Have recommended this to all my mates as this is without doubt the best jacket I have used. I have the Orange one I love it. Reflective detailing is why I bought it mainly – the positioning and functionality is perfect and bright. Likes – fleece lined collar, waterproofing, adjustable cuffs. Dislikes – none really, maybe a tag on the zip to pull up/down…. No one seems to sell Proviz in Oz yet – they should.
As the summary says, I have had the jacket for 9 months now and commuted daily through some of the worst weather I can recall this winter. The NIghtrider jacket has performed effortlessly and never once has it let me down on waterproofing and I never get too hot either unlike other jackets I have used in th epast. Reflective tailoring is very visible at night.
Was given this jacket by my wife late last year at Thanks Giving as I was shunted by a car a few weeks prior. Faultless. It is waterproof, breathable, a nicely lowered rear guard (no wet back here). REALLY GREAT.

A really good find Review by Graham1001
I was recommended the Proviz Nightrider jacket by a mate recently so I followed his lead and I have not been disappointed. It came really quickly and it has been perfect in the last 2 months that I have been using it daily for my trip to work and back. You can’t beat it on safety. I have the yellow one and the colour is superbright and the reflective material is exceptional when cycling at night. I also purchased a Triviz which is nothing like I have seen before – it lights up from at leadt 200 metres away giving cars plenty of time to spot me.
The jacket itself is very conforatble, has kept me totally dry during some big hits of rain and the fleece colour is a nice touch (not chafing here). The only reason I have not given it 5 stars on quality is that a pull tag on the zip would be an added bonus but I am one for detail – I emailed the nice guys at Proviz about this and they are now implementing them so that’s good customer service for you.
