When out with the team last week for out Monday 8pm run, I almost ran slap bang into a stationary runner. I asked the team if they saw her (they must have run no more than 2 feet away) and everyone said 'No!' Which brings me to why I am launching the gillet and the leggings. Why should winter, weather or bad street lighting stop us runners from taking our miles? We need to be seen!
The kit comprises of two tone stay-in-place cotton mix leggings with my instagram name @lookrunner (appropriate for night gear I thought) wrapped around from knee to ankle. On the back of the left thigh is an extra flash of reflective print in the form of that happy hashtag #runhappy. The leggins are super soft and have a key pocket at the back. Once they are on they don't slip, twist or wrinkle, making for a very happy run! The leggins sizing is as expected. From XS-XL/ 8 - 16
The top half gets a wind proof, soft gillet. In that fabulous high visibility safety yellow colour, we already have a head start on the darkness. This has a scalloped back, so it's also good when on the bike, but does come up small in size. (I'm wearing a 10 in the photo.) An elastic cord runs theough the bottom seam to allow for adjustment of fit and there are two zip pockets for phone/ keys too. With fully refletive logos on the front, running from waist to collar, a large A:RUN logo centre back, repeated reflective wording on the back on the shoulder area, plus reflective piping, I think we are covered from all heights and angles! Size 10 - 14. Also available in black....
