I recently purchased this vest for myself during Brooks' sale, and I would highly recommend it. It's extremely lightweight, so plan to wear it over top of base layers in the winter or wear it over a tank top/short sleeved tee in warmer weather. I felt much more secure running in low light and in snow. The pockets are also useful for storing gels, phone, keys, etc.

Also, I wear a size 36DD sports bra and the large fit just fine with light base layers underneath.

The bright color is great, but there are only a few, very (very) thin reflective strips. Also, I'm a small, curvy woman and the XL is tight in the chest. I typically wear a L and the XL is snug.

Comments about Nightlife Essential Vest III:

I was having a hard time finding a replacement running vest in any stores and even online, so this one fit the bill. My husband likes how visible it makes me but I would have preferred a choice of a more muted color. It has all the essentials of a high zip neck, zip pockets and nice fit. I could have done without the flap in the back, but it wasn't a deal breaker. I'm happy with it.

    Comments about Nightlife Essential Vest III:

    I love this vest. I run the roads early and needed something lightweight and reflective. I am 5'4 130lbs and bought the large. I am able to wear a heavier 3/4 zip underneath for the winter months. I like having pockets to carry my phone and gloves.

          This vest is an excellent fit, not too snug, but snug enough that it's not bulky. The bright color is great for running in dawn/dusk. There are minimal reflective strips as others have criticized, but you can still be viable.

                    The fit was great and I liked how it was tailored to fit my body. I was able to keep my shape while having an extra layer in cool temperatures. The color was extremely bright, which meant I was visible to traffic during my dark morning/evening runs. However, I wasn't thrilled with the "duck butt" feature in the back. That was the main reason I returned it.

                        Great extra lightweight layer when walking / running outside. Pockets are useful, and the reflective is great for in the dark.

                          I love this vest. I bought it on sale to help with visibility during night runs. Great for dark, rainy nights in the PNW. It's comfortable and warm and easy to unzip to adjust the level of comfort. The pockets make storing gear easy.

                          I usually wear a Medium and found that it was true to size and am able to wear layers underneath without a problem.

                            Using this for biking and visibility - it is of a heavier material than competitor brands if you are planning on using it in the summer. It doesn't fit as well...flares out at bottom with pleats in back. Just feels heavy. Awesome reflective color.
