This is a really clever idea. I wouldnt count on it being reflective enough for a night time bike ride, but it would definitely hide that ugly helmet. I know manufacturers have tried to make them pretty with colors and stickers, but theyre still not very attractive. This would be wonderful for kids who have to wear helmets due to medical issues, too.
