Re: wrong color foulies?

I went with the yellow coat and black pants. At least the divers could see me better on the bottom when they come for me after the shark eats my bright PFD!
I favor visability, and red looks black at dusk and after. Grey looks good, but is grey, the prodominate color when I'm wearing foul weather gear. Think what is looks like from a helicopter, because anyone looking for you from the surface is at a great disadvantage. One of those glow sticks you snap to activate on a string, like your whistle on the PFD, you do have one right? a whistle that is. If I do fall overboard the wife has promised to call towboat for a ride home and alert the CG as soon as she gets home that I'm overdue.
