When running at night, it’s especially important that you can hear what’s happening around you. What I love about these headphones is that they sit on top of your ears instead of in them. I own these headphones myself and often choose them for busy-city run days or anytime I need to be aware of my surroundings. If you’re an audiophile who can’t bear leaving your music at home, but still want to be safe, these are for you.
As far as night running gear goes, the brighter the better. This is not the time to be concerned if you’re color coordinated or if the bright yellow of your shirt makes you feel nauseous. Embrace the neon. Guys, check out this compression shirt from Under Armour. Ladies, this tank from Under Armour may be for you. Both are great ways to make yourself visible when you’re running at night.
It’s time to bring out your wild side in the name of safety. These shorts will get the attention of a passing spaceship, so you’ll no doubt be seen while running on the road.
