If you’ve ever gone for a run down the road at dusk, you know how sketchy the activity can be. Passing motorists have a hard enough time paying attention in ideal light, so adding lower light to the equation makes being seen all the more important. Thankfully, we have the folks at Vollebak working on superb gear like their Nano Meter 555 Midlayer – which might be the most advanced high-visibility shirt ever made.

Made with ultra-soft, lightweight, and breathable brushed fleece from Schoeller, this heat-retaining sweat-wicking shirt offers superb comfort and a bit of a stretch to accomodate just about any exercise – especially when it’s a bit chilly out. But the coolest thing about the Nano Meter 555 is twofold. First, the green of this shirt is the most visible color in the world. In fact, just one pixel of this color amongst 100,000 gray ones can be instantly discerned. Secondly (as if that wasn’t enough), this shirt features 20 motion capture-style reflective dots made from microscopic glass beads embedded in the fabric which, through experimental psychology, make you instantly recognizable by any other humans in less than 0.25 seconds. Get one yourself for $195.

Purchase: $195
