Now that Daylights Savings Time is in effect (or is it out of effect?) its time to talk reflective gear. As a disclaimer, I must state that I currently have none. However I have spent the past few days researching, reading blogs, talking to runners and looking at gear reviews.
Vests, Hats, Flashlights, Jackets, Shirts, Headlamps, Blinking Lights and More!
Thanks to some of my #runchat Twitter buddies I can recommend running with a headlamp. Petzl makes a few including this solid inexpensive one and Black Diamond makes this sharp one. I’m told running with a head lamp is fabulous and once you use one you never want to run at night without one again.
Brooks, yes I am obsessed with Brooks, makes a great reflective long sleeve shirt for men (it’s even on sale) and for women. Amphipod has an entire line of visibility products including flashing lights, vests and reflective bands. New Balance makes LED Lights and a Vest. Also RunningWarehouse has a section dedicated to Illumination
No matter how you illuminate your runs stay safe and light up the night!
