Reflective became a must-have detail on running jackets and shoes – not for aesthetics, but for protection! The night-time runners find reflective material a godsend because it keeps them visible to traffic, and helps maintain a safe environment. Then comes Nike’s all new Vapor Flash Jacket, taking reflective usage to the next level; the entire jacket is made of the reflective material, shining brightly at any hit of light, allowing the runner to be visible at 360 degrees. The jacket itself is constructed of polyester twill with 400-candlepower reflectivity, and glass spheres are embedded into the fabric, serving the purpose reflecting incoming light onto the upcoming running path. Too much 3M? The jacket is reversible, with a toned-down matte grey with just select hints of the flashy material detailing the inner side. Now the question is, would you throw down $350 for this jacket? Head to Nikestore if you can’t say no, and check out the video detailing the Vapor Flash Jacket in action below!
