I got this tank during a sale and I LOVE IT !
I don't run outside in the dark a lot, so I use it mainly for work. I work at a Middle School in Everett and I do Parking duty very early in the morning when it's still dark. This tank has been a life saver. Parents have complemented me on the tank/vest and said they can clearly see me ( it was hard before).
I have seen other tights here with some sort of reflection, but I wish you would come up with something exactly like this.
Reflective coating flaking off
I was really excited to get this tank to use for low light activities. I love the concept and I like how it fits, but unfortunately, it arrived with at least 4-5 small spots where the reflective coating has flaked off. If this is the condition it arrived in, I can't imagine what it would look like after use and after being washed.
- All-over reflective
- Poor quality
No Denying You'll be Seen
I am *very* afraid of being hit by a car. I also LOVE running in the winter and work 9-5 so most of my running is in the dark in the city. I have only had a few runs in this top, but have random people on the street stop me to ask where it is from. I also plan to use it on my bike commute to be better seen. I feel safer in this top. It does remind me of a basketball jersey/ my 90s track uniform that was probably a re-purposed basketball uniform, because of the color and weight of the fabric, but it is stretchy. I am also looking forward to wearing this and not having to constantly readjust my vest or worry that the Velcro is pilling my top or that the reflective bits are covered up by my hair or whatever. It makes me PUMPED to think about all the great miles I'll run in this top!
- So Reflective!
- Heavier Fabric
They can see me!
I have been doing a lot of early morning and late night running with the summer temps and I live in a town that doesn't play well with runners. Cars can definitely see me coming in this top. The fabric is a little stiff, but comfortable when running. I have not had any issues with chaffing, the seams are smooth. I have some friends that like it so much, they went and bought their own (hello $20 coupon!!!). It's very bright, but I do wish I bought a size up so I could have a little more room to wear a layer under it. It does fit to size - this is just my preference. I can wear a fitted long sleeve under, I would just appreciate a little more room.
- I feel safe and I know I'll be seen on the roads.
- Nothing. Wish I bought a size up so I could fit a thicker layer under... more of a personal preference.

Picked this up just before a relay- wore it for the first time on my night leg & so many runners commented on how super bright this was!! I felt ~seen~!! This will be great for pre-dawn run commutes this fall. It layered nicely over a long sleeve Flyte top.
- So, so, so bright!
