Reflective gear to sport from head to toe outdoors

Besides providing some tunes, these high-tech headphones are great for outdoor training for two reasons: The reflective finish helps you be seen at night, and the audio helps you hear your music as well as your surroundings. They’ll also stand up to rain (and sweat). The wireless headset connects to your phone — which can be secured in an accompanying armband. $129.99; Plantronics.com
