Illuminated Waistcoat

For light where there was no light before

Ever find yourself walking in some dimly lit area, or with a need to distinguish yourself from a crowd? If not, then you would probably have no use for an illuminated waistcoat.

A combination of some surreptitiously placed LEDs, thin and lightweight batteries and a dimmer switch handily concealed as a button or toggle ensure that you will never find yourself lacking for lighting again.
