Versatility

People wear the JQP Sports Running Vest for a plethora of purposes. There's almost nothing that you can't do while wearing the vest. In fact, it's a good idea to use it when you're heading out for an outdoor adventure. It's going to help keep you safe and seen when you're out and about during low light conditions.

Customers will wear the JQP Sports Running Vest when they are running, jogging, or walking when the conditions outside aren't the best. Additionally, others will wear it while hiking or biking. Any outdoor activity will be safer with the use of the vest.

You can do more than just wear the vest during active times. Some consumers might choose to wear it when they're doing yard work if their yard is close to a busy street, others might decide to put it on if their job requires a safety vest.

Regardless of the activity, if you are outside during low visibility hours, you should consider the use of a reflective safety vest like the JQP Sports Running Vest.

Protection

The JQP Sports Running Vest offers a phenomenal amount of protection to the person wearing it. The biggest thing is that it will make sure that passers-by can see you with ease. If you're out in low light conditions such as dusk, dawn, or overcast days, you want to make sure that others can see you.

This is especially true for those who are running or walking on the side of a road. It's crucial that cars driving past can see you; otherwise, you run the risk of being hit. The goal is to make sure vehicles can see you so they can use caution when driving past.

The JQP Sports Running Vest does a stellar job at keeping you visible. The highly reflective vest keeps you visible from up to 650 feet away. Not only is the vest itself reflective, but it also comes with a set of four LED lights that you can pair with the vest to provide your own lighting source. You can connect the lights to the garment itself or strap it to another piece of clothing. If you're a cyclist, you may choose to attach it to your bike to help with your overall visibility.

When you're doing anything outside, it's vital that other people can see you. If not, you run the risk of injury, and that isn't good. To avoid potentially harmful accidents, it's essential to wear safety gear like the JQP Sports Running Vest. It's going to let others see you, so there are no preventable accidents.

Accessories

The JQP Sports Running Vest comes with a pack of four LED lights that will help keep you visible when heading out at night. You can wear them with the vest itself or used independently, whichever you prefer. If you are a biker, you can add the lights to your bicycle. Those who are taking their dogs out for a walk in the dark might choose to attach the light to their pet's collar. The possibilities are endless.

Each of the lights has three modes of operation. You can set it to a steady stream of light, a slow flash, or strobe. You'll be able to pick the lighting settings that you want with ease.

In addition to the JQP Sports Running Vest and the four pack of LED lights, there are also a couple of other accessories that you'll receive. You will also get a premium storage bag so you can safely store your vest and the lights. Additionally, the set comes with four batteries (to power the lights) and a screwdriver (to open the battery compartment).

Materials

The JQP Sports Running Vest uses a heavy, knitted polyester, which is typical for this type of product. Polyester is ideal because it is lightweight, yet super durable. You should have no problems with the materials ripping or tearing at all while you're wearing it. It's light enough that it won't feel like much of a burden but sturdy enough that it will stay intact during your adventures.

Breathability

Even though the polyester that makes up the JQP Sports Running Vest isn't breathable by nature. However, since the vest is mostly meshing, there are a plethora of holes in it for optimal breathability.

If you are going for a run, especially in the heat, throwing an extra layer of a vest can cause some significant discomfort. With the JQP Sports Running Vest, however, that isn't a huge issue. Yes, you're wearing an extra layer, but the ventilation is on point, allowing you to stay relatively cool as if you weren't wearing it.

Airflow is essential for your active apparel, whether you're talking about your running shorts, active tops, or even your safety vest. If you can't get air flowing through your clothes you run the risk of overheating. That isn't something anyone wants to deal with. Thankfully, it should be a non-issue with the JQP Sports Running Vest.

In addition to being breathable, the JQP Sports Running Vest is also waterproof. You won't have to worry about your vest soaking up moisture from either your sweat or the rain (if you encounter any). That said, it's not going to do much to keep you dry underneath the vest. Since it's mesh, moisture will easily reach your clothes and skin underneath. The garment itself, however, will stay dry.

