The jacket is made by a company called Proviz, he explained how the jacket worked in the dark ie: how when a vehicles head lights hit the jacket at night it becomes completely reflective, not just in strips [like most reflective clothing] but the whole jacket, it was absolutely amazing, it was as if the jacket had absorbed the light and was reflecting it back, like a mirror would reflect sunlight.

How did the Proviz 360 Cycle Jacket fit
How did the Proviz 360 Cycle Jacket feel out on a ride
The next ride out was a evening one along a towpath, the temperature was cool/cold, I had on a base layer, cycle shirt and the Proviz 360 cycling jacket.
I cycled just over 15 miles using a 29 inch MTB I carried a spare inner tube and a small B'Twin hand pump in the rear pocket, it was very comfortable and not once did I have to fumble around to move it to a more comfortable position.
One problem I did find was, with winter cycling gloves on I found it hard to zip up the jacket when I was riding, but I think the zips will loosen up in time as the Proviz 360 gets more use.
On the ride I didn't feel to hot or to cold, the arm vents worked extremely well when I picked up the pace a bit on the ride.
Many more photos to come in due course.
If you cycle at night, you really must consider checking out this jacket, reviews just do not do the Proviz 360 range justice, it is Not just a Hi-Viz Cycling jacket, this is something a lot more than just that, it makes you stand out in the dark !
