Don't know much about the different brands, but have been surprised by the apparent idiocy of people who buy the trendy navy blue, black, or other dark-colored foul weather gear (especially with a white hood) that is out there for sale from most major companies. How do they expect to be seen if they go overboard? Even if they have their own personal GPS signaller, how will they be spotted on a dark night in the type of conditions that would put them overboard? I think of red as a possibility, and buy yellow.
