Has anyone got any recommendations?

I get really hot running so only need a lightweight jacket but all the ones I'm finding online aren't fluorescent enough to be safe running in the dark.

Or any other ideas on how to remain visible in the dark?

Bought a brilliant one in of all places Primark. Has pockets and is breathable. It's from the men's range and is great. DH loves it too

My best ever running jacket is actually a cycling jacket from
Aldi. I am a huge gear snob, but this is great.

Try sports direct and the karrimor stuff. Our local store has two different weights of jackets at the moment, but karrimor have new winter stuff due out later this month on their own website.

Another option is just a very lightweight safety vest to go over any existing jacket. I have one that I use when cycling over a heavier jacket than I would use for running.

I also have a lightweight running jacket from Howies, which I really like. They don't do it anymore, but it's very similar to this from Alpkit. No super reflective, but I find the light colour is easily picked up by headlights anyway.

How about the reflective jackets from Mountain Warehouse - they have the ones that look grey, but are amazingly reflective when they are hit by light from a torch/car headlight etc?

I got a good one from Decathlon a couple of years ago. Bright with reflective piping. Light but shower/ windproof. Good air vents.

Thanks, some great ideas to look at over the weekend. Really missing my evening runs
