickly getting dark, and lots of them speeding home and not liking anyone or anything getting in their way. Just like my last review, I was still getting lots more respect from 99% of the drivers by slowing down and or moving over to the center of the road or over the centerline. The real kicker though was when I got home. My wife and daughter said that they passed me in the car on their way home, about 1 mile up the main road. I asked my wife if her headlights were on and she said "yes." I then asked how well she could see me in the Xinglet. She exclaimed most emphatically, "Oh, I saw you from WAAAYYYYY down the road! I saw your lit up big X, and in the center of the X it looked like you had another light on, just as bright as your LED tail light!" She mentioned something about being "a mile away", and while I'm sure it wasn't really that far, it does say a lot about the effectiveness of this easy to use and wear device. I just can't say enough good about it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from See me coming, see me going... I am very satisfied with the quality of construction and the reflectivity of the material. I don't like having to zinch down the waist belt in order to obtain a better fit. The shoulder straps tend to cause the belt to ride up around my stomach instead of my waist were I would prefer it. I expect the issue to resolve itself once the shoulder straps begin to lose elasticity. It is not a huge problem and I would definately buy again over a vest design that would trap heat and moisture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I thought the reviews about cars giving a wider birth were exagerations until I wore this the first time. I am a night rider since most of our fall, winter and spring months are mostly dark. And I love the quiet of night out on deserted country roads and city streets. The first time I wore this there were cars that actually stopped for me to cross major arterials when I was just waiting at the corner for them to pass. I can tell that cars slow down more behind me and do give me more room when going around. I feel a lot more comfortable in this product. My riding clothes change too much with the weather and temps to stick to one high vis jacket so I love the fact that I can wear this with my down coat or a t-shirt. Some extra length would be good for going over my big puffy coat but it still is good. Great product.

Questions & Answers

How much adjustment is there and would this fit a very petite woman? I am 5'1" tall and weigh less than 100 pounds.

Asked by: trw42
​The waist on this adjusts from 27-47 inches and the shoulders adjust from 16-21 inches. We advise comparing your measurements to this vest to see if it will fit.
