The Proviz range is becomming increasingly popular and now they have release a promotional video to show how much safer a 360 jacket like theirs can make you on your daily commute.
The technology used on the 360 Range from Proviz makes it that little but more special than any other high vis vest, gilet or jacket you may own. During daylight, their jackets maintain a modest grey colour, but it's at night when they truly shine.
Picking up any external light source you may encounter on your early morning or evening commute such as vehicle headlights, or road lights the jacket becomes an outstanding piece of reflective gear.
The Reflect 360 cycling jacket was the world's first to be designed using Proviz's 100% reflective outer-shell. The jacket's high quality material is designed to look and feel great while keeping the weather out, and you safe.
The reflective ability of the material helps other road users to identify your position on the road at night, in the early morning or those dull afternoons, to allow you an extra few seconds of time to react and manoeuvre appropriately.
Their new promotional video shows us just how much safer you are – in real time – if you wear a Proviz 360 jacket. Their YouTube clip above shows us two scenarios, one where a cyclist is wearing a Provice 360 jacket and the other where the cyclist is not wearing any reflective gear. The video can get quite intense, and you quickly understand the risks you can run into if not properly visable to traffic.
For the full Proviz 360 experience you must check out their Out of the Dark website, where an interactive video allows you to switch between a cyclist wearing the 360 jacket and not, while he cycles home – it's pretty obvious almost instantly how the jacket saves the guy from a few too many close encounteres.
