    That second one should come with a Stop/Go lollipop for directing traffic at roadwork zones 😉

    Yeh I have the black version in med it won’t fit over my ridding gear and can’t be adjusted I think I’m steering towards the purpose made one and as its only realy when I’m off road I don’t think hi vis is that important

    Personally, I would go a backpack.
    Still have the riding jacket and the versatility.
    You are still going to remove the jacket to get at gear when stopped unless it is just the front part, likely not! and you will be stopped most of the time anyway when you actually require something? So why not just take off a pack?

    I do use just my jacket and a backpack during the colder months but want to use full body armour during summer but still have minimal equipment with me so I thought a vest would be best and I learned to ride with body armour and tactical vest while in the army so I do find it comfatable
