Before our GAFFE II trip to Mosquito Lagoon, I stocked up on reflective tape for my Trailex trailer and both my Hobie Sport and Outback. This retro-reflective tape goes by the official name of SOLAS (Safety Of Life At Sea), even though it is now required on all big rigs by the DOT. It stands out especially well because it reflects light back directly to the source for added visibility on either land or water. I got mine at Wal-Mart in the automotive department in the red/clear trucker's version, but KFS also sells it in rolls of the clear version. Now, this stuff is expensive no matter where you get it, so be prepared for some â€

Another frequently seen tip is to add some SOLAS tape to your pfd.

Yeah Don, but I have a Stearns inflatable and was not too crazy about unpacking it to apply the tape. I suppose it might work on the straps or front pockets however. Will have to check that out.
