Stark Reflective Vest Review

If safety in the dark is important to you, then you need a reflective vest that will be seen from afar.  I can guarantee you that the Stark Reflective Vest will do the job you’re looking to accomplish.  This reflective vest can be seen from more than 50′ away, clearly, in the pitch black of the night.

Comfortable – Easy to take on and off with the convenient buckle and is made with soft stretch elastic for non-restrictive configuration and full range of motion. You can throw over a jacket or over your shirt. It won’t cause you to get too hot. This feather light reflective vest is a cyclist’s must-have too, designed with a high front and extended back for greater on-bike visibility.

Multifunctional – Not only is this vest great for daytime or night time use, it is also recommended for a number of different activities including: Running, biking, event traffic directing, or any low visibility situation.

Low maintenance – Our vest can be worn over and over again without washing it, drying it, and all the other things we do to maintain our gear and laundry. Between uses, just hang it up or fold it and put it where it’s handy for the next time.

Our Thoughts on the Stark Reflective Vest

The vest is made of a durable material that reminds me of a car seat buckle strap.  The buckle is of substance.  It’s on the larger side, as it needs to accommodate the straps and this is a plus, as it’s much more durable than a small buckle would be.  This would also hold true for the buckles that adjust the size of the vest.  We ordered the XLG as we wanted the vest to accommodate several family members.  This was a good choice as even for those who aren’t the measurements for the XLG vest – it still works well.  The vest is light-weight.

We put the vest to the test out in front of our house where the street light, literally, has a mind of its own.  We live on a corner lot and when cars come from down around the bend before hitting our corner – it’s extremely difficult to see anyone that is, out in or near, the road.  So we had one person driving the car who stopped the car at one telephone pole.  The person wearing the vest walked to the next telephone pole.  Telephone poles in our state are positioned 50′ apart.  As you see in the picture above – the person wearing the vest was clearly visible to the driver of the car.

We will be using the Stark Reflective Vest a lot.  It will be used when we walk the dog.  When we are walking the park at night (speed limit is 15 mph but many think we live at an International Speedway) and I see us taking this fishing with us.
