Cold-weather jacket? Check. Waterproof shoes? Check. You’re almost ready for winter, but what about a few high visibility accessories? Many runners forget about hi-viz accessories when sunlight hours start decreasing, but adding just a couple to your on-the-run gear can seriously up your safety factor on the roads. Running brands are using bright colors, reflectivity and even LEDs to help you increase your chances of being seen by motorists. Not to mention the fact that they add a little flair to your run wardrobe. Here are just a few of our faves.
A great option for the runner who seeks maximum visibility in a super lightweight package. Hi-viz green, wide reflective silver accents and front/rear flashing red LEDs help you be seen, while streamlined design lets you run uninhibited.
This vest is designed to offer visibility from up to 1,200 feet away thanks to two removable red LED strips. It has a front zipper pocket to carry small essentials, and an easy-access key pocket so you won’t have to fumble around to find your key post-run.
Not only are these LED bands visible from up to ¼ mile away, but the one inch wide band is fully adjustable to fit around your arm or leg. Choose from three LED colors and slip on a little safety.
