RUSEEN Reflective Apparel's retro-reflective technology returns light directly back to its source, keeping all who exercise safer in low-light conditions. Our competitors use reflective ink which produces 30 to 50 lumens of light and it washes out eventually. Our reflective material produces around 300 lumens, that's almost 10x the amount of anyone else and ours will never wash out so it will always be as bright as the day you bought it. It's essentially like looking into a mirror.

Cornell University Cooperative Extension Program has published a report on "Action Wear: Clothing for Fitness". The report states that pedestrians walking along a road in dark clothing at night are first seen approximately 55 feet away, giving a driver less than one second reaction time. A driver traveling at 60 mph needs over 260 feet to stop. They list the following colors and visibility distances: BLACK/BLUE - 55 feet; RED - 80 feet; YELLOW -120 feet; WHITE - 180 feet; REFLECTORIZED - 500 feet OR MORE.
