Alternative resource for High Visibility Shirts

I was recently at Home Depot and to my surprise I saw Hi-Vis T-shirts with reflective stripes being sold there. The price was around $19 for a shirt, not bad if you ask me, but if you order it on, its only $12.97!


Here’s the description:

Cordova’s Hi Vis T-Shirt is excellent for construction, road work, utility work and recreational use. The lightweight polyester is soft and durable. The 2 in. reflective tape and Hi Vis Lime Green color provide high visibility day or night.

* Meets ANSI/ISEA 107-2010 class II
* 2 in. Silver reflective tape vertical over each shoulder and horizontal around the waist
* Chest pocket
* Machine washable, hang dry,100% lime green polyester

    Not sure if it meets the exact same standards, but they have similar high-vis vests (with retroreflective stripes) at Ikea for about $5. πŸ™‚

    Another place that I’ve bought shirts (and gloves) from in the past is

    And their standard color ‘moisture-wick’ shirts are great for everyday non-cycling use.

    Does it come in a tank top version?

    appreciate the updates. keep thinking the technology of wicking (their word, not mine) shirts would increase to allow for high visibility colors. but so far, has only rationalized absurd prices.

    Thanks for all the additional links to hi-vis wear.

    I’m a fan of being as visible as possible… (bright yellow, orange or green are my faves)

    Don’t forget the $9.99 safety goggles work great for night riding! They offer UV protection as well.
