Cycling after dark isn’t child’s play. With dark roads and passing vehicles to contend with, a blinking red light on your tail is rarely enough. Enter Dargelos’s “Lightning” vest, a reflective mesh vest for nocturnal pedal-pushers. Hand-netted in Brooklyn using reflective material custom-manufactured by 3M in Rhode Island, the vest is designed to help you stand out even on the darkest evenings. The neck opening is large enough fit over your helmet, while the open-weave construction allows quick and easy access to any pockets. Best of all, the vest is compact enough to fit inside said pockets, without any risk of tangling. Who said you needed to look like a crossing guard to ride safe?
