I have been waiting SO LONG to write this post/review!! I am SO EXCITED!
After receiving and reviewing my Road ID a couple of months ago I continued to look into safety for runners. I prefer to run in the day but sometimes my schedule doesn’t allow for it. I have the option of going for a late night run at the gym but we all know the treadmill just doesn’t cut it sometimes. I’ll admit that I don’t often go for night runs because I am scared. Though I live in a relatively safe neighbourhood, there aren’t many street lights. How are cars supposed to see me? That’s when I looked into reflective clothing for runners and came across Run Naked Sports. Thanks to Joan, I was able to try and review two of their amazing tops.
I actually took the pictures in the dark to highlight the awesome reflectiveness 😀
This is the Deep V Neck which I got in a size XXS for a longer and more fitted look. This particular style is unisex and is available in sizes XXS – XL. I absolute love the blue and the way Run Naked is printed on an angle.
This is the women’s Racer Back which I got in a size XS. It fits slightly looser than the V Neck. I love how it is very open and comfortable. This style is available in sizes XS-L.
I also really love the detail on the back of both shirts.
There is a cute silhouette of a running girl, offering some reflection in the back as well.
Both tops are made up of a tri-blend (50% polyester / 25% cotton / 25% rayon) and are super soft and comfortable. They are also very lightweight and have durable double-stitched bottom hems. The “Run Naked” lettering is made from 3M Scotchlite Reflective Material, which return light back to a light source (ie. a car’s headlights), creating a bright image that drivers can see from a distance. So not only is Run Naked Sports apparel fashionable, but functional as well!
I know I will definitely be making use of both of these shirts, and not only for running. I wore the V Neck while shopping last night 😛
With the cooler weather coming up, I’m thinking about getting my hands on one of these:
Be seen. Be free. Be safe.
Update from Joan: If you aren’t comfortable sporting the “naked” part, she also makes tees that just say “RUN” with a fancy little stripe! See? Something for all of us!
Do you run at night or in the early mornings when it’s still dark out?
Do you own any reflective wear?
