KEY CONSIDERATIONS

When you’re choosing high-vis kit, make sure you know where your money’s going

How high? Some high-vis items are just a bright colour, which won’t be enough if you’re running at night. Look for large areas of reflective material that bounces light from cars and streetlamps so you stand out.

Colour When it’s completely dark, it doesn’t really matter what colour your kit is – if it’s not reflective or lit up, you won’t be seen. However, fluoro colours are more visible in low light, such as on overcast days or at dusk, so think about when you’re likely to run when you choose your kit.

Placement Reflective elements or lights should ideally be placed on areas of high movement to maximise visibility to drivers and cyclists from a long way off: look for reflective patches on your cuff, or lower leg.
