I've been trying to get specific kits (jersey, bibs, shorts, gloves) to match season and time of day but there really isn't much choices.

Theres a ton of thermals, long sleeves, 3/4 bib, tights, waterproof caps, windproof caps, water resistance clothing, waterproof clothing...

The 2 main ones I can't seem to find a lot of are

1) UPF/UV protection clothing....
2) Reflective clothing....

A lot of the best brands (I know its all relative) don't even have these properties in their clothing, Assos, Castelli, Rapha....

-Altura does 'Nightvision' stuff, DHB does their 'flashlight' stuff
-Pearl Izumi does the UPF50+

Considering most people ride during the day, I'm surprise there are so few UPF clothing......
Night reflective clothing, maybe understandable since people rely on lights etc

thoughts?

At the moment, I have Altura Nightvision shorts, DHB flashlight tights, can't find a 'reflective' jersey that fits
Have a Pearl Izumi ss jersey with upf50+.

UPF? You mean UV protection? All winter clothing will have a UPF 1000 I guess.

All Assos clothing for winter has reflective strips on it (in fact, most summer garments too).

Check our tights, huge reflective strips on the back to the legs.

Not sure if it covers all that you are looking for but the Stolen Goat jerseys have UV protection on the light weight range and pixel printed rear pockets on on the water resistant end.
