I like to have one for work when job sites require it. The large panels are perforated to allow air to pass through so you don't get hot. Also, many job sites require tear-away vests, especially if there is a lot of rotating machinery, and this vest has five tear-away points (both shoulders, the front closure, and the adjustable sides). I have another style vest that has many more pockets, but it is not tear-away or perforated. It is also not adjustable for size, but it is still a nice vest. Overall, I prefer this one because I usually have plenty of pockets in my work clothes anyway.
I also use these as a vest for running, especially when I travel. They are lightweight, allow air to pass through, and there is an inside pocket on the upper left chest. I can place an ID and room key card there if my running shorts don't have pockets (usually don't). When running around busy hotel areas, it helps to be seen! The pocket is large enough for an ipod or other MP3 player.
I also decided to use this vest for motorcycle riding. Hi-viz is especially important in traffic, but I wanted to be able to choose any motorcycle jacket and not worry about it being hi-viz specific. In this way, I am able to put the hi-viz vest over my jacket or choose not to have hi-viz in certain situations. Also, I don't have to worry about UV light fading my expensive jacket or it getting dirty and losing visibility. It is easier to wash the vest or throw it away and get another one. The adjustable straps on the side allow the vest to conform to just me (when running) or in full protective gear (when riding). I am 6'3" and 235 pounds and I wear 2XL jackets. There is PLENTY of adjustability both ways with this vest and it can be snugged down over a riding jacket so it doesn't flap around.
I highly recommend these vests for safety and they are a good value.
Additionally, the Velcro closures provide some tear away protection -- if an object should snag the vest it will rip away (with some effort -- it's not super easily separated).
I have been using these vests for several years, and I am extremely happy with them.
I have washed this one 4 times now and I might as well throw it away. I would not recommend this one if you are looking for a quality vest.
