The more visible you are as a motorcycle rider, the safer you will be. That is the basic idea behind wearing a mesh motorcycle vest, especially one that has been crafted from high visibility and reflective materials.
Unfortunately, motorcycle riders are surrounded, today, by automobile drivers who are not paying full time and attention to the road and to other vehicles. That is why wearing a vest designed with reflective patches and in bright colors is so important especially if you will be riding at night or in stormy conditions. The last thing you should be wearing in low visibility situations is, say, all black or dark-colored clothing. A pop of color or a reflection off of your mesh vest could be all that it takes for a driver to notice you and to avoid running into you.
In addition, these vests are highly recommended on military bases as part of a rider’s “personal protective equipment (PPE).” The military branches want to make sure that you are visible to other vehicles on their bases, so they have long encouraged riders to wear clothing with reflective gear or fluorescent colors. The Air Force, in fact, states that, “Riders should select PPE that incorporates fluorescent colors and retro-reflective material.” A lightweight mesh vest can help you meet that requirement.
