If you've already got a hi-viz vest, extra running lights, headlight modulator, flashing LED rear lights, reflective patches etc. why not!

Those vests remind me of a scene in a movie (title escapes me) scene at night where a tandem bicycle rides by the main character, and the bike & riders are completely covered in LED-type lights. Rolling Eyes

Nice thing about this is light weight, fits over any clothing, and provides a significantly different shape from other lighting sources. I would definitely buy one if I was often a night rider (cue theme song).

While your at it, you may wish to put LEDs on your helmet for visibility and fun (scroll down link to play video):
