What Makes The Reflective Running Vest A ‘Must Have Accessory’?
The necessity and benefits of the Reflective Running Vest by Just Active become most evident during early morning and late evening runs or when cycling to work or school.
Whilst providing excellent visibility and safety when on the roads, unlike regular safety vests, these running vests are designed specifically for sporting activities for all. According to Sofia White, Head of Customer Care at manufacturer Just Active, “what makes the reflective running vest so unique and so necessary is its combination of design, functionality, safety and simplicity. It just does what it says on the tin, so to speak”.
Early morning runs, late evening walks or cycling to and from work, these are the typical activities where the reflective running vest proves its worth. Whilst providing excellent visibility and safety when on the roads, unlike regular safety vests, these running vests are designed specifically for sporting activities for all including men, women and children.
According to Sofia White, Head of Customer Care at manufacturer Just Active, “what makes the reflective running vest so unique and so necessary is its combination of design, functionality, safety and simplicity. It just does what it says on the tin, so to speak”.
As good quality reflective running gear, a vest should be lightweight so that the runner or cyclist feels negligible additional weight allowing for best performance. The mesh fabric used should be breathable allowing air to pass through the vest and any sweat to evaporate providing greater comfort. The vest should have a relatively snug fitting to avoid excessive movement while running and the length should fall above the hips to allow for optimal movement.
In terms of safety, the vest should be a luminous yellow color or similar to provide excellent visibility in day light conditions. In low light or dark conditions the vest should have ample reflective strips, all around the runner to provide 360-degree visibility. Sofia White from Just Active explains that “vests using 3M Scotchlite technology, the leading supplier of reflective materials, provide a far superior level of night time visibility by reflecting light back to the source (e.g. car with headlights) from well over 1000ft”. The reflective qualities of 3M Scotchlite materials on the Just Active reflective running vest can be seen here.
To provide added functionality, the vest should be equipped with a large enough zipper pocket to allow storage of the latest iPhone or Samsung. However, this is not ideal for all as the added bounce of carrying heavy objects may affect exercise performance. Nonetheless the pocket is very practical for carrying light items such as cash, a card or a key.
There are a few excellent offers available in the market where the manufacturer is offering additional gear as a bonus with the reflective running vest. One example is the Just Active reflective running vest with 2no. bonus 3M armbands and storage bag, available exclusively at Amazon or at www.justactivelife.com.
