I’m not a big fan of high visibility bike clothing. Somewhat for philosophical reasons, but mostly because it’s usually dog ugly. Between frumpy, boxy shapes and no interesting detailing, it’s no wonder the few companies that offer stylish options are priced at a premium. The other option: design and sew your own like Emma did.
A trip to her local fabric store yielded high vis yellow fabric, high vis orange tape and reflective trim. Putting it all together in this sweetly feminine and supremely visible vest was purely Emma’s work. I love, love, love it!
How about that mailbox alternative to a pannier! For how-tos on how to build your own, thank Martha Stewart. That where Emma got her inspiration. The upside is that unlike most panniers, this one can be locked.
