A bright yellow reflective vest should do just fine as I see it. I happen to have one and have used it when bicycling on rural roads.

Quite agree about bright colors when cycling. For me, a yellow or orange jersey is de rigeur when on the road. The same goes for pedestrians, especially at night.

I was thinking about the yellow vest in the context of being seen in a emergency situation in the wild. Usually I wear dark or camo clothing in the bushes. The yellow reflective vest I have folds down to a small package that fits in a pocket. Meaning it is easy to take along and having available when needed to be seen. And bright yellow should be even more effective than orange.

For that matter, a good many contemporary flashlights have a strobe function (not always that accessible).
