Ask Trek Tech: Is There a Running Jacket That Looks Cool?

“Hey Billy, is there a running jacket that’s bright and reflective when I run at night, but doesn’t look crazy during the day? All the ones I’ve seen make me feel like a douche-y Christmas tree ornament.” - Marty in Northern California.

Yeah, nobody wants to look like a douche-y Christmas ornament. Your best bet would be Brooks Running’s PureProject Thermal Jacket ($200, It’s got a sharp-looking grey herringbone exterior without the bright neon or crazy patterns that you see on a lot of running outerwear, but the waterproof exterior, sweat-wicking liner, and media pocket showcase its running utility. The best part? The reflective pinstriping that covers the jacket is invisible until light shines on it. You’ll light up light a Christmas tree when headlights hit you, but you won’t look like a douche when the sun’s out.
