Noxgear Tracer 360: Visibility for Runners and Walkers

For my birthday, Tom, John, and Jackie got me a Noxgear Tracer 360.  Have no idea what that is?  I didn’t either, but now that I have one, I love it.

The Noxgear Tracer 360 is a lighted harness for runners and walkers.  Because I am walking every morning, my loving family thought I needed something to make me more visible.  Especially as I cross the very busy US 3.  With the time change, it isn’t dark when I walk so I wasn’t sure I needed it.  But I don’t want my family to worry about my safety and anything that increases my visibility to others is a good thing.

The Noxgear Tracer 360 is a series of thin plastic tubes attached to a shield and harness.  The shield contains the batteries and has the power button.  The elastic harness helps you adjust the fit so it isn’t falling off your shoulders.  There are six solid color choices and five flashing, multi-colored options.  So one day I can be pink, the next yellow, and the next blue.  I wanted to be multicolored flashing, but John said it was too annoying.  The harness is so lightweight I don’t notice wearing it at all.

John and Jackie helped me fit it the first time, before we all went for a walk with the dogs.  They each have one.  Each of us was a different color and I asked a family who was walking if they could see us.  “Yes!” they all responded enthusiastically.  If we only used the red and green colors, we would look like walking Christmas decorations.  But we all used a different color to be more visible.  I wore it again on a morning that was dark because it was snowing.  I’m sure it makes me more visible as I cross the street.

This would be a great Christmas gift for someone who likes to walk, run or cycle early in the morning or after it gets dark in the afternoon.  Because the harness is adjustable, it can be worn over running gear or a winter coat.  You can also get different sizes.  Other products sold by this company include a lighted harness for dogs.  The Noxgear Tracer 360 is available from Noxgear or from Amazon.
