Testing Aldebo 100 Reflective Spray
I commute by bike, and during the winter this means I spend a lot of time commuting in the dark. I have been trying out different ways to increase my visibility: various bike lights, wearable magnetic lights, reflective tape, reflective fabric -- but none of these options worked well with my favorite wool coat. Tapes don't adhere well to wool, and hi-tech looking lights take away from the natural aesthetic feel of the wool coat.
I gave the Albedo 100 Reflective Spray a try to see if this would be a good option. The paint is temporary - so relatively low risk - and supposedly invisible during the day.
I found that the paint was incredibly reflective, but not truly invisible by day. It kind of looks like I have a light dusting of fake snow where the paint is strongest. It's not ideal, but I'm not really sure you would notice if you weren't looking for it, and honestly I would say that the added visibility and safety is worth the trade off of having the slight discoloration by day.
