Winter Running: Be Seen with Nathan Sports

Over the next few weeks I will be running a “Winter Running” feature, looking at different aspects of exercising during the colder months. Posts will range from skincare, to how to deal with asthma and cold weather. Let me know if you have anything specific you’d like to see featured!

First up I have a range of kit I was sent by Nathan Sports. These pieces are from their Visibility Range, and are designed with performance and aesthetics in mind, to help you stay safe and be seen whilst exercising in the dark.

LED Lights

The Run Longer Light Series allows us to extend our day outside, with smart, compact, easily-configurable, high-visibility clip-on and strap-on lighting.

Zephyr Fire Handtorch (1)
This lightweight torch has an inbuilt siren for added security, as well as a cleverly angled head that will easily shine on the path in front of you. A rear facing LED gives you visibility from the back too.

LightBender (2)
This is one of my favourite items, as it simply wraps around your arm and can be added to any outfit for extra visibility. It doesn’t move when running and has a constant light or flashing mode.

Wearing the LightSpur, LightBender and Strobelight

LightSpur (4)
This genius bit of kit is something I will always wear now! In fact you can just leave it on your shoes, and use for running, cycling or walking the dog. A great secure lightweight LED spur that just slides onto your heel.

HyperBrite Strobe (8)
This is the smallest but brightest light in the range, and can be clipped anywhere on your clothing or backpack.

StrobeLight (7)
Another super bright light, with a pink glow. Again it can be clipped easily onto your kit, and is lightweight and waterproof.

Reflective Gear

Wrist Runner 2 (3)
The Wrist Runner is a handy carrying option for credit card, ID, or cash and also has the added benefit of being brightly coloured and reflective.

Cold Weather Gear

No Matter What Gear™ is all about stylish designs and performance fabrics, providing dialed-in climate control for a wide variety of cold weather conditions. The LIGHTWAVE™ LED technology (rechargeable and washable), along with strategically-placed reflective hits, gives you 360-degree visibility for safer and longer running, no matter what.

Domelight (6)
This great lightweight beanie has front white lights, and red LEDs on the rear. It also has earbud holders and the women’s version even has a hole for a ponytail! I haven’t worn this on a run yet, but it seems like a really useful piece of kit.

SpeedShift (5)
These cold weather running gloves have red LED lights for added visibility, and a brushed fleece lining for extra warmth. I imagine they would be great for cycling too, and even feature TruTouch technology on the first finger for smartphone use, and a special chamois on the thumb for wiping your nose! Nathan Sports have truly thought of everything 🙂

How do you stay safe and be seen in the winter?

    Love this! As a cyclist and runner it's super important that I am seen when light is low. I currently wear a high vis jacket and backpack cover. I have lights on my bike but not on me, so not when running!

    I absolutely love the light bender, I've been wearing it on all my late and early runs, and really like it, so easy to carry around too.

    Apart from a headtorch, I've never thought illuminating myself! Thanks for this post – it's highlighted my need to be, er, highlighted!

    I keep seeing things like these pop up- it is really important. When I am driving home (through a well- lit business park) I am always terrified I am going to knock down a pedestrian as the students from the uni tend to just wander out in front of cars. I think when you are walking or running, the pavements can seem well lit, but when you are in a car the pedestrians are so hard to spot. I must say I hate the flashing lights though- I find it so hard when cyclists wear them to pin point where they are and which direction they are travelling in, whereas solid beams are easy to pick up.. I have reflective gear, including a very bright bib that I wear over other clothes, but no lights just yet.
