Hi there - does anyone know of any good short-sleeved, high visibility running tops with reflective strips? (for men)

 

If so links appreciated

white is more visible than the neon yellows, go to sports direct and get the white karrimore ones, cheap, long and short sleve available and they have reflective strips on too,

Or just get a reflective tabard with broad reflective stripes on.
It's getting cooler so this can go over the top of whatever kit you have on.

despite what above says, agree white is probably best colour but the key is reflective strips etc. - can't find much online, will have to drag myself round some shops I guess. Cheers.

White's all well and good unless there is snow down. Though this is one way to run on the road in snow without worrying about cars seeing you.

 Taken at the bottom of my drive in April. Three mile of empty road before the snow drift.

This is cheaper and more versatile :

Put it on over a tee. It's not going to make you hot. 

If its colder put it on over a long sleeve top.

If its really cold - put it on over a jacket. 

And as its an outer layer - you won't need to wash it as much as your reflective tee.
