Product Details

We started this design exercise with one, over-arching observation: reflective safety vests for runners and athletes are really ugly. And while yes, we believe in safety first, we also care deeply about design - and don't think form and function have to box each other out. Hello Lightning Layer, a new safety garment unlike anything on the market. It starts with a hardcore, first-responder level reflective mesh (sourced from an industry leader in France). Then it's combined with our breathable, durable athletic mesh. Lastly, it's all brought together in a fits-over-anything silhouette (from sports bra to outerwear), including just right details, like a zip pocket and an adjustable hem. We like to think we put the sizzle in safety.

- athletic mesh body (87% poly / 13% spandex)
- highly reflective panels at chest, back, and hip
- racerback design
- side zip pocket
- cinch cord at waist for adjustable fit
- 21" body length (size s/m)

Stylish Safety

I bought this for running in the dark in NYC, as well as for trails, but I have also found it very useful for biking in the city. Having the additional reflective panels makes me very visible to vehicles, other bikers, and pedestrians. The top is light, isn't bulky (fits easily into my bag so I can take it along with me to work), and fits over my tops easily. I highly recommend this for anyone who wants/needs to be seen.

PERFECT for early risers.

I purchased this in a S/M in the black color. It's incredible. I didn't even realize this was a clothing item I needed, but now it's indispensable. Granted, probably not one of my Oiselle items that will move into casual wear (haha) but it's super breathable, makes me crazy visible to passing cars, and once it's on, I don't even remember I'm wearing it.

LOVE this vest, the design, and reflectivity/details. Tops I am 6/8/10. Tried the SM/Med, was too short for my liking in my torso, yet still loose enough to wear a tank underneath. Will order in L/XL for better fit to cover my torso.

Safety First, with Style

I have never been much of a reflective item wearer, but with the dark Seattle mornings, I decided it was time to take the plunge and get this for safety reasons. I was unsure if wearing it over a long sleeve would leave me feeling like I was suffocating on runs, but it performs extremely well. The side pocket is an extra plus for holding a key or gel!

For sizing purposes, I am 5'9" and weight 135 and got the S/M. There was still a little extra room, but with the drawcord to cinch it at the bottom, it was perfect and did not move at all.
