I completely agree with you, I would have preferred anything other than this, that's probably why this color is left, but I cant afford to pay the £60/90 on a jacket for a 4 mile commute and i have decent front and back lights too, If they cant see me, then they need a visit to Specsavers!.
I have seen how reflective this jacket is and read some reviews on this, so it is still very good value, I have one from Aldi, which has been great to me, so not knocking it, but it has lasted me three winters and is at its end, so this should be a good upgrade.

Couldn't agree more. Been cycling for years and given you can get hi viz Orange and yellow which are brilliant during the day and much more visible at night, I don't see point in a black jacket, unless off road only and cold sunny days.

I'm alarmed by the number of people wearing dull jackets / cycle tops...Hi viz up or die!

Orange, Pink and Yellow is used all round the world on H&S hi viz gear in industry...not black. I used to see people in Edinburgh wear these in winter in the dark days and nights...terrible visibility. There's a very bright yellow jacket called illuminator or something like that...had an led which was crap gimmick but the 3m coupled with luminous yellow was very bright in day or night....black is daft...that's why train workers and marine industry and everyone wears hi viz.
