NewsProduct NewsLow Cost, No Excuse Roller Ski Reflective Vests

Avatar Topher SabotJuly 16, 20094

In the wake of the tragic death of Willie Neal earlier this summer, there has been quite a bit of discussion of roller ski safety.  Long-time New England Nordic Ski Association (NENSA) board member and LL Bean CMO Steve Fuller spearheaded a project to bring a low-cost, highly functional reflective vest to market.  The purpose of this vest is to provide a “no-excuses” option for high visibility training clothing.  Even cheap reflective vests usually cost around $25, and many are too hot, fit poorly, or fall apart quickly.  With feedback from other NENSA board members and various coaches, in just a matter of weeks, Steve was able to get a new product on the market.

The Brooks® NightLife™ Mesh Vest, available from LL Bean comes in two different sizes and features a combination of reflective and high-visibility materials.  And best of all, this vest is sold at-cost for only $10.  LL Bean does not profit from the sale of this item, and you will be hard-pressed to find a cheaper option – especially one of this quality.   The excuses have been eliminated.

Wearing a reflective vest is just one aspect of safe roller skiing.  Always wear a helmet, be familiar with the terrain, and ff you ski at dusk or later, be sure to have a flasher.
