Product Review: CEP Reflective Gear


I remember when fall back meant an extra hour at the bars. Sigh. Now it means running in the dark and trying to be safe. While it is always important for athletes to focus on safety, now is the time to remember to sport the reflective gear to make sure you are seen.

Most of you are familiar with the high-performance products by CEP Compression but they just recently announced their new reflective line of apparel including the Reflective Windbreaker, Reflective Tights, and Reflective Long Sleeve Shirt. This gear is what you need to stay visible from dusk to dawn with this 360-degree reflective apparel.

One of my favorite items in this collection is the reflective windbreaker. The purple color scheme is eye catching and unique with a swirled graphite pattern entwined within it. It’s warm enough to wear on cooler days and you can easily layer up underneath it, when needed.

The Reflective Windbreaker features a unique lightning pattern across the back, front, and arms for visibility during low-light runs. Water-repellent and windproof materials will keep runners dry and warm in any condition. With a perfect blend of mesh and SMART stretch materials, this windbreaker ensures a comfortable blend of breathability, fit, and freedom of movement.

The Reflective Tights are the perfect leggings for any workout. Using innovative Smart Reflective technology, legs will illuminate with any passing light. CEP’s Tightfit Technology keeps the tights snug for a comfortable, supportive fit throughout any activity. Featuring a large pocket on the back waistband for phone, keys, or wallet. Premium materials provide the perfect temperature management, allowing runners to stay cooler, go farther, and make their next workout the best one yet.

The Reflective Long Sleeve Shirt provides 360-degree visibility with Smart Reflective technology, and is plush lined to keep runners warm and dry in any condition. Designed with both style and comfort in mind, Smart Stretch technology provides a perfect fit with maximum freedom of movement.

It’s also a great time to brush up on the other articles Chicago Athlete has published about athlete safety.
