At this price, grab several, put one in your car trunk in case of an emergency, tire change etc. Lets other drivers see you a lot better!

@gmartell: That's actually a great suggestion. Also, very good to have on hand if you walk around with little kids on Halloween. Or, can use them while night jogging, snowmobiling, biking, etc...

TL;DR Doesn't look like you can order w/o being LEO, since it says POLICE on the back. Not necessarily a bad policy IMO

@rubberduckythug: Crap. Was going to make the kids wear these to church next Sunday.

Really no point in reflective safety gear unless it's class 3 high visibility.

@keeblerelf86:

No point? That's about as dumb of a statement I have heard in quite some time....

Great for that court ordered community service!

FYI, this is not ANSI class 3 rated for highway use. If you're planning on just keeping it in your trunk for emergencies, but if you're in any type of construction, technically it doesn't meet minimum requirements for reflectivity on highways.

@kmeltzer: Noooooooooo kidding....the parents I saw out with their kids this past halloween, crossing streets not at designated crosswalks, in dark areas, with dark costumes appalled me. I am by no means a halloween grinch, but lord ppl....I couldn't see the parents let alone the kids when I drove to the store...no flashlights, glo lights, light up pumpkins, nothing!! The stupidity of some ppl... Reflective gear is a must on even remotely busy streets...

Not to mention joggers and dog walkers that walk in the street at night...

Two years ago I would have jumped at this, but since the YMCA became just the "Y", I have no use for it. I've also had to lay off the Indian chief, the cowboy and the motorcycle cop.

Hey, I'm Leo! That means I can get a police one!

I wish I had some extra cash... A local ordinance states that panhandlers & folks looking for donations (car washes, etc) must wear one of these. Most police officers will hand them out if someone donates them,

@wingnut99: Damn those state austerity cuts. THEY EVEN CUT THE INDIAN,NOT THE INDIAN! I thought they had him on part time.

Bummer about the deal. Great to wear while you ride bike or motorcycle. I have two bikes could have used a second for my passenger. I will just continue honking my horn at every intersection I come to. All those cagers are trying to kill you.

Would you rather wear this or camouflage while hunting?

I never understood the desire to hide from animals when ppl with guns are around.
