You Saw Me Vest Review + Giveaway

Every year, as the days get shorter - day light running opportunities are reduced.  While I'm not a fan of night time running - I will do it.  But I want to be super safe when I do go.  Hey - did you know that November is National Running Safety Month?  





I want cars to see me when I'm out there - cranking out the miles.    I have a hot new item that is amazingly comfortable and packs a punch with visibility for runners in the wee early morning hours or after dark runs - either way - YOU WILL BE SEEN with the You Saw Me vest.  



There is no doubt about that!  The You Saw Me vest comes with a yellow mesh pocket system - there is a double pocket in the front and a pocket in the rear (think center of your back).  The double pocket in the front has two uses - the outer most pocket is large enough for fuel, your phone, mace - you name it.  And it's easily accessible.  The inner most pocket holds the 9-volt battery used to power the best visibility vest on the market.  Below the pockets, there is a small control device which allows you to select the color of your choice and the flashing speed (or non flashing option as well).  




I seriously had far too much fun playing with the color options and flash options - I finished my run before I knew it.  



Pros:
- this vest has 60 custom color, waterproof LED's
- 360 degree visibility 
- 20 dimmable color options and 18 flashing and automatic color cycling modes
- visible a mile away
- one size fits all 
- front and back pockets to carry phone, fuel, keys, mace
- washable (remove belt and battery prior to washing) - wash on delicate and hang to dry
- easy to store
- great for runners, walkers, cyclists, anyone 
- outerlayer is breathable and has a reflective film to reflect oncoming lights 
- retail price is $60 (so worth it for safety)
- See How It Works!


Cons:
Ummmm....none.  Well - I would love for it to have an air horn or something to scare away whatever animals are lurking in my woods.  But, that might be a bit too much.  Right?  


And lucky you - I have a You Saw Me Giveaway!  Perfect timing, right?  

It's super simple to enter - just follow the steps through the rafflecopter below.  The giveaway will run from today through 11/28/14.  I will email the winner - so please be sure that you provide me with a valid email (and be sure to respond to my winner email within 24 hours - or a new winner will be chosen!).    Also - if you just want to cut to the chase... runningwiththegirls9 will get you FREE SHIPPING!

  18. My Dog Greta is a big fluffy Bernese Mountain Dog!! She isn't much for running but she loves to hike with me, this would be great especially over areas where I need my hands for balance and she's bounding up the trail ahead of me!
