Attaching a Broadway-sized spotlight to the back of your bicycle will certainly make you stand out on the road, but people will also be frequently demanding you belt out show tunes. We’ll pass.

Instead, beef up your bike safety with the RA Reflective Jacket, part of the RA Reflective Performance Garments collection. Designed for “temperate cycling conditions, cool morning starts, descents and sudden showers,” this jacket also lights up the road like nobody’s business. How? The secret is millions of microscopic reflective beads made up of silica, a common mineral found naturally in quartz. Each silica bead is treated like a queen, getting polished and applied with a unique manufacturing process. They’re then layered on top of each other before being laminated with a thin layer of silicon. It all adds up to a water- and wind-resistant jacket that can be seen from 150 yards away. [Purchase]
