Safety should be the number one priority of runners, especially when it is dark a lot longer now that winter is almost here.
I always run early mornings so it is important for me to see and be seen on those runs. I normally wear a reflective vest, reflective clothing and a light up wrist bracelet but I wasn’t feeling as safe as I knew I could/should, so when I was given the chance to try out the new Nathan Luna Fire 250 RX chest/waist light I opted in and I am glad I did! The light on this is seriously bright! There is no way that I won’t be seen now!
It is rechargeable via USB so you never have to worry about not having a battery. It comes with the chest/waist strap as well the USB cord. There is a side button to change settings and at first I couldn’t get it to turn on but I found that using my fingernail or the very tip of my finger worked well. If you double-click it then you will get the strobe feature. There are five different brightness settings including a strobe setting. The light is removable and can clip on anywhere you choose to clip it, like your jacket, shorts shirt, or hydration vest. The strap is very comfortable and I hardly noticed it was there, but I did notice a bit of bouncing while running. The bounce does not really bother me if I’m in a fairly well-lit area. But, if I am on a super dark street it can be a bit bothersome that the light bounces around because it then seems more like it is on the strobe setting if that makes sense. The strap is adjustable but I had a hard time getting it tight enough so it wouldn’t bounce as much. You can also tilt the light down to light your path even better.
