      Comments about Nathan Photon L.E.D. Vest Safety:

      The only thing short of a car accident that I've seen get the attention of NJ drivers. Does move around a bit but I'll keep adjusting the straps and I'm sure that will go a way. Cars actually slowed, stopped, and went around me! If you're like me and can't stand running on a treadmill even when it's dark in the morning and dark right after work...this is for you!!! Safety first. Light, will fit over anything and really gets thier attention.

        Comments about Nathan Photon L.E.D. Vest Safety:

        I am going to university in a rural town in South Carolina so the best options for running in the evening are sidewalks along the main drag. I got this vest because the drivers here are horrendous and barely every look for pedestrians. THis vest really brings attention to myself and lets the drivers and bicycle riders see me.
        The only con is that it bounces around quite a bit when wearing it, although you can adjust the straps around your waist to cinch it in more and that helps

          this is great and works from small to extra large people.
          some people had issues with battery but this is only used on bad days.

          also don't something you would submerge in water.

          i have a lot of gear but this is something that comes with me on every trip

            Comments about Nathan Photon L.E.D. Vest Safety:

            I am an avid early morning runner. Living up north, it is very dark at 5.30 am in the fall. I normally wear a reflective vest and some blinkies on my head lamp. Too many times cars came too close to me.

            This vest is exactly what i needed. Since wearing this vest, i haven't had any close calls. My fellow running buddies say they know when i am getting close cause they can see the blinkies from such a distance.

              Comments about Nathan Photon L.E.D. Vest Safety:

              This vest is nice and visible but if you're short or short-waisted, then this is way too big. I'm short-waisted and this vest was way too long and bounced around so much that it chafed my neck. I ended up cinching my Amphipod belt over it to hold it in place. It also tends to pick up odors quickly.

              Comments about Nathan Photon L.E.D. Vest Safety:

              Bought this for early morning runs on the roads near my house (no neighborhoods around with sidewalks). I'd say the only highlights - and the two selling points for me - of the vest are the fact that it has the LED lights and a stash pocket for a phone, key, gel, etc. in the front; that's about it. I wore it maybe half a dozen times before the buckle broke which I've since taped together but holy cow does this vest jostle around all over the place! One size does not fit all. I'm 5'3" about 130lbs and this vest bounced all over the place each step I took, very annoying. By the time I got it cinched tight enough to keep it from riding up it was uncomfortable around my waist. Needless to say, I was quite disappointed with this product and would not recommend it. If you want lights, get a waist clip, arm bands, or something else and skip this vest for something with less bells and whistles and more function.

              I purchased this product for myself and my son for early morning runs. This vest has great reflective properties and the LED's are bright and bold. The zipper pocket can hold your iPhone/Droid. It is very lightweight and adjustable to fit an adult or child.
              It does get a little jiggly when running. I would like to have an additional LED strip on the back.

                The vest is lightweight, easy to wear, and very bright. However, the main reason I bought this vest was for the LED lights. Unless you take the batteries out after each use, they only last for one run.
