You know sitting in front of the computer or TV all day is bad for you, which is why you make sure to run, walk, or jog every day. Right? Of course, nothing eases the monotony of running when nothing is chasing you like listening to your favorite tunes. Unfortunately, you take your life in your hands every time you shut out the world with earbuds or headphones.
While it would be super-nice if the rest of the world took a break while you did your laps, the reality is that people still go about their regular tasks, usually with their faces buried in their smartphones. The Runner’s Speaker Vest lets you stay alert as you listen to
the Rocky theme song Chariots of Fire your favorite music because the speakers are on your shoulders instead of in your ears.
Just slide your phone/music player/singing frog in the front pocket, plug the vest’s speaker cord into your device’s headphone jack [skip this step if you have a singing frog], and you’re ready to go.
The vest itself is made of durable lightweight nylon mesh, and the speakers are easily removed to allow for hand-washing, because after running a mile or two… well, let’s just say a little refreshing probably won’t be a bad thing. There’s even reflective fluorescent strips on the front and back to let pedestrians, cyclists, and drivers know you’re there.
You can run off with the Runner’s Speaker Vest for $69.95.
