meet the run: reflection line



Our designers are making it safer for nighttime and early morning runners by creating reflective swift fabric this fall found in the Run: Reflection line!

Reflective swift fabric has all of the same great features as our cherished swift run fabric, but it has reflective yarns woven right into the material. This means that it will never wear off, and that you will have reflectivity for the life of the garment. Another cool feature of this fabric is that you will most often see it hidden in a plaid or a stripe pattern, and will only notice the reflective yarns when they light up. Without further ado, allow us to introduce you to the Run:Reflection Vest & Skirt.

The Run:Reflection Vest is a perfect option for running outdoors, hiking, and cycling, especially if outside light is not optimal. It is extremely light weight and ready for the changing elements with a DWR (Durable Water Resistant) finish that will keep you dry. The reflective swift panels are hidden as silver stripes in this version of the vest, so don't worry you won't light up in line at Whole Foods.

Why We Made This:

  • A technical running vest great for running, cycling or hiking.
  • Made of swift; light weight and breathable with two-way stretch.
  • Reflective swift panels have reflective yarns woven in for safety when running in low light.
  • DWR (Durable Water Resistant) finish keeps you dry.
  • Mesh back panel and low armholes for ventilation.
  • Secure zipper pockets.
  • Flat seamed for chafe resistance and comfort.

The Run:Reflection Skirt is an awesome skirt to run in! It is very comfortable, and the pleats move with you and not against your moving legs. The Coolmax liner is very light, will keep you from chafing and keeps you covered through your strides. The skirt is really perfect for any runner, particularly road runners who need to be seen by cars at night.

Hi Tom,
Not sure about a Run: Reflection line for men… yet. We’re trying out reflectivity with a few women’s items first. I’ll definitely let the design team know our male guests would be interested in a Run: Reflection line as well!

Hey- how does the sizing run on the reflective shorts?
I wear a 4 in Lulu except for a 6 in the Speed Short. Do you recommend I size up for the reflective short as well?

Comment by Alex — August 5, 2010 @ 2:22 pm


@Alex. Size up. Usually a 4…bought a size 6 in the skirt. Fabric is only 2 way stretch. Super cute!!

I think the reflection line is a great idea, but I can’t believe that the reflection shorts are $64. At that price point, I’ll stick with my regular lulu shorts, wear my clip-on light at night and a light-colored top for visibility.

Thanks Christine! :)

Are you guys coming out with more reflection tops? Different colors for the shorts? Thanks!

Hey Charity,
This is the first time we have used our reflective Swift fabric, so there is always a possiblity we will continue to make more reflective items in future. If you have any speicifc suggest let us know, we’d love to hear your ideas.

Some years ago I asked the store about reflective running garments. They didn’t have any. I run at night so it is important to have LS wicking fabric with reflective details on the sleeves and something along the back hem which ensures being seen regardless of which direction you are running near traffic. A jacket would be great also with the same reflective elements.
And. I agree, $64 for running shorts is very expensive…..

i bought the running skirt and i really love it. It’s very comfy and the lining short doesn’t ride up and stays put.

Don’t get me wrong I love lulu’s clothing it is the best workout clothing out there. But $64??? Seems like a marketing ploy and quite frankly there is no way it costs anywhere near $64 to make those shorts. Why so expensive? With that price tag I’ll be sticking with the regular shorts.
