Jean is very excited about her designs and easy to work with. I talked to her on the phone and enjoyed our conversation. The website is fairly easy to navigate and I like that they also have a children's line. There are a lot of fun designs to pick from. I found it a little confusing trying to decide which fabric to order it in. I picked a tank and there were four fabric choices and not all the colors came in all the fabrics.
I went with the Burst of Lines tank as I thought it looked really sharp and I ordered it in the Tricot which is described as Tricot (81% Poly - 19% Spandex). Lightweight; good for mild to hot climate. Wicks moisture. Silky and smooth; super comfortable. At $40 it seems a little expensive to me. I usually do not spend more than $25 on a tank if that. I am pretty cheap though.
The fabric is indeed very silky and soft.
I took a picture of the shirt in my pantry because it is dark in there and I wanted to see the reflective action going on. As you can see it works!
Cons: The price seems a little high to me for a tank top. It also rides up a little in the back, though not in a way that was annoying to me when I was running.

EDIT Jean wrote to me and asked if I could include this in the review in defense of my price criticism.
Jean Kateraas here. Thank you for the review. May I kindly request a justification for our pricing in your review? We are a small and young company in and my products are made in the USA. The reflective is a high quality 3M made products that are compliant to safety code(lead free) in the US. Yes, the price can come down if I out sourced everything to , which the reflective is of low grade quality and may contain LEAD. My goal is to support the economy here in the US, which keeps the pricing a little higher than products made in China.
