Imperial Motion Vector Reflective Windbreaker

A strikingly visible pullover shell with understated styling


In January, it’s difficult to not let the season’s shorter days keep you from getting outside for a few hours of fun. Whether skateboarding, running or cycling, the darkness of the winter months makes visibility a concern when choosing the right activewear. Luckily, the design team at Washington-based Imperial Motion dropped a windbreaker with high-visibility capabilities that won’t make you look like a crossing guard. In daylight, the Vector quarter zip pullover appears to be a standard top layer. In darkness, however, the ultra-reflective fabric illuminates when it comes in contact with even a minimal amount of light. With waterproof properties and ample breathability, the simply styled jacket is a nice contrast to the over-technical reflective pieces we’ve become accustomed to.

Pick up the Vector from Imperial Motion for $99.
