What You Need If You Jog In The Dark

Pedestrians and joggers are difficult to see while driving early in the morning or late at night. While the sun is tucked away busy illuminating other parts of the world, those who are out on foot really have to be careful to make sure that drivers are able to see them.

With a great deal of drivers either distracted or under the influence, you really have to take safety in your own hands.

One way to do that is to make sure that you are visible to drivers. Even more so for those who run along the shoulder of the road instead of sidewalks or jogging paths. However, it’s still important for runners on jogging paths to be visible as well since they will still need to cross busy streets every once in a while.

They come in several colors including: yellow, red, blue, white, pink, green. It comes with one light so you can mix match colors if you want.

It’s also weather resistant so you don’t have to worry about the rain damaging the light.

  1. As someone who runs..sometimes in the early morning, these are great products. I use reflective velco straps (kind of like wrist bands) but it probably wouldn’t be a bad idea for me to use ones on my shoes too!

      1. Yes indeed. The nice thing is that most of my runs I can do big sections of it without having to cross streets, because the main boulevard on one side does not have cross traffic, but I still like to be seen by cars early in the morning.

  2. I prefer not to run in the dark… weird people come out after sundown, lol. However, if I happen to go out late, a safety vest is always worn along with LED straps. People are idiots… so I tend to watch everyone and everything and know what other’s are doing at all times. I’m offensive, not defensive. 😀
