Be Seen This Summer with Brilliant Reflective DIY #Giveaway

Don’t get me wrong, I’m excited for summer to come to Chicago. That said, the summer heat can get runners and bikers out before the sunrise or after dark to beat the heat. I was offered the opportunity to check out Brilliant Reflective DIY reflective safety strips to make my gear safer in the dark.

Brilliant Reflective Safety Strips are made with 3M™ Scotchlite™ Reflective Material. They come in iron-on and stick-on options. The strips’ exclusive colorization process allows for high visibility at night, without being noticeable during the day.

You can add strips to your gear to be seen or to blend in!

You can just stick them on your helmet, bike or shoes or iron them on your active wear and you’re good to go! Brilliant Reflective Safety Strips are available in black, red, blue and purple to blend in or to stand out. They have a placement guide to help you put them in the most effective places on your clothes and gear.

I received a stick-on pack and an iron-on pack. I shared with my fave Iron Woman, Lynn, for her biking.

I tested the stick-on black on my A Sweat Life hat. It’s super easy to peel and apply the strips. You can cut them to change the size and shape, as well.

With low light, I could barely see the black strip on my hat. With the flash (right), The reflective material is super bright. I could definitely be seen on the running/biking path with that reflector. These stick-on strips are great for helmets, bags and shoes.

Bad photo, but see the awesome reflectiveness in the dark!

    Right now I’m training for an August 5K. Really I’m base building for Fall half marathons, but my next goal race is an August 5K.

    I would use this on morning runs because I’m going to have to start running before work soon, with the heat. It would be good for when I’m running the bridge.

  2. Kris says:

    I’m training for the Madison mini.!

  3. robin p says:

    i’m a runner and sometimes run at night. i’m training for a half marathon coming up. this would come in handy!

  4. Angela Saver says:

    This would keep me safe when running/walking at night. I am just getting ready for a 5K.

  5. Amanda C. says:

    They were giving away the stick-on’s at the Boston expo! I would love to try the iron-on – they are supposed to stay put through the wash. This seems way more cost effective than me trying to buy neon everything 🙂

  6. Gregory Rice says:

    Most of my runs are at night. This would help.

  7. Deb E says:

    I live along a bus route and there are also many bikers whizzing along my route too. I have some reflective stripes on a lot of my gear but more always helps. Currently I’m just training for fitness.

  8. Jenny says:

    I am training for RnR Chicago, and am always looking for reflective items!

  9. Jen says:

    I am not training right now, but these would be great for early morning dog walking!

  10. gloria patterson says:

    They would keep my niece safe while running early/late in the day. My niece is a mother of two, full time job and part time party planner. This would keep her safe!!

  11. Maggie says:

    I would put these on my bike helmet! I typically wear my Nike Flash jacket when I ride a Divvy, but I don’t need a jacket in the summer.

  12. I am not training for anything now unless you can count my training to train to train to train for a BQ.

  13. Edye says:

    This would be for my friend who is training for a marathon.

  14. Megan says:

    I like to run early in the morning (often before it’s light out) to beat the heat. These would definitely be helpful for that!

  15. Allison says:

    I have a lot of dark clothing, so having these would be super helpful to make sure I’m seen as I’m running through intersections!

  16. Jennifer H. says:

    We don’t have sidewalks.

  17. John H. says:

    We don’t have any sidewalks near our house.

  18. liz lew says:

    Im training for Dopey

  19. wen budro says:

    I am training for a marathon. I would use these to be seen in the early mornings when it’s dark.

  20. Caroline says:

    Just had my big race yesterday, but am looking at some trail races for the fall!

  21. Jerry Marquardt says:

    I think that these would be very great for being safer at nighttime. I would love these in the event of an emergency.
