Tuvizo Releases The Third In A Series Of Info Articles On Reflective Gear
The third article in this series on the best reflective gear for athletes will focus on walkers. Tuvizo has released two previous articles for runners and cyclists with advice on what is the best to wear to ensure one is seen when out exercising.
The Tuvizo Reflective Running Vest http://www.amazon.com/Tuvizo-Reflecti... provides high visibility in the day and excellent reflective qualities at night for running, cycling, walking and other outdoor pursuits. This easily adjustable, lightweight, elastic, reflective belt gives a versatile comfortable fit over light sports gear or thicker outdoor clothing as can be seen in the video, and is a good alternative to looser bulkier reflective gear.
It is very possible for people looking for high visibility and reflective gear to be confused by what gear should be used for what occasion. High visibility clothing or gear includes neon, day glow or luminous coloured kit, also possibly including LED based or basic reflective lights. These colours appear super bright or day glow to the human eye because of their ability to absorb and reflect not only the normal colour spectrum, but also the ultra violet spectrum. These colours can therefore reflect two to three times the amount of colour that "normal" colours do. High visibility clothing and gear should worn during daylight hours to ensure maximum visibility and to ensure vehicle drivers notice you on the road. Colours such as grey, black, white and even darker colours of the rest of the spectrum blend in with surroundings and do not make the wearer stand out against their background.
Reflective walking gear should be worn at night, when high visibility coloured gear makes little or no difference to the user's visibility. Reflective gear can be made of different materials, ranging from retro reflective gear to LED lights and basic light reflectors. Retro reflectors reflect light back at the source therefore allowing vehicle drivers with head lights on to see as the gear you are wearing shines at them very brightly. It is important to remember to wear sufficient reflective gear that you have 360 degree reflectivity, and to ensure that ideally your torso is illuminated as this is the biggest solid area of your body, and the area that makes you most easily identifiable as a human.
In summary, the Tuvizo Team recommends that all walkers ensure they wear reflective or high visibility gear depending on the time of day and the prevailing conditions. Tuvizo's Marketing Director Jo adds, "We hope this article series makes people think just a little bit more about their visibility when out walking, running or cycling. Being seen early by a vehicle driver can make the difference between life and death. Remember to improve your own safety on the roads by ensuring that wearing reflective gear becomes a habit."
