When you feel good in your clothes, you look good in your clothes! And what better way to make your presence known than glowing, literally. Reflective gear isn’t only eye-catching, its shine catches the attention of others, serving as an important safety feature. As the sun starts setting earlier in fall, having these safety staples as part of your outdoor routine is key.
1. Personal Protection
This Asics Lite-Show Buff can be worn as a neck gaiter, armband or even a headband. Its breathable material will manage moisture no matter where you decide to sport it. The choice is yours! ($25; asicsamerica.com)
2. Bottom’s Balmy
Chase the chill! Under Armour’s Black Reflective Tight is perfect for fall runs and races, comprised of revolutionary all-over black reflectivity that shines whenever light hits it. Plus, it has a zip pocket to stash your keys, credit card and ID so you don’t have to haul a bag along as you pound the pavement. ($150; underarmour.com)
3. Wrist Warning
Subtle yet seen: This Lululemon Full Tilt Long Sleeve’s reflectivity is confined to its cuffs. The thick Rulu fabric provides warmth during your chilly morning miles and wicks away sweat to keep you dry. Mesh lined armpits help regulate body temperature. ($88; lululemon.com)
4. Solid Shield
You might not think it’s a bright idea to put on a black jacket at night, but don’t let this top layer fool you. As soon as headlights or streetlights shine on the Puma Pure Nightcat Jacket, its normally subtle, 360degree reflective grid pattern reveals itself in full force. ($100; shop.puma.com)
5. Top Tier
Stay warm on brisk runs wearing the Brooks NightLife hat. Not only does the hat have reflective designs stitched into the fabric, it comes equipped with a rear flashing LED-light so you’re always visible. Bonus: The light is easy to remove for washing. ($35; brooksrunning.com)
6. Fancy Feet
The New Balance Glow In The Dark 1400 offers an ultralight racing experience without skimping on support or stability. Charge them up under a lamp or in the sunlight for 10 minutes, head out on your evening run and watch them glow! ($90; newbalance.com)
