No"practical"experience",but i wear one.
It is comfortable and unobtrusive.
Hope I never have to "use"it.

Try coupon code PROGRESSIVE at the website safermoto,com,seems to net a fair discount

I just purchased a Helite vest and I see it as inexpensive insurance. It does deter the airflow a bit with my summer jacket, but it's worth it for the added safety. Otherwise it's very comfortable to wear.

I live west of you in Greensboro. Where did you get your Helite?

I also wear a Helite. Here's my test of it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KI7iFZtuf70&t=244s

It's a bit stifling in the summer months if wearing a heavier summer jacket, such as my Motoport. Also, I noticed after this video was made that the velcro strips up the side can completely tear up a soft helmet underlining, such as what Arai typically uses. Otherwise, it's a solid product.
