In today’s article we will be taking a look at a variety of jackets for men and women. But, unlike in the previews reviews, we have selected them based on a different criteria. It is finally time for reflective jackets.
While some have been previously featured, we have also a lot of first-timers. They all vary when it comes to weather resistance, material and performance. These jackets are best suited for running, but they can be also used for cycling and many other sports.
We are starting with men’s jackets.

Men’s Reflective Running Jackets
Mountain Warehouse Adrenaline Iso-Viz Jacket
Mountain Warehouse is a recurring brand in our reviews and this time we have picked Adrenaline. This is a 100% Polyester jacket, with waterproof and windproof outer lining, due to the IsoDry membrane. The inner lining is also 100% Polyester mesh lining, which is highly breathable.
All seams are taped, which further seals the jacket from the elements. It comes without a hood and has a high stand-up collar, with chin-guard in front. The main zipper is also water-resistant and the cuffs are adjustable with Velcro fasteners.
While weatherproof, the outer lining is neon yellow, highly visible and reflective. This is a jacket suitable for cyclists, runners and warm-weather hikers.
There are zippers on the sides for added ventilation and it comes with one chest pocket to the front and one on the back. Speaking of which, the back hem is longer than the front, in order to provide better coverage while cycling.

Time To Run Zephyr Windproof Running Jacket
For you outdoor lovers, this next jacket by Time To Run is designed for a variety of outdoor activities. It is a high-performance windproof jacket, with a water-resistant outer fabric.
It is suitable for light rain and overall dry weather. The reason for it not being fully waterproof is to maintain a high respiratory level. This is a great sports jacket because of this. There are two hand warmer pockets on the sides and one MP3 player pocket near the collar.
The main zipper is water-resistant, as well as helped with a back placket. The cuffs are elastic and it comes without a hood, with only a short stand-up collar with chin guard.
As for reflection, for those who are night runners and cyclers, the Neon Yellow color is best suited. However, there are several reflective trims all over the jackets and some reflective dots on the back and sleeves. The other two color options are: Navy blue and Black.
BTR High Visibility Reflective Jacket
Next we have BTR‘s high visibility reflective jacket. This is a 100% Polyester jacket, mildly weather-resistant but highly breathable, due to the mesh lining on the inside. While it is suitable for a variety of outdoor sports, its main purpose is to make you visible in low lights. So you can wear it in the warmer months as a jacket for reflection.
The material itself is bright yellow, which is reflective on its own. But, despite that, to push visibility to the next level, there are reflective panels on the chest, shoulders, sleeves and back. For practicality, there are three outer pockets with enough room for small belongings. It comes with elastic cuffs and elastic hem.
Trespass Windbloc Reflective Running / Cycling Jacket
Trespass’ Windbloc is a cycling / running jacket. It is mildly resistant to wet conditions, so it is best used in dry and warm weather. The collar is high and stand-up, but there is no hood on this jacket. The cuffs and bottom hem are both elastic for better fitting, as well as for providing some insulation.
It is a windproof jacket with high breathability. The back on the inside is lined with mesh fabric for increased breathability. It has three zip pockets on the outside and comes in the color Yellow, treated to be highly reflective and visible.
