Um, how excited are you about a button-down shirt that has hidden reflective strips? If your answer is less than exclamation-point-worthy, you may want to ask someone who depends on alternative means of transportation, like bicycles or skateboards and the like, and see how excited they are, because then I can give them a high five.
The RS01 Integrated Reflective Shirt is smart. It looks like a comfortable work shirt, yet has 3M retroreflective threads (completely passive) woven through its checked pattern. It also has wind blocking panels built directly into the shirt construction and a handy pocket in the side seam (with a snap-closure) for your phone. You’ll look smart and you’ll be smart for wearing extra insurance to make sure you’re visible at night.
“In the RS01 fabric, the reflectivity is durable and bright. The reflective element is invisibly nestled into the Shepherd’s Check pattern. It stays hidden during the day, and pops out on the street.”
Available from Kickstarter, $95.00.
