Introduction: Retro-reflective Body Armor for Night Motorcycle Rides / Costume

I'd like to share my patterns for improving the visibility of regular Fox body armor by reflectorized stickers

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials

Body Armor
Retroflective tape
craft knife
scissors

Step 2: Layout

Picture of Layout

Cut the tape into 1/8 inch thick segments. if you managed to find pre-cut rolls, all the better.

I used a Tron inspired / PCB pattern for the boots and chest and back part, and a heavyloader theme for the shoulders and forearms. Take care not to cover the ventilation holes or the armor would not be able to keep you cool and the sweat may loosen the adhesive

Step 3: Finished

Now you can wear it at night and be very visible to others. This armor is a headturner even during daytime.

Thanks mate! By the way the cost of all those stickers is just about $1.50 in local currency.
