Germany's Jack Wolfskin brand has introduced a highly technical jacket for kids that is "CE-certified." That is a European certification that verifies a product complies with a certain standard. In this case, the jacket has reflective tape all around so the wear is visible from all four sides, plus the brightness is enough to be seen well. We aren't just talking a tiny piping, mind you, but a wide swatch of reflective material on all sides.
