Invisible by day, reflective by night 

27 Feb

Running or walking at night is dangerous, the road are not always well lit and we are invisible to the cars because of the dark colors we are wearing.

I’m not fan of the yellow reflective safety vest because it’s not really a fashion item (doesn’t match my style) …

I found something better … something invisible by day and that makes me visible by night … thanks to the Albedo 100 reflective spray.

How does it work?

  • Shake well the spray can
  • Start spraying your clothes, shoes, backpack, …

Invisible by day, the reflective particles will be revealed by the lights of the cars!

Wash your clothes and the spray will disappear, then spray again.
I ordered my spray can on Amazon.

My first spray was for my shoes and black backpack.

I cut a carton in the shape of a flamingo of and sprayed it on my black backpack. Not really happy of the result, it’s not invisible on the black textile … maybe I sprayed too close or over sprayed … I will try again.

Then I sprayed my brand new kicks from Vans. Pretty cool and like promised invisible by day and reflective when lit. I wore them during a snow storm in NYC, walking in the snow and it’s still reflective!!

This is fun, and really answers a need for road safety when you walk, run, bike or skate at night.

PS:  did you know they also even invented a spray for your favorite pet!!!
