Actually comes out at a little over £16 after adjustment for 15% VAT.
With the dark evenings arriving I've been searching for a couple of those lightweight flourescent cycling jackets for safety but have been shocked by the prices. Typically they are £40-£50 and up to £80 or more for a trendy brand in some cycling shops (ie more than some people pay for a bike!). Even a flimsy running jacket is £22 in Tesco.
I was surprised and delighted to find this one in Primark which I think would stand comparison with any of them. It's fairly expensive for a Primark item but it's part of their 'Backswing' technical clothing range. Some details:
Flourescent yellow colour with black contrast panels
Zip off sleeves (converts to vest/gilet)
Two zipped front pockets
One zipped rear pocket
Full length front zip
Sorry, I don't know how to get a picture onto here but the barcode number is 6523315.
Understandably they were selling fast but I was told more stock is still arriving. There was just one left in Birmingham this week but Redditch had several in each size yesterday.
NOTE IN ANTICIPATION:If you have fashionably negative views about Pimark's buying policies this site isn't the place to air them. As a large and respectable organisation I'm comfortable that their policies are more ethical than many smaller retailers'. Having recently visited SE Asia I know that garment manufacturing is how many people in these countries are lifting themselves out of poverty and developing their economies. No, I wouldn't want to do the jobs but then I wouldn't have wanted to work in a British factory 100 years ago when our industries were developing either.
