wrong color foulies?
I recently jumped on the post season sales to get a nice foulie jacket that I had been eyeing but not willing to pay retail for. As luck would have it, it is now on clearance and available in the color "Carbon", essentially dark grey.
I like this color better than the other choices of yellow (shark attractor), red (gang member attractor here in oakland), or off white (food stain attractor), but I think I may have chosen the less visible color should I find myself in the water.
Does it matter?
Mitigating this less safety oriented color choice are that it comes with a neon yellow hood (i think), and my PFD, which is also dark when closed, is a properly bright color when inflated.
Too late now anyway unless the order falls though. Maybe do it in red if so?
