Today was especially exciting because I had a new running toy to try... Knuckle Lights! I typically run with a headlight, reflective belt and a bunch of flashers all around me for these early runs. Knuckle Lights are so much simpler! Just slip them over your hand, press the button and you're ready to go.
The Knuckle Lights were quite comfortable on my hand. I didn't have to hang on to them. The adjustable rubber strap kept them secured to my hand. Along my run, I completely forgot they were even there... well except for the giant light that was in front of me! The light given off by Knuckle Lights was far superior to any headlamp I've ever seen. The wide flood beams easily lit up a car lane. Honestly, it was the most comfortable I've ever felt running in the pure darkness of my rural neighborhoods. In fact, I think I could get by with using just one next time. Powered by two AAA batteries, each Knuckle Light gives off 45 lumens.
I went with the yellow Knuckle Lights, but they are also available in black, silver, pink or blue.
On top of achieving their basic task of lighting up my run path, they also had a psychological effect too. I gotta admit, I felt like a dork the first time I strapped a headlamp around my forehead... and I still do. But Knuckle Lights have a 'bad-ass' kinda feel to them... like you're gonna punch someone. I like that.
Of course, you can also be a bit goofy with them too...
MY TAKE: Knuckle Lights are a keeper!!
