Great head torch,good price,bright.
Yes, it's very bright and lasts for ages... BUT, it shines in your face when you are wearing it! You can see this on the product photos where the models face is lit up. When running at night your own face becomes the brightest thing in your field of vision, ruining your sight. Wearing with a peaked cap fixes this problem. Would have been 5* review without this.
Thanks for your feedback on this Running Light. I will pass all those details into the Product Engineer and Product Manager to keep improving and developing the best and most suitable running light for our Running Users.

Got this to walk dogs at night. This torch is outstanding. Even on the lowest setting there is more than adequate light. Knocks spots off rivals I looked at. Battery seems to last for ages too. I've had it a month now & so much better than my last torch.
A versatile product, can be used for Night Running, while riding a bicycle & also during black-outs!
Bought this for walking down pitch dark tracks with the dogs, so I didn't need the lamping lamp on all the time.
The brightness impressed me in the shop, shocked me out on the trail! On the highest setting, this lamp is amazing! I can see the dogs clearly, many yards in front of me.
I only tend to use the lowest setting, sufficient for safely walking in total darkness.
But if needed, the medium and high settings are superb! A good spread of light with a great range.
I don't jog so the flashing feature is of no use to me, but it is a separate programme to the steady light so not a problem.
Recharges quick and lasts ages on a full charge.
The battery level indicator is also a nice touch for peace of mind.
The on off switch is also worth a mention. It is a rotary switch, first click = low light. Second = medium and third = high. From the off position, one up is flashing. The knob is easy to find and operate even with gloves.
Dunno if it would suit runners but I find it so useful, it never feels like its off my head!
hi brought before i headed to Uttarakand trek used it on Gomuck trek in the Himalayas because we got late the performance was good i use it while i work on my car, bike, or any thing i might be buying one more for my friend.
Recently I went for my darkest run yet. This place has no streetlights at all and even had a tree tunnel. There was slippery leaves underfoot... you get the picture, why would a runner go there? To test this product out and it did not dissapoint. The brightness has to be seen to be believed. It’s very bright. The three settings are easy to adjust and very useful and the unit is incredibly comfortable. It’s a cracking product.
Cracking light good spread, only issue is its close to the head which reflects off my glasses more than my old head torch but it was three time the price
I bought this to complete my first night trail race. It worked well out of the box when it arrived. Unfortunately, 2 weeks later when I recharge it fully in preparation for the race (the battery indicated half full at the time) the battery 'full' light wouldn't switch off. Then, when I switched the beam on, it lasted for 3mins before switching off. The batter light is still on though. Missed my race and lost my entry fee. Very frustrating! It will be sent back asap.
Couple of weeks ago I went out for a early morning run and took a nasty tumble in the dark.
So I decided to look at getting a light weight head touch for running.
This was the 4th or 5th I tried as the others were either too heavy or the light was very strong.
This one was excellent, light (well I think so) weight, powerful beam (in fact has 3 strengths of light) as well as a flashing mode.
I've used this whilst running on roads, pavements and trails at night and does the trick.
Well worth spending the extra money and avoid falling flat on your face.
