First of all I happen to love all things Nathan. I am a Nathan Junkie lol!!
This said I was naturally super excited to get the chance to test out the Nathan's Luna Fire 250 RX Run Chest/Waist Light!
As you know I run typically very early in the mornings before the sun is up! It is always dark and so finding the best ways to light my path is important to me!
The first run I did using the Luna Fire I used the waist strap that was included in the package. it worked out well for me. The strap is light and adjustable so it fit nicely and the light just hooks right on!
The light provided was ample. I was very happy with how well this worked for me! It is a 250 Lumen LED spotlight and you can easily adjust the beam angle up and down however you like it!
The next run I used my light for was my long run. I am training now for the Backyard to Vineyard Challenge at the Asheville Marathon and so my long runs are already ramping up on Saturdays and Sundays. Because we are in the midst also of home reno I am needing to go even earlier so that I am home sooner to work!
The greatest thing ever about this light is that it clips on to almost anything and clipped on perfectly to my Nathan Hydration Pack for my long run. Once the sun came up I was able to easily turn my light off and stash it right in my front pocket of my vest. I absolutely love this!! Most other light devices are too large to do this!
The other great thing about this light it that it's RECHARGEABLE!! Woot Woot! I just plug it in once a week, the night before my long run, and viola the next morning I am ready to go! I have no idea how long it holds, I have not had any issues with it loosing charge to know for sure.
I have read that some people have complained about the light bouncing when they run... Seriously??? If you bounce when you run (and I bet you do) so will anything else that is attached to your body or that you hold for that matter. If you run when it's dark then you know, as I do, that what ever light you carry will bounce a bit. You light will match your stride! Maybe you just need to try not to bounce so much when you run lol! I did not have any issues with the way the light worked for me at all!!
Having light for your runs, or even your walks, is super important. Not only does it make your ability to see better but it also makes it so that other travelers (especially cars) are able to see you!
I love this little light of mine and I highly recommend it!! Check it out for yourself! Use code NATHANBIB20 which is good sitewide at nathansports.com for a one-time purchase of up to $250
