Knuckle Lights Review & Giveaway

My Knuckle Lights (HERE) came in handy at the end of winter, here.  Winter seemed to be dragging on and on ... and on.  Our evenings were cut short by dark nights.  But, now with the time change, the mornings are dark again, making it difficult for early morning runners.  I'm always look for new ways to be safe out on my solor runs and out with my couch to 5k groups.  I've tried various blinky lights - but they are cheaply made, don't always work and usual bust within a few sessions.
 
Knuckle Lights is the first and only light designed specifically to be worn on your hands, in the perfect position to light the path in front of you and be seen on your next run or walk in the dark.
 
 
I received a pair of Blue Knuckle Lights (HERE).  They retail for $39.99.  These also come in black, pink, yellow and silver.  Unfortunately, the pretty pink ones were out of stock - bummer.
 
45 lumens each light
Extra wide flood beams
Blinking, Lower and High Beam options
Adjustable Silicone Strap
Weatherproof
Batteries INCLUDED
 
 
These light your path and also allow you to be seen at the same time.  Perfect for busy roads when you are running against traffic.  Or if you are out running on dark, unlit trails.
 
I totally didn't mind using these on my hands, because I always carry a handheld water bottle with me and love having something in my hands.  They are light and easy and comfortable to hold.  If you are a handheld water bottle user - you can place your bottle in one hand and a Knuckle Light in the other.  These are also perfect when sharing with a running buddy out on a run.  You both can be seen.

 
I played around with the strap too much mid-run, so one of them came unfastened and I was unable to fix it without stopping. So, I just held it in my hand.  I should have tested it out more before that first run to know how the adjustable strap worked.  But, the adjustable strap was super easy to use the next time.  The cushion on the insight of the Knuckle Light provides even more comfort for your hands.

 
I would recommend Knuckle Lights to anyone that is doing runs in the dark.  They seem to be the most powerful option out there.  My kids found them fun, too.

 
The power button on top was super easy to maneuver with my thumb.  I had fun playing around with the three different settings.
 
 

 
Free priority shipping in the US and a 5 year guarantee.  Can't beat that!
