The Reflect 360 cycling jacket is the world's first to be designed using a 100% reflective outer-shell. The jacket's high quality material is designed to look and feel great while keeping the weather out. The reflective ability of the material helps other road users to identify a cyclist's position on the road at night giving them an extra few seconds of time to react and manoeuvre appropriately. The Reflect 360 jacket incorporates multiple vents - front, shoulder/back and under arm. This allows the user to regulate body temperature. By opening the front zipper vents a 'through-flow' is achieved. The air enters the front vents, cools the body and exits via the shoulder/back vents. During the winter, the vents can be closed and are designed to also be used as extra pockets if required. These features enable the jacket to be used all year round. The jacket also has an inside chest pocket and large lower back pocket to store an extra layers or a map. FEATURES: 100% reflective outer-shell, Highly water-resistant, Built in air vents to keep ventilated (front, under-arm and shoulder/back), Fleece-lined comfort collar, Adjustable waistband and velcro cuff, Water-repellent storm zip, Seam-sealed for extra waterproofing, Inside chest & back pockets, Low profiled rear spray guard, Inside mesh lining for added comfort, Machine washable, Approx weight (size variable) - 500g
From the manufacturer
The REFLECT360 Cycling Jacket is designed using a completely reflective outer-shell. In the daylight, the jacket is a stylish and modest grey colour. At night when the material picks up an external light source, such as vehicle headlights, the grey colour transforms, providing ultimate reflectivity to other road users.
Built- In Ventillation
The REFLECT360 Cycling Jacket incorporates air vents in the shoulder/back and under arm. This allows the cyclist to regulate body temperature, adjusting to the season and climate. By opening the front zipper vents a 'through-flow' is achieved. The air enters the front vents, cools the body and exits via the shoulder/back vents without letting in any rain water.
For additional waterproofing, the main storm zip is seam sealed and protected with a storm flap. The two exterior chest pocket storm zips are also seam sealed. The interior chest pocket is secured with Velcro for comfort. The zipped large exterior lower back pocket and the air vents are protected with storm flaps.

Illumination - didn't work for the first 3 months as really need light to strike directly at it.
However after a few months as jacket got creased and scrunched up it seems to get brighter with age and now even in the day time it's quite shiny. Day wear is not v useful for commute in the grey mornings as you blend into the road so I wear fluorescent gloves and helmet
Ripped fabric - main reason for giving 2 stars is that wear the zips are sewed into the reflective body, over past year, these have been weak points where large rips have appeared
Zip - main zip also failed in last 6 months, my belly keeps falling out
So, good at start but failed after 1 year
Coming back to the change of seasons, I put the jacket on this morning over a work shirt and a thin hoody. The temperature was 11 C with some cloud cover. What this showed me was that the jacket is NOT breathable in the slightest - to be fair it doesn't claim to be - but be aware, you get very wet very quickly even with the vents wide open. That is why it's 60 quid and not 260. So Proviz, please think about releasing an Event or Gortex version - I would probably pay the difference
The only issue is that you need direct lights on you so if a car is pulling out of a side street it won't see you until you're right in front of it so don't expect it to know you're coming. Lights will help with this.
I use an electric bike so take it from that perspective. I don't get hot and sweaty when I ride. The jacket is not that warm and I'm happy I went a size up so I can wear another jacket underneath. Even now as autumn rolls in(September london) I need to wear a jersey underneath it as it's too cold to just wear my work shirt.
I have noticed some threads around the sleeve coming a bit lose so not too confident in a long durable life out of it but time will tell.
