The Proviz Reflect 360 provides incredible visibility which must be seen to be believed. It also does a good job as a windbreaker, but seriously falls down when it comes to breathability.
Good windproof protection
Plenty of pockets
Not very breathable
Check sizing before you buy
Whereas many jackets have reflective strips and details, on the Proviz Reflect 360 the entire outer shell surface of the jacket is reflective, making this the ideal choice for night and twilight riding. It’s worth visiting the Proviz website to see pictures of just how visible this jacket is at night when illuminated.
The jacket performs well as a windbreaker at low temperatures and all the zips have parking gutters. There’s a chest pocket, a generous rear pocket, and a small phone-sized interior pocket too, though the lack of breathability and subsequent build-up of condensation means your phone would need to be in a waterproof case.
While the jacket can get uncomfortably sweaty, there are plenty of vents to provide a through flow of air. The neck is high but fleece-lined and the cuffs are adjustable. Sizing comes up large so it's wise to go down a size when ordering.
With many conventional jackets, a rucksack can often obscure the reflective panels. The Proviz puts these worries to rest. Though it may be more of a commuting jacket than an out-and-out race or training jacket, if safety is top of your priorities then you really should consider the Proviz Reflect 360, particularly at this keen price.
