Mrs AWOL describes pyjamas as "garments worn in hotels in case of fire". So, if you're going to be evacuated from a hotel because some tipsy PR girl has set off the fire alarm after one Christmas nightcap too many, what better to be seen in than fluorescent green jim-jams, with retroreflective tape-reinforced seams?
That way, when the fire brigade turns up, they won't mow you down as you stand freezing in the car-park in the wee small hours.

       An excellent idea. A hi-vis bun for you!

       ...and they'll go nicely with your goggles, boots and helmets.

       If you like day-glo orange I know a state-run facility where you can get a set or two.

       Isnt being naked much more visible?

       + The reflective coating also would probably help the firemen find you if you collapse inside while trying to get out.   

       I've never heard of 'pyjamas' as describing fire safety wear, I thought this was going to be some idea for see-through nighties and was wondering why it was so highly rated when already baked :)

       They'd go great with your "emergency flotation device pillow" to use in case of floods.

       Ace - straight-talking, common sense pyjamas.   

       First glances initially registered as Hi-res pyjamas - not sure what they'd be used for though, and I'm not sure I like the concept of lo-res pyjamas at all (far too scratchy)

       A lovely idea, with possible uptake by the confrontationalist subset of people who wear their jammies on supermarket, off licence, and school runs, disgusting savages that they are.
