Exercising at night can be a dangerous endeavor. Unfortunately, there have been more tragedies than our hearts bear to take. Surprisingly little has been done to improve safety when it comes to exercising at night. Most innovation goes into the shoes we wear, and it makes sense, but it still has not improved safety while exercising at night. There is, however, some glimmer of hope when it comes to increasing safety and it is a new LED jacket from Badger.
Their new sportswear Badger 360 LED Jacket is an innovative project that was actually funded through Kickstarter not too long ago. What makes the LED jacket so interesting is its safety features. I don’t think I have come across something so simple yet groundbreaking in a long time, especially not when it comes to sportswear.
The concept is brilliant, and as you might have understood by now, it incorporates LED lights attached to the jacket. Well, they are actually sewn into the jacket and when turned on they give off a light that can be seen 360 degrees around the wearer. This LED jacket is of course not only for people that love to exercise at night but also for people out walking their dog or simply on their walk back home from a friends.
Simple innovation like this is the only thing it takes to completely overhaul our personal safety while out at night. With this LED jacket, you will never again have to worry about people or drivers not seeing you. Sure, if they fall asleep at the wheel it’s a whole other issue, but the purpose of the LED jacket is to help keep you safe in dark conditions. The jacket is available over at Badger’s official website and can be purchased for the geeky price of $149.00. If you run a lot during nighttime, we suggest you check this out to make sure that you are safe. Safety does not have a price. Nothing is more valuable than your life.
