My son recently started taking up running as a school sport, and that also includes the occasional team run in the Presidio in San Francisco. Some portions are shared by cars, so I started looking around at reflectors. Here are some by Portland Reflector, from- wait for it- Portland, OR.

I was sent two different kinds of reflectors: The Afterglow and Twilight.

The Afterglow is a two-part reflector held together by powerful magnets:

  • Uses Reflexite® retroreflective material
  • Size WxH: 157mm x 140mm (6.2″ x 5.5″)
  • Total weight: 49 grams (1.7 ounces)
  • Made in the USA

Each package comes with a silver triangle and your choice of a second color: silver, yellow, orange, pink or blue.

Here’s the magnetic Afterglow attached to my son (age 11).  The LED flash on my iPhone was used for this, and it’s already wicked reflective.

The Twilight strap reflector is a slightly smaller triangle with cutouts for your straps. Like it’s big brother, the Twilight also comes in silver, yellow, orange, pink or blue.  You get one per package.

  • Uses Reflexite® retroreflective material
  • Strap opening size: 35mm x 13mm (1.4″ x 0.5″)
  • Product size WxH: 125mm x 112mm (4.9″ x 4.4″)
  • Weight: 6 grams (0.2 ounces)
  • Made in the USA

I discovered the Twilight fit a strap/buckle on my daypack perfectly.

Family portrait!

It seems like such a simple thing, but I found these reflectors from Portland Reflector to be clever and well-made. If you like things that are still made in the US, look no further.
