I've just started running again after a 3 and a half year gap, and I'm looking for some new gear. I'd ideally like a high viz long sleeved top that has got a pocket that would fit a smart phone or iPod, but I can't seem to find anything suitable online that mentions pockets! Could anybody point me in the right direction?
Thanks Millsy, I'll nip into Sports Direct when I'm next in town.
+1 for hi viz waistcoat.
Got a Nathan Photon LED vest for my sister for Christmas to wear over normal running gear. Not cheap but lights up like a lighthouse it is so bright and very light weight and breathable too.
I would rather wear a gilet / vest than a sleeved jacket. I have an excellent Gore running wear one, but these are pricey although it gets constant use and is wind proof.
As for the phone, well I find a small running bumbag type thing is great, one that is just the right size for a phone and couple of gels or ipod.
+1 for hi viz waistcoat... It doesn't need washing very often so you wouldn't need multiple hi viz tops.
Also, +1 for bum bag / SPI belt... Plenty of room for phone, iPod, a few gels, key, etc... I think typically they're not waterproof so if it's likely to rain whilst your out then put your phone in a zip lock type bag first.
+1 for hi vis vest i picked mine up cheap in sports direct and now i can wear my summer rain jacket all year long so even if the vest was £30 it would have been a massive saving compared to two jackets.
if you just want to wear one layer, you could try a hi viz cycling jersey as they have a pocket at the back. I've a cheap one I got from Aldi, and it works well for both cycling and running
How about one of these???http://www.sportsdirect.com/karrimor-x-lite-reflective-jacket-mens-452004?colcode=45200490I looked at them earlier in the week, & was quite impressed!
