Before I forget, the Complete Streets meeting is today at 3:30 PM. Go if you can, if not watch it on TV and I’ll post my thoughts about it as well.
Do you find it hard to combine your fashion style with scooter gear? Do you want safety vests that don’t look like you work for the DOT? Well Crashwear, a small business out of Seattle could be just what you’re looking for. I have not bought one of these myself, so this isn’t a review. More like an announcement.
The vests come in 4 colors and 2 designs. They retail for $29.99. Crashwear is a great holiday gift and an affordable safety investment for almost anyone who has to take to the streets on foot or on two wheels.

where style and safety collide
I like that tagline: “where style and safety collide”. Note they might also be good gifts for the bicyclists or walker in your life. The vest would fit over your regular jacket, are machine washable, have the important reflective material, and include inside and outside pockets. (Scooter reminder: don’t put lots of crap in your jacket and vest pockets, you don’t want your cell phone/wallet combo bruising your ribs in a crash. But the pockets would be great for joggers and bikers.) The designs include a flower and a filled-out circle, and you can also have your vest lined with faux-fur. The flower is growing on me. And folks in Ohio, she’s a Buckeye so that’s one more incentive to buy! Happy Shopping!
