Light weight hi-vis long sleeve light jacket?

Good day folks,

Anyone have a good recommendation on where I can buy a light zip up jacket which is high vis (e.g. yellow, orange)? It needs to be light weight like nylon down here in the scorching heat/sun of South Florida.

I have serious riding gear, but for simple straight road commuting, all that gear can be quite a bit.

Thanks!

Thanks for the reply...that jacket is nice, but at $190, I am looking for something offering less protection, yet long sleeve, so I can get by that gate guard at the military base.

right now I am wearing a simple nylon (super thin) black and dark blue active wear jacket, but it in no way is hi-vis. I probably bought the whole pants and jacket years ago for about $40.

I'v seen tshirts that are hi-vis, but I am really looking something I can zip up/down for overwear of my work attire....

Found one!

Good day guys, thanks for the recommendations...I found just what I am looking for on amazon (after multiple modifications of search criteria and filtering )

It is a B&C sirocco men's lightweight jacket (both orange and yellow is avail) and can be found at
