Illuminated gear from Inlighten gets you noticed – running or otherwise

Keep Moving with Inlighten Fiber Optic Jackets

Running overnight or even long one-day relays means having some reflective or illuminated running vests at the ready for your leg(s). But what about when you’re not running? Those relay vans weigh just as much if they hit you in the exchange area as they would if you’re hit while running.

Inlighten is the name of a Canadian company with a line of glowing clothes. I’m not talking about a sweatshirt with some lights in it, I’m talking about a sweatshirt that literally glows… and, as a bonus, can be set to pulse or blink to music (called “sound reactivity”). Of course, there’s also an app to control the color.

The gear was created by Eddy Song in part to be worn to electronica music shows, but he took it one step further and used lightweight materials you can move in. I mean, have you ever been to a house music club? It’s one helluva workout! I haven’t tried the gear out, just read about it, but I’m making the assumption if it was designed for clubbing it would work well for running.
