    I bought this to wear during the Hood to Coast Relay race, where you are required to have reflective gear on during certain hours. I’m a night runner in general, but I don’t usually wear vests because I have strobe lights and a runner’s flashlight and headlamp, so I’m pretty visible without it. Plus, I was always worried about vests falling off mid-run and me having to stop and adjust it or waste precious energy fidgeting to adjust it back to comfort. I wore this vest on a nighttime leg of Hood to Coast and not only did it stay put as it is highly adjustable, I barely remembered that I was even wearing it! It was not heavy, it didn’t constrict me, and it didn’t annoy me either. The wrist/arm bands were an added bonus. I live in DC where motorists seem to have trouble recognizing people trying to cross the street, so I like to make it as easy as possible for them without having to wear a street lamp and a fog horn and a huge yellow sign that screams I’M A PERSON CROSSING THE STREET SO YOU CAN WAIT 2 SECONDS AND LET ME WITHOUT KILLING ME PLEASE. Sorry, a little misplaced anger. I will definitely be using these as the fall and winter running months approach us.

    Comfortable and very visible at night, June 24, 2015

    With its adjustable elastic straps, the vest is very comfortable, and it should fit almost any size person. It’s a minimalist design, consisting of 1½”-wide straps with a 0.6″ strip of highly reflective material along each strap. The armbands are 2″ wide with 0.8″-wide reflective strips. I tested the vest’s reflectivity under real conditions, and it passed with flying colors, as seen in my accompanying video.

    The vest is ideal outerwear for anyone engaging in nighttime activities where they need to be highly visible to motorists. I’ve reviewed other similar lightweight vests, but this is the first one that included reflective arm bands (which can be worn on the arms or ankles).

    The reflective vest and armbands were provided to me for evaluation. I did not promise to post a review, but I stated that if I did review the product, it would be an honest, unbiased review.

    I got this because we like to take an evening walk with our 22 month old and a portion of it is along a roadway (although on a wide paved sidewalk). I wear light colored clothing but figured making our little guy even more visible was a good idea. This fits him quite well with plenty of room for him to grow as it’s not hard to adjust. I was worried he’d be pulling at it constantly but it seems to be comfortable enough that he doesn’t even notice it’s on as he goes about the business of being a fun loving toddler. It’s about as reflective as it could possibly be (see photo) and I’m sure approaching traffic can see him ambling along well before they approach. We didn’t see the need for the included armbands as he is already glowing so we just strapped them to the stroller. Shipping was very fast and everything was as advertised, happy with the purchase and would buy again.
