Vapor Flash Jacket In Motion

A month back I wrote a post about the Nike Vapor Flash jacket with it’s 360 degree reflective material. Originally designed for runners I think it is more practical with cyclists who need to be seen by car traffic more than anyone else. This reader sent us their flickr stream with the above video of the jacket in use. This gives you a much greater understanding of how awesome this thing is and how effective it would be for commuting purposes, specifically in the morning hours or shortened winter days. The other reflective adornments in the video are pretty cool too.

    yeah, awesome piece, but it sold out in about a week. Not even listed on the site anymore…
    They do have some left in the women’s cut, and those are actually on sale for around $200.
