RunLites Great Gift for Everyone

We have a family dog, which mean walks. My husband loves to take House (the dog) for walks at night on the walking trail. The problem is, the trail isn’t really lit all that well. I was recently sent RunLites gloves. Let me tell you, the gloves are awesome, but the lights are the part that steal the show.

The gloves themselves are very simple half finger type. They are made from 90% polyester and 10% spandex. I received a size large. From the looks of them I wasn’t sure they would fit me, but they did and they are very comfortable. The best part is, they fit both my husband and my 13 year old daughter as well (score, one fits all of us). On the top of the glove is a little pouch with Velcro where you can put the light. Very simple design, but very effective.

Let’s talk about the lights. They are sold separately from the gloves, but that’s ok. 2 come in a pack of course. They are small which I like, and not bulky. Not only LED but have 2 settings: high (80 lumens) and a low (40 lumens). With just a press of a button, you can switch between the two.

The lights are rechargeable via a slit micro USB cord (you can charge both with one cord). On one charge you get 48 hours of battery life! So you really don’t need to charge them every few days, unless you where them for a long time every day. 48 hours!!!! I love this.
The thing I was really worried about is how far the light projects. The official answer to that is 15 feet ahead, and has 135 degrees radial arc of light. Both my daughter and my husband said there was plenty of light to see ahead of them when they were on the walking trail.

Right now RunLites has a few designs to choose from:

Runners, Cyclists, Athletes- Visibility is a big concern for athletes looking to extend activities into the evening hours. See and be seen with RunLites.

Outdoorsmen & Survivalists- Where minimalism is key and the use of your hands is valuable, RunLites are a simple solution to put light right where you need it.

Everyday Use- When we’re working in areas of low light, flashlights and work lights just don’t cut it. RunLites are a hands-free, convenient solution.

If you are under those categories or you have friends that are, I recommend you check these RunLites out, as they make a great gift for yourself or others.
