I spend a lot of time during the winter months running the dark. And I’ve had my fill of ill-fitting reflective vests.
Which is why I love the reflective clothing from RelaxReflect.
Stripe and Star Leggings (DryFlex MicroPoly)
Random Stripes Tee (DryFlex MicroPoly)
All American Skull Cap (Brush DryFlex)
Not from Relax Reflect:
Nike Dry Fit Hat (under my RR cap)
Mizuno Wave Nirvana 7s
I find that the items fit pretty well and are good quality.
- If you order leggings, I recommend telling them what length inseam you prefer.
- If you’re between sizes, I would suggest going with the larger size for tops. Especially if you plan to layer.
- The cap has a ponytail hole which I appreciate! I don’t mind altering a $5 hat from Old Navy, I didn’t want to do the same to a $30 hat. I’m weating the cap over a Nike hat.
In addition, RelaxReflect provides great customer service! The stitching on the waistband of my leggings started unraveling after a couple wears, and I was able to return the pants and receive a replacement pair. I was also told that they replaced their seamstress, and my unraveling leggings were probably sewn by their old seamstress.
Overall, I recommend RelaxReflect if you run in the dark and are tired of frumpy reflective vests, or if you are doing a nighttime race, like Ragnar. In addition to adult sizes (for men and women), RelaxReflect also carries children sizes, so you can keep your kids safe when they are outside in the dark or dusk. You can also create custom t-shirts on their site.
