It's a big EDC market out there, and tons of awesome gear is released all the time. We made The Drop to help you discover the latest and greatest essentials worth a spot in your EDC.

Running is excellent exercise, but when the sun goes down, you know how scary it can be when a car comes speeding past you, oblivious to the world. A lot of gear made for runners relies on reflective material to indicate your presence in oncoming traffic. COAST does you one better with the LH150 Lighted Rope Vest.

As the name implies, the LH150 Lighted Rope Vest uses internal LED lights in a harness that wraps comfortably around your body like a backpack strap. The LH150 gives you a lighted, high-visibility safety indicator that makes you stand out big time on dark roads. For added convenience, you can swap colors from the entire RGB spectrum. And keeping this charged for your EDC is easy since it's USB-C rechargeable.

What we like: This lightweight LED safety harness lights up at night, ensuring drivers know you're on the side of the road when the sun goes down

What to watch out for: The LH150 is excellent if you frequently run and bike outdoors, but not likely to fit in your everyday carry if it's outside your daily routine.

Final verdict: While the COAST LH150 Lighted Rope Vest can't guarantee you won't get hit by a careless driver while you're running, it's a light personal safety measure worth carrying.
