Not yellow ones!! Magnets for those annoying little black beetles and numerous other flyey, stingey, bitey little blighters that become the bane of our lives.
I have the breathable Airtex type hi viz polos, find them relatively cool(ish), but i dont think anything is 100% perfect.

Re: Coolest (temperature) hi viz t-shirts/polos

I dont think any hi-viz t-shirt meets highways requirment does it? Unless im mistaken they have to be long sleeved

Re: Coolest (temperature) hi viz t-shirts/polos

Good point.
I think only EN471class 3 requires sleeves, for dual carriageways where speeds are 50mph and above, but i may be mistaken, sub 50 mph single lane routes only require EN471/1 or 2, ie waistcoats or t shirts. Again I could be wrong as I have yet to refresh on highways tickets.
