Running at night or early in the morning can be scary. And no, I’m not just saying that because I spend all my free time listening to true-crime podcasts.

Even though you’re doing your body good by working up a sweat, you could still be putting yourself at risk if you’re not wearing glowy, reflective clothing. When you’re running in low light, it can be really hard for cars to see you. Luckily, there’s no need to change your routine. One easy way to help drivers spot you is by upgrading your activewear collection with clothing that glows in the dark or reflects when light bounces off of it.

From leggings that light up like the night sky to sneakers that are flashy in the best way, these are the reflective finds to stock up on before your next run.

The best reflective activewear pieces for your runs

1. Lululemon Fast and Free High-Rise Crop II Reflective, $118

Don’t let the camo print on these leggings fool you. They have reflective details by the ankles that ensure you’re easily seen in the dark.

2. Adidas Women’s Nite Jogger Shoes, $130

These sneakers are just as flashy at night as they are during the day thanks to all the reflective details.

3. Nike City Reflect Running Tights, $140

Beyond the cool color (I mean, could it be prettier?), these high-waisted tights have reflective seams around the hips that can’t be missed.

4. The North Face Women’s Flight Futurelight Jacket, $280

This running jacket won’t just keep you warm. The fully waterproof and super-breathable find also has reflective areas that help you stay visible.

5. Nike Running Vest, $23

No matter what you’re wearing underneath, the reflective panels on this vest make sure you can always be spotted in the dark.

6. RION Workout Essentials Laser Glow Leggings, $23

These running leggings keep you cool, stay put with a drawcord, and have reflective areas that keep you safe.

7. Athleta Rainier Reflective Tight in Powerlift, $108

At a glance, these look like normal leggings. But once it’s dark and they’re hit by light, speckles of reflective material light them up like stars in the night sky.

8. Adidas by Stella McCartney Run Long Zip Cuff Tights, $120

During the day, you have a sleek design. Then at night, the reflective detailing glows.

Leggings with pockets are the best things since dresses with pockets. Trust me. Speaking of leggings, these under-$50 pairs stand up to even your sweatiest, most high-intensity workouts.
