Reflective Pant Leg Band


How is it that it took till now to think this up?

I mean, jeez, someone coulda produced it 50 years ago.

More, even.


Reviewed by Mark Creer in Cool Tools as follows: "I've used these simple pant clips for the past two years. They are small, inexpensive, and effective. They keep my pants from getting dirty or torn by the chain of my bike. The combination of simplicity and low price makes them a great solution to a common biking problem."

Two for $10.48 (pants and bike not included).

Tesco sells them in Poland for some 14 zlotys a pair which makes them around three times cheaper. Just got one pair form me and my girlfriend recently.

And i like this thingo better that the velcro type - way cleaner solution.

They did have these 50 years ago (more or less - reflective tape was uncommon so paint was used, at least on the ones my father had). Per @antares, the fabric/velcro ones with proper prismatic retroreflector plastic material in them are much better.

I commuted by bike starting in 1972, and I had something very similar. I probably still have them somewhere. Yep, I'm "film can old".

In my experience, metal leg clips do not work as well as Velcro leg bands: http://www.bicycleclothing.com/Legbands.html

I have had a reflective leg band since 1987.
