      Comments about Amphipod Xinglet Flash LED Vest Safety:

      While preferring to run in daylight, Winter and less daylight has me running with a group on Tuesday nights. Purchased this vest at the suggestion all runners carry/wear some type of electric visibility device. I don't like carrying things, and searched around until finding this vest. It has been very reliable and provides excellent visibility, which was the point of getting it. Custom fit, don't realize I am even wearing it while running. Easy on and off. Would highly recommend for purchase. Cheers!

            Very disappointed in the vest. I run every morning in the dark. The front lights stopped working only after a couple of runs. The back lights work intermittently. I chock it up to poor manufacturing. Given the price, I would have thought the lights would have worked for a lot longer.

                The Xinglet vest is very easy to use, and adjusts to any body type. I am very small but can make it fit well. I was a little surprised that the LED lights are red, and that they flash. Also, very bright. I keep them on the back of the vest, but when also on in the front, the flashing is just too distracting. I keep the lights on in the back, but off in the front. A setting that turned off the flashing would have been welcome.

                This is a great product for visibility at night while running. The only problem is my group has had to return several because the LED lights stop working. Roadrunner has been great about letting us swap them for another.

                  Comments about Amphipod Xinglet Flash LED Vest Safety:

                  I could not be happier with my purchase. If you are looking for absolute visibility, look no further.

                  Pros: visibility, comfort, adjustable
                  Cons: brightness, clasp accessibility

                  One night I came home from work. It was dark, so I turned on the light in the foyer and went up the half flight of stairs into the living room. I saw something glowing on the couch. Forgetting I had placed this vest there, it freaked me out until I realized what it was. Just from a single 60-watt light bulb. Imagine what headlights from a car must do.

                  You're probably here because of the LED feature of the vest. Not only is the reflective visibility there, but the LEDs turn you into a moving laser-light show. Seriously, I was out on an evening run, and the LEDs were lighting up stop signs and other street signs.

                  I wouldn't necessarily call this a con, but the LEDs are almost TOO bright. When the front-facing LEDs are turned on, it almost burned my retinas to look down at them. Luckily, there are both front and rear-facing LEDs, so you can turn the front lights off if you choose.

                  Finally, I would like to mention the vest's comfortability. When first using the vest, it was a little tricky to get it to size correctly. But once I realized there are four adjustable straps (two shoulder, two waist), it became easy to find the right fit for my body type (I am 6'2'' and 175 lbs). You can choose it to be as tight or as loose as you please.

                  My only problem with the vest involves the clasps to enclose the vest around your chest. If you like it tight, it may be difficult to reach around your back to grab a strap and bring it around your midsection. I like to twist the vest to my side so it is more accessible.

                  Overall, I am very pleased with this purchase. I would highly recommend it. The LEDs give a nice backup to the reflective visibility features. I ultimately chose this vest because of the LEDS. It was a little pricey, but as a VIP, I just waited for one of their frequent 20% off deals. I believe having the LEDs is highly worth the extra money, as you are paying for your own safety.

                    I run at 5am, and now the cars move over long before I start to get nervous.

                    It never moves. I don't realize that I have it on until I see the reflection of the flashing lights in the stop signs.

                      Comments about Amphipod Xinglet Flash LED Vest Safety:

                      I run in Portland, Oregon at 5:30 in the morning and I have tried all kinds of reflective wear (lighted hat, flashing light for shoe, reflective vest . . .) and this vest is the best I have found. I am petite and I love the way it fits snugly (fully adjustable for larger builds), snaps on quickly and easily, and stays in place on my runs. The flashing LED lights make me very visible. I was hoping the LED lights would add to my headlamp in helping illuminate the sidewalk - they don't; but if you are looking for a comfortable, easy to use, safety vest, this is perfect.

                        This is great for night and/or early morning running, or any time you want to be seen! Fully adjustable and comfortable. I'm a smaller framed woman, and even the "small" reflective vests by other brands would flop around uncomfortably. Having the lighting option is also a major plus, if you're running with traffic. Definitely worth the extra money over a plain reflective vest!
