Night cycling should be attempted only by the very bold—and the very cautious. But if your gas-guzzler-eschewing, two-wheeling proclivities extend past sundown, staying safe with the right gear can be a matter of life and death. Looking like Bruce Boxleitner in TRON, the inspiration for Cordaround’s Urban Awareness Jacket, couldn’t hurt, either. (Click below the fold for a video demo.)

Urban Awareness Jacket


Like LFLECT’s reflective knits, the waist-length jacket is a stealth operator. By day, it looks like regular street attire, but by night, it catches light with strategically positioned reflective stripes. It’s also reversible, with black cotton twill on one side and a black-and-white houndstooth pattern on the other.

By day, the jacket looks like regular street attire; by night, it reflects light.

Just this side of flashy enough for a Light Cycle duel, the Urban Awareness Jacket features a banded collar and zippered cuffs. Another plus: It’s made locally in San Francisco without sweatshop labor.
