Reflective (washable) spray

A quick search here did not pull a thread about this, so let me share what I found.

I read about a washable reflective spray and order a can. It cost about $16.00 with shipping from Walmart.
Not very happy with the result as I ended up with tiny spots, like dirt on the shoulder area, maybe as a result of spraying the jacket on a table. But since it says it is washable, I am not too concerned, besides the jacket does not look very clean after I washed it…

Anyway, here are pictures of the spray and jacket.

Re: Reflective (washable) spray

It might not be pretty or immediately recognizable as a human form, but it should allow you to be seen!

"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

Curious stuff. Wonder how they arrived at a need for a washable/temporary product.
Looks like it certainly delivers as advertised.

I was wondering the same thing. If I'm trying to make myself more visible I don't think I want to "disappear" if I run into a bit of rain.

Re: Reflective (washable) spray

It looks like a Michael Jackson stage jacket with the reflective crystals or better yet like a 1980s high school prom attire.

My intense yellow riding jacket is pretty light also. I don't know if it is "planned obsolescence" in the fabric or that bright colors have tendency to fade more than subdued ones.

You can always wear a mesh yellow vest over the jacket as an alternative.

Re: Reflective (washable) spray

Here is a night view, the spray in the mesh area does not really reflect.

Re: Reflective (washable) spray

Consider getting extra large vest so it will fit over your riding jacket.

I had an Icon for a long time. It looks good too.

Re: Reflective (washable) spray

This might work. It has led lighting that strobes or stays steady. You could fold it up when not needed. Just get a large enough size to wear over your jacket.

There's also the Volvo LifePaint which is a rebranded Albedo reflective paint.
