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 HomeDepot.com, its only $12.97!

    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™‚

    I found hi viz shirts for my son and I at CVS for $2.

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

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

    I’ve been to Ikea countless times and never noticed their safety vests. Looks good! Thanks for the tip, Donald.

    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.
