[tps_header]Shorter days mean dawn and dusk runners may find themselves in the dark on daily runs. Thankfully there are quite a few lights out there to fit your needs.
Headlamps give hands-free light exactly where you look, sometimes this is good, and others not so good. If you run with a pack, a pack-mounted design provides plenty of light on its own or can be used in addition to a headlamp for extra light or as a backup. If handhelds are more your thing, there are easy to carry designs that make flashlights a think of the past.
For maximum safety, make sure you can be seen from behind also. Incorporating high visibility colors, reflective accents and flashing lights (that can be seen from behind) into your night run are smart ways to stay safe.
Zephyr Fire 100 Hand Torch LED Light
Nathan has applied their handheld hydration carrier know-how to a light, with an adjustable strap and barely-there carrying comfort that works for righties and lefties. A 24-degree downward light projection angle means you can light your path without getting a kink in your wrist. The USB-rechargeable torch puts out a maximum of 108 lumens with a five hour run time. Setting it to low buys you up to eight hours of run time, and it even comes with a rear-facing red LED safety light and an emergency siren. $45.00 | nathansports.com
