Light Belt Med/Med High/High vs. Headlamp at High
“I have completely given up on my headlamp and only use your light. The light is perfect for the rain. I can still wear a hat or whatever I want on my head and I do not have to worry about seeing all of the rain drops. The light charges easily and I love the brightness.”Dr. Laurie, pre-dawn training marathon runner
“I LOVE LOVE LOVE the light. Honestly, where has this product been my whole life - wish I were kidding or exaggerating.”Gina
"I'm amazed at how good this light is. I've never found something that really lights up the road in front of me - until now. I highly recommend it. And the fact that it is rechargeable is such a plus."Jen
“Light belt worked a treat! Thank You!”Gail, 2017 Run Loco 50K winner, 2017 200K Ragnar Relay Tahoe
Thanks for checking us out!
We love night trail running and we believe that LIGHT-BELT a great running light.
LIGHT-BELT was developed with feedback from ultra marathon runners and product testing in the Marin headlands.
The problems with headlights: Headlights project a very narrow beam and/or have a center hot spot that creates a distracting bouncing light spot for most runners. When headlights are used in rainy, foggy, or dusty conditions, light from the headlamp illuminates these particles and reflect back into eyes. Eye level lights tend to blind other people. Headbands become a sweaty mess almost immediately. All of these problems have been solved by LIGHT-BELT.
LIGHT-BELT is ultra light weight, has super bright output with a wide beam for peripheral illumination. The reflective cone has a flat silver finish which diffuses light to eliminate bright spots. The oval stability pad prevents impact bouncing. Since the light is below eye level, no more dust, rain, or fog reflected light in your eyes or blinding of your running buddies. Much less sweat from your waist than your head. The 3400 MaH Panasonic battery is the highest capacity, longest lasting battery available, and easily replaceable.
Try it and SEE the difference. We are so confident that you will love this light that we offer a 60 day free return policy. If for any reason you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, you may return any LIGHT-BELT in its original condition within 60 days of receipt and we will gladly provide a refund.
The Light-Belt difference
Brighter is Better
A big benefit of a hyper bright light is that you can safely run through technical trails faster. More light = better trail visibility = better safety and more running confidence. If you can clearly see the trail, you can pick the safest lines and have more confidence to run faster.
For competitive runners safety and speed are critical for success. The lower light position enhances the visibility of trail surfaces (pavement, dirt, mud, puddles, snow, ice, scree, gravel, road hazards, and uneven pavement and obstacles such as: tree stumps, trenches, poo, etc. Even though the days are getting shorter, you can train longer, run faster with more confidence with a LIGHT-BELT.
LIGHT-BELTs uses Cree XM-L2 LEDs. Cree is the world leader in LEDs and the XM-L2 LED is the highest-performing, commercially-available, single-die LED.
Battery and Integrated Charger
We tested a lot of different batteries and the best that we have found is the Panasonic NCR18650B 3.6V 3400 mAh. This battery has protection circuitry which prevents damage from over charging or over draining. Panasonic 18650s are used in laptops and were used in Teslas before they went to larger cells. Because the Light-Belt battery is completely contained and the housing has an integrated micro-USB port, there is no need to ever remove the battery. However, the battery can be easily replaced if necessary. If you find a better battery please let us know!
Panasonic NCR18650B Technical Specifications
Some people think that our buckle is the coolest Light-Belt component. In order to make the world's best action light every component must be the best. In our opinion, Fidlock buckles are by far the most innovative and the best buckles made. Fidlock buckles take the best features of mechanical locks and combine them with magnetic force, to revolution fasteners. Simply place the buckle ends close to each other and the magnet securely couples the buckle so you don't have to struggle when time is critical. The Fidlock buckle has a rated static breaking load of 40 kg / 88 lbs.
Why a belt?
Headlamps worked, but there are drawbacks;
1) blinding running partners with a simple head turn,
2) getting dizzy in when it rained due to the reflection from raindrops or fog,
3) “bouncing” light when running,
4) bugs flying in your face
5) after a while they began to feel "heavy" on the head.
We weren’t alone facing those issues. So, we tackled all these issues head-on. We designed the light to be worn on the waist for several reasons:
1) you don't feel the weight of the light on your waist;
2) you won’t blind your running partners,
3) you can see uneven terrain and small obstacles when light shines from a lower position - it creates more shadows.
Why is your belt so simple?
Feedback from our users was they wanted something simple …a minimalist light weight light-belt with a brighter light with a long battery life that is easily rechargeable - nothing more…but nothing less!
Our elastic belt fits a range of waist sizes without using any extra material. This minimizes weight while maintaining a secure and comfortable fit for long runs.
Light-Belt has been tested in training and during competition by discriminating trail runners and world ranked ultra-marathoners. Their approval let's us know that our products will be great if you’re a hiker, a XC skier, an outdoor adventurer, work in dark conditions, or just walking the dog. Plus, both hands are free because Light-Belt attaches around the waist.
