To combat the heat, we often go running around the morning early or late in the afternoon. But before you start recording miles at sunrise and / or at dusk, you need to light up a bit first: high visibility and reflective clothing is absolutely necessary to keep you safe (and seen) on the road. And while the pink card, yellow highlighter and orange blush may not be our favorite colors in the world, we believe there are some nice, safe options out there these days. These are some of the freshest and brightest garments we can find. (Women's clothing appears in the first place, men's clothing begins in the middle of the page.)
Keep your upper half in view with the help of the Brooks Nightlife Equilibrium SS shirt. The lightweight, fitted, soft t-shirt is available in two fun, but strong colors (green and yellow / black) and offers 360 degrees of reflectivity, so you can see it from all angles, at all times. Mesh has also been strategically placed (under the arms and along the back) for additional ventilation and flat seams to prevent chafing. It is also available for men. $ 40, brooksrunning. com
If you want to see in the dark, just put a flashlight on top. The New Balance Tri-Viz cap has L-shaped LEDs under the wing that shine on three levels (low, medium and high), plus a strong pink fringe difficult to miss. This light, which is formed by hat-shaped mesh, evaporates sweat quickly, keeping the head comfortable day and night. It is also available for men. $ 30, newbalance. com
