"Triathlon doesn't build character. It reveals it."
Dicks also carries the same jacket in different colors for the same base price.
I will suggest, though, that most of us don't wear the same pair of tights day in and day out (unless you're doing a LOT of laundry). A good reflective jacket, ankle bands, or even clip/strap-on lights may be more useful. It's not always cold enough to need a jacket and/or tights when I'm out running after dark, so having options that work in any temperature is a good idea. The reflective vest definitely fits into that category.
Here's a whole page full of lights and reflective accessories you can add to any outfit: http://www.runningwarehouse.com/catpage-REFLECTIVE.html
I was given the RoadID Supernova light with wrist strap as a gift a few years ago and use it when I'm running on streets with no sidewalk after dark, or just if it's rainy/snowy out such that visibility is reduced. I also have some reflective velcro ankle straps (pant leg straps for cycling) that I've got for free that can be used to increase my impact after dark.
If visibility is reduced, remember that a flashing light always attracts more attention than a steady one. Even with the Supernova and another Saucony clip-on light I won at a race on me, I sometimes have to resort to waving my arms around and yelling to get drivers to actually LOOK. It's the worst when the driver is waiting to make a right-hand turn off a side street I'm passing, since I always run facing traffic - they're only looking to their left for a gap to pull out, and will do so right into you.
Good luck - cheers!
ill advised racing inc.
I tried them on in the London Nike store. They are close-fitting, feel like support gear. Comfy. Very, very reflective in the silver (although some of the reviews say that the reflective stuff is not long-lasting). I didn't buy them, cos I don't run enough to justify the cost.
