Highlight: Lightweight, packable, all-weather jacket with reflectivity

On Running’s outstanding new jacket uses Japanese-sourced resilient, weatherproof, DWR-treated material that is tear-proof and flashed with reflective taping for 360-degree ventilation and visibility. The four-way stretch, lightweight jacket packs into its own pocket, and the comfortable hood features a snug-down design so it won’t interfere with your field of vision.

Highlight: Compact front and rear visibility

See and be seen with the Sprinter’s compact, 200-lumen headlamp and rear blinking red light. This rechargeable, weatherproof headlamp allows for you to adjust the front beam strength to get an even longer burn time out of the rear-mounted, USB-charged lithium battery.

Strobes are all the rage for ragers, but why not use their attention-getting qualities to keep you alive when running at night?

Highlight: Put adhesive reflection anywhere

Stick it and reflect brightly in your current favorite running clothing with Tenacious Reflective Fabric Tape. This durable adhesive tape can be cut to size and attached to jackets, hats or packs—and leaves no sticky residue.
