Going for a run at night is a great way relieve stress, lose weight — and have your backside wind up on the service end of a careless driver’s front bumper if you aren’t careful.
Vollebak’s newest piece of activewear, a lightweight and ultra-soft shirt with 20 retroreflective markers that are visible in pitch black conditions, is here to keep your back end bumper-free.
Constructed from smooth-to-the-touch glass beads embedded into fabric, the Nano Meter 555 Midlayer’s disc-shaped markers look bright white when they’re struck with light and are strategically placed so the eye will identify their wearer as a human within a quarter second.
They also won’t identify their wearer as an overly paranoid human because the markers show up as a subtle matt design detail in the daylight and blend in with the rest of the wicking shirt.

Besides the markers, the shirt itself is a hue of green that’s so intense, the eye can detect just one pixel of the shade in 100,000 grey ones. (For the technical nitty-gritty, Vollebak has it here.)
Equipped with heat-retaining technology that also promises supreme breathability. Get one for $195.
Stay light on your feet.
