I've obviously not put enough thought in to the sartorial elegance of my walking outfits. The colour just depends on what I happen to have on for the weather, or what layer is on show.
 
Cold & wet = red & black
Cold & dry = blue & red
Cool & wet = red & black
Cool & dry = blue & grey
Warm & wet = black
Warm & dry = blue
Hot & wet = black
Hot & dry = blue & red & green
 
Like most people I guess the colours have ended up accidental as I have bought things that suit what I want and what I can afford.
Over hill, over dale. Thorough brush, thorough brier....
I do wander every where

Yes but there is no need to directly criticise someones post containing their opinion.
Hopefully those concerned will one day learn to respect others opinion even if it does conflict with theirs.
However this is going nowhere so there will be no further comment from me, except to say to everyone, enjoy your walking and stay safe out there.
Hey, give and take mate.  You seem happy to call others opinions ridiculous so don't be surprised if it bounces back.  I'll admit I was certainly being slightly facetious at times, but my point stands, you do not need bright clothes to go out walking and it doesn't make you safer.

The farmer in the cow video said not to wear bright clothes to be safe from cows  8) Seems like we are in a difficult place.

Here you go Coggy Mate O0
This Ninja suit is made in a time-honoured manner. It is used by students and instructors world wide. The top is a customary wrap over incorporating secret pocket. The pants have calf ties and traditional ties to the waist. The outfit is complete with inner and outer hood, gauntlets, hand cover gloves and sash. Made from 100% cotton. Excellent for the traditional Ninjitsu practitioner and can even be used as a Ninja costume for those fancy dress parties.
Just wash it with Nikwax it will be right mate :) ;) :D ;D O0

Perhaps the bloke who walks around naked and keeps getting arrested and jailed is simply confused or unsure what colour to wear?!! ;)

Why not. If you hire any person to do a job for you and he turns up looking like last weeks washing then you are going to think that his work is like his attire, sloppy. If you present yourself well then you talk confidently and well spoken it makes you seem more professional. You might be [censored] at guiding but you look the part. You have to remember first impressions last. Most people will have never met you until you introduce yourself. If you look smart and confident then you settle the client as well. If you look sloppy and ill prepared you will worry the client. Its still basic Customer service whether you are a guide or a receptionist at a company desk. You are the first face of the business.   


Sorry, been away.  You didn't say how he was attired simply referred to the colour.  FWIW I think the majority of guides that I've been lucky enough to spend time with have been quite brightly dressed.  But all that they really need to show competence for me is a little badge not matching salopettes and gilet.
