Help me buy night reflective gear

I live on a narrow winding road without sidewalks or even a shoulder to step on, ie, there are places where the road surface drops off right into a lake, or up a steep hill. Visibility is EXTREMELY important for daily necessary walks to go pee. I have a big bulky traffic vest that falls off my shoulders and gets in the way, does the job, but is a pita.
I have a reflective leash.

I found these on Amazon. https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B01ELPU8LU/...I2LD0IHOX71DLU

I can't even figure out where it ships from, let alone, is this a trustworthy seller? Help???

The gear is one traffic vest for a human, which looks ideal as it is only straps not a full vest so it won't be flapping around everywhere.

And one vest for a dog, which looks ideal as it covers more of the dog than a reflective collar would, which would be nice when he's off-leash in the bush (if I can SEE where he is I am happy, if I can't see him, I pretty much panic because he can run 100 mph in a straight line), so being able to see him when he jumps off the trail would be nice for both of us. And also, really good for those narrow road walks which I also like to do.

Any other ideas (cheap) to help with visibility of both of us walking on the road (literally on the road). Oh, I have a petzl (headlamp) already, usually strap it to my arm flashing red), but so much gear, would love to go out with less gear, especially for that grumpy/sleepy early morning pee walk where I just want to get out the door with minimum fuss.

And for dog off leash. He can be 20 feet away and disappear into dense bush so an orange vest would be nice for that.

Thanks in advance from both of us,

Have you looked into any of the light up collars/harnesses/ leashes? Like the ones with the batteries in them that make them glow?
