Running Headlamps: 5 Top Picks to Light Your Run
When you’re running the dark, there’s nothing that will become your best friend faster than a headlamp. Forget fame for a second. From a safety standpoint, it’s important to see and be seen. Using a headlamp can go a long way in alerting you to hazards on the road, as well as informing others that you’re coming. If one of your running goals is to not end up face down in a pothole, read on to find out my top choices for the best running headlamps.
This is the headlamp I currently use and I'm pleased with the quality for the price. I find that I can run for about 10-12 hours before the 3 AAA batteries need to be replaced. What I especially like about this headlamp is that the white light and red light controls are separate, making it faster to choose the setting you want. This headlamp is waterproof, puts out bright light, and a great economical option.

While I love the LED Headlamp listed above, having a headlamp that doesn't require batteries is great when you're running long distances and don't want to go throw a mountain of batteries. On it's lowest setting, this headlamp can last 100 hours on a single charge and 8 hours at it's highest. Given the low price, this headlamp has a lot of desirable qualities.
This headlamp is the best of the best as far as running is concerned. Rechargeable, waterproof, lightweight, and comfortable; what more could you ask for? While the Sprinter is a pricier option, it's worth your money if you're a runner who's often running in the dark.
