best reflective vests running cycling men women

The great outdoors were meant to be enjoyed and we wholeheartedly believe that. While there isn’t much that can go wrong if you are out for a jog or cycling, it is best to make sure that everything will be under control.

Those who exercise at night are at a higher risk, if they don’t have the right clothing and gear. The solution to this are reflective jackets or other similar options.

Several weeks ago, we wrote a piece on reflective jackets that will keep you safe while outdoors. In this selection, we will be looking at some reflective gear, which are a bit different.

These are vests, that we have selected this time, and the reason for that is simple. They won’t be an extra layer on and they will not affect mobility and comfort. They are unisex vests, specially designed for safety in dim light and especially at night.

Time to take a look at what we picked for you:

Fjallraven Keb Jacket for Men – Review

Fjallraven Keb Jacket Men Review

As unlikely as it is, sometimes it does rain in Summer. And more often than not, it catches everybody unprepared. The temperatures drop and tank tops don’t cut it. Not to mention that there isn’t light raining either, during this period.

Well, what do you do? All the jackets are stashed away and you’d be lucky to find where you last put the umbrella, two months ago. The thought of wearing a jacket in Summer sounds ridiculous, and you are not wrong.

Those into hiking, camping and who love to be outdoors for longer than the occasional jog, are the ones who need to be prepared for all scenarios. And yet, packing a jacket is not the first thing on the mind.

Luckily, we have once again gone on the lookout and yes, we did indeed find a brilliant jacket for rainy weather. And what’s best about it? You can wear it throughout the year.

This jacket is Keb, by Fjällräven, the Swedish brand whose products seem almost infallible. Time to take a good look at this jacket and you will see for yourself why we were so impressed by it.

Jackets Wax: What Is It, How To and 5 Products Reviewed

Jackets Wax: What Is It, How To and 5 Products Reviewed

A while ago, there was a fast-growing internet trend on waterproofing clothes and shoes. It consisted of using a typical house candle, that you would rub all over the fabric and then heat it up with a hairdryer. After it had set, then the job was done. This technique works beautifully with canvas and leather clothes, as well as shoes.

While it might sound as bogus and just a childish idea, there is some good basis for this trend. It is based on the professional waxing done to clothes, bags and shoes, which gives them a high water resistance and in some cases, even makes them completely waterproof.

That is what we will be looking into today: wax for clothes, specifically jackets. You will learn what kind of wax is used, a short journey through the history of it and of course, how to wax your own jackets at home.
