Reflective Light Sport Suit

  • Shu Hwa Lin (University of Hawai'i)


Many pedestrians are injured by automobiles as a result of drivers’ visual limitation. Pedestrians at dawn and night are more at risk than in full sunlight. Researcher suggested that pedestrians’ apparel and poor visibility is likely to be a major contribution to these accidents. This project includes a full-length sleeve sports jacket and long jogger pants with reflective fabric to create V effects on joining. A 100% polyester black interlock fabric was used to create upper portion of the pants. The purpose of this garment is to bring outdoor safety issues in the dark environment such as jogging or any sport activities in the early morning and late evening when visibility is low. This outfit can be visible in darker environments when exposed to flashes of light to circumvent accidents. The reflective properties in this outfit provide better visuality under a dark environment.
