That's the risk of Google. Might even have been Wikipedia. I'd have said "1990s" but checked and found 2003.

It appears that some muppets did a cover or put it on a compilation album or something.  No idea if they were wearing hi-vis.
That's okay, cos I was obviously wearing a helmet; had my brains in a bucket.

Wore mine on an Audax for the first time today. As you may have noticed, there was a bit of rain. It does keep the rain out but I'm afraid I found it far too warm inside, with the result that when I got to the control and took it off I was wet inside and thoroughly chilled. 

I'll give it another try in drier conditions, but I have a horrible feeling that as soon as I start to climb a hill the interior will turn into a sweat bath.

That's a shame.

Anyone tried the Proviz REFLECT360 Running X-Vest on the bike?

Destroying rainforest for economic gain is like burning a Renaissance painting to cook a meal.  EOW.

Well that explains it: different versions in different years!

No but there are already high viz vests in that style but using mesh And 3M reflective and far more breathable. I have a couple.

Potential problem with that style is that it's going to work best with a relatively upright riding position.
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

A Sam Browne belt is still effective day and night imo.

Only really works in a sit up riding position, not so effective in a racing style position
