Hello again! Last you heard from me here, I was trying to analyze what went wrong for me in Rehoboth. This time I’ll be posting about something WAY more fun and that’s trying and reviewing new gear!

Yep. That’s me.

During my training over the last 4-5 months, I’ve done plenty of running in the dark. I’ve always been a headlamp kind of guy, mainly because I didn’t think to use anything else. Headlamps are fine, they really are. They aren’t the most comfortable things in the world, but they do the job.

Once I started using Knuckle Lights, I really liked them better than my headlamps. Here’s why:

  • They are more comfortable than having something unwanted on my head.
  • Two lights are better than one.
  • It’s nice to be able to shine light in two directions at the same time.
  • For some odd reason, my kids think they are super fun.
  • I think they have better visibility or are more noticeable to others.
  • The light manages to stay smooth and stable, even though your arms and hands move.
  • They stick together with magnets and stay easy to find.

And the #1 reason I like Knuckle Lights better than headlamps IS….

  • You’re WAY less likely to accidentally blind all of your friends by looking at them!

Who hasn’t done this?

There are a few things I’ll note, just because I thought of them:

  • Knuckle Lights have two different light settings plus a “blinking” setting, but no “red” setting. Many headlamps have it, although I’ve never found a use for it.
  • Had to get used to turning my Knuckle Light away to not blind myself when checking my paces on my watch. Easy fix.
  • Wouldn’t want to carry a handheld water AND a Knuckle Light with the same hand.

My conclusion is that Knuckle Lights are a great alternative to headlamps and other light sources when you need to run in the dark. They are lightweight, comfortable and convenient. I’ll be using them all winter long.

  1. I’ve been considering a headlamp for awhile now, although I’m not sure I’d like it either. How do these stay on your hands? Is it a stretchy elastic band like my hand held mace I sometimes carry? I’ve found I don’t mind the mace too much, but handheld water bottle drove me nuts.

  2. I have an older set I got from MsRitz a couple of years ago and like them, too. They aren’t magnetic, but have the same lighting options. Instead of wearing them on my hands, though, I usually loop them through my SPIbelt – one in front and one in back. Then I turn the back one to “strobe” for rear safety.
