When you find out what this safety vest is made of, you will certainly be able to exclaim: What?! Well yes, it's really made of goose down! And that's far from being the only gadget that will surprise you. The "Flash" in the title means that you will not just run like a flash, but you will also shine. This is exactly what this vest is going to bring to you this year, if you have been worthy of the whole year, helping the road and not choking anyone.
The vest has on the chest and in the upper two thirds of the back of the classic tunnels filled with thermal insulation material. You know exactly the same with feather jackets. But they are not so busy here. The waistcoat is designed to cool well, but not overheat when it is cold. The manufacturer had to take into account the specifics of active movement at low temperatures. This also corresponds to the processing of individual tunnels. Their departments no longer provide classic sewn seams, but seams welded with state-of-the-art technology. These joints are wider and in the middle of each you will find laser-cut, regularly changing smaller and larger ventilation holes. On the back, the vests pass through the reflective fabric, but on the chest there are two layers that follow on like bricks - where the top layer has an insulating charge, the lower layer has ventilation holes and vice versa. Even though the chest area is ventilated, the wind will not blow your vest.
Upstairs, the vest is ended by a small collar, which may give reason to regret that it does not have a proper roller collar. However, it is also well-calculated - when the runner heats up, the feeling of cold on his neck is gone, and he can enjoy the pleasant touch of a small elastic collar that does not squeeze out anywhere. The vest also has elastic side panels, so you do not have the least fear of limiting your movement during the run. Its rear is elongated, so you will not get back from it even in a very dynamic run.
The vest is fastened with a zipper with two opposite riders, so it can only be unlocked from the bottom when you need to step up in the mountains or hills, for example, and you do not want to clothe your garment. I was just a little surprised at the beginning that I had riders on the other side than I expected (and really it was a men's variant). It's just a habit, so the manufacturer has all the zips in the men's models. Enjoy the water-repellent finish of the overcoat, which will give you a relatively lightweight overcoat in relative dry conditions.
You'll definitely appreciate the pair of zippered pockets. Each of them holds a small secret. One includes a stitched elastic hand strap and a double-sided zip. So the vest is just enough to stuff the cloak into this pocket, turn it on - and you have a light, practical pack of warm clothes on the road. In the second pocket you will find a small internal pocket for the MP3 player or a key from the house.
The upper two-thirds of the front and rear waistline prints a huge number of reflective segments. If something in the dark shines on you, you will surely see it from an international orbital station. It's just a shine like lightning. Different wide lines also make up a very interesting design element, which optically opposes even under ordinary daylight. The same motif is used by Nike for other garments this year's winter collection. A large reflective strip is added at the back of the back.
I wonder in vain what's best about this jacket. Dust Goose Quill? Dazzling Reflector? Can you pack it into a small pocket and put it on your hand? I cannot decide exactly why a person falls in love with this warm girlfriend. But know that you will not want to leave from a run-of-date rendezvous with her. Do not even run away.
