Rated 5 out of 5 by peter3jl Every runner needs these
Whoever invented these is a genius. If you run, you probably have to run in the dark ones the time change hits - and you need these.
I can run on the grass in the dark again with great lighting. Also feel a lot safer with the blinking setting while running on lit streets facing oncoming traffic.
No more sore foreheads from headlamps, no more dropping your handheld. I'm gonna go ahead and say every runner needs these.

Rated 4 out of 5 by GatorGirl1022 Makes me feel safe
This product does an excellent job of lighting up the sidewalk in front of me. I usually use the "low" setting, since I run in an area with streetlights. I think it also allows oncoming cars to see me when I'm crossing a driveway (although I can't know what it looks like for sure). The beam is wide, so there is minimal "swinging" effect of the beam in front of me, and minimal distraction.
It took a little getting used to, having it on my hands, but it's not that bad. My hands just get a little sweaty under the strap. I am able to hold it while still holding my iPhone. The excess straps flap around a bit, but if you tuck it under itself, it will stay put.
I dropped one on the ground, and the batteries popped out, but no other damage.
This is a good solution to running in the dark.

I run early in the morning and these work great. I can see very clearly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CentralParkRunners Perfect for evening trail running
My girlfriend and I regularly run the bridle path in Central Park. However, there are quite a large number of loose stones, which can make running at dark dangerous. We've been using the knuckle lights for a handful of evening runs now and really love them! In fact, one light is bright enough to use for both of us. I would definitely recommend this product for trail runners who want to run safely in the early morning or later at night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RN So helpful!
Able to see where I'm going when running in the night or early morning. Good amount of light. The straps keep it secured to my hands tightly. Feel safer by allowing me to be more visible to cars

Rated 5 out of 5 by chipwell So much better than a headlamp!
I was very excited to see Knuckle Lights at Dicks Sporting Goods at the Washington Square store. I had several friends that had these and loved them and I started training for a half marathon at 4am last month and needed a new light. I have used headlamps in the past and did not like them--they were uncomfortable and did not give off enough light. The Knuckle Lights are easy to just grab and go, and the light they emit is perfect for lighting up the road in front of me. They are closer to the ground than my headlamp and gives off a flood of light in front of me--and with two it keeps a nice steady amount of light even with my arms moving back and forth.
