This is fiber art technology; not El Wire.
The vinyl is glass clear; you almost could not see the vinyl itself; just the clothing I am wearing inside it.
While this vest is great for being seen while bicycling, it is also a piece of art to be worn during art shows and parties.
Not warm by any means and not at all suitable for the rain, this vest does make an excellant conversation piece at outdoor evening sporting events and evening cocktail parties.
Once, I wore this to the Portland Art Museum and one of the docents looked at me as if I was a new art exhibit!