Comfort

When you're heading out for any kind of adventure, you want to try to make sure that you're as comfortable as possible. The harder you push yourself on your workout the more uncomfortable you are going to be, no need to have your clothing add to that discomfort.

For the most part, customers have no problems with the comfort level of the JQP Sports Running Vest. It is lightweight, so you almost don't even notice it while you're out and about.

The problem, however, is that the vest is a bit rough. Customers have mentioned that if it's sitting directly on your skin, it will rub uncomfortably, causing skin irritation. You can prevent this by wearing a shirt under the vest, typically one with sleeves. If you are going shirtless or wearing a tank top, then the garment will still rub and irritate. It's not a problem most people encounter. However, it is worth noting if you like to head out sans a t-shirt.

Fit

The JQP Sports Running Vest will fit just about anyone. The adjustable vest has a universal fit, so there should be no problems getting the perfect fit for your body type. No matter your gender or size, the garment will fit you great.

The vest ensures that you will get the perfect fit no matter what. There are velcro closures that will help give you a comfortable fit from the chest to the ribs. The JQP Sports Running Vest is perfect for just about any body type.

For the most part, customers are happy with the way the JQP Sports Running Vest fits. Some reviewers even mentioned that it fits them perfectly over their winter coat with no problems.

Style

The JQP Sports Running Vest has the standard design that you would expect from a safety vest. It's only available in one color, which is the safety yellow. There are reflective strips located around the garment so you others can see you from every angle while you're out and about.

The LED lights that come with the JQP Sports Running Vest come in two different colors. You will get two each of red and blue for you to use while you're out and about.

Overall, customers are content with the way the JQP Sports Running Vest looks on them while they're out on an adventure.

Durability

When you're spending money on your running gear, you want to make sure that you're getting something that will stay intact for quite a while. It can become super frustrating when you go to use the gear and find that it is ripped or broken. That is not something that you should have to deal with when it comes to the JQP Sports Running Vest.

According to customers, or the lack of their complaints, the JQP Sports Running Vest has decent longevity. There doesn't seem to be problems with premature wear and tear when it comes to this vest.

The polyester fibers that make up the vest are tough enough to handle whatever you can throw at it. You're not going to have to worry about the vest ripping or tearing if you snag it on something while you're on the go.

One issue that a few consumers had, however, comes from the LED lights. There have been instances of them ceasing to work after it falls from a short distance. It isn't a problem that everyone has, but it has happened.

Overall, the JQP Sports Running Vest has a decent amount of durability and will be part of your active gear for quite a while.

Care

As with all of your running gear and athletic apparel, you want to make sure it remains clean and fresh. When you're out and about and start to sweat, chances are your vest will begin to smell bad. As long as you're taking proper care of your vest and cleaning it properly, there should be no problems with this.

It's super easy to keep this vest clean and smelling fresh. You can simply toss it in the washer and voila. You'll want to wash it on the delicate cycle, with cold water only. Don't bleach or use fabric softener, as that can decrease the lifespan of the vest.

You'll want to avoid washing the JQP Sports Running Vest with other rough materials such as jeans or work clothes. This can cause the reflective parts of the vest to pull off and therefore lessen the longevity.

Value

When you compare the JQP Sports Running Vest to other safety vests on the market, you might think the price is steep, but you shouldn't use that as a basis of cost. The other garments like this on the market are simple things, meant just to allow you to stay seen while you're out and about. This one does so much more.

Keep in mind that the JQP Sports Running Vest comes with more than just the vest itself. You will also get a four pack of LED lights, batteries, a screwdriver, and a carrying bag. The other garments with the cheaper price tags don't have all of the extras.

For everything that you get with the purchase, the JQP Sports Running Vest is a pretty decent value. Customers love the product and the great cost.

Bottom Line

If you like to get up and go but don't want to let the lack of sunlight stop you, you may want to consider the use of a safety vest like the JQP Sports Running Vest to keep you protected. You want to make sure that passers-by can see you, preventing any accidents that might happen.

Whether you're going for a long run, bike ride, or you're walking your dog, use the JQP Sports Running Vest to keep yourself, and others, safe and sound.
