Unfortunately I have not gotten outside as much as I would like to lately to test my new nite ize gear. First I had the flu for whatever seemed like forever. Then there has been lots of black ice, not worth taking the risk even during the daylight hours can be dangerous. And of course just the busy life of a marathonmom, her kids and ultrarunner husband. Niko joined the pre-swim team this year so he has practice every Wednesday and Thursday. Emir runs in the morning those days and I run while they are at practice and since ms Una is home with me, I stick to the TM (I'm not taking the double BOB out in the dark! I do have some sense ;-) ).
Despite all of this, I have had a couple opportunities to check out all the stuff nite ize sent me. I decided it would be easiest to just make a list of the various items with descriptions and pics since they generously sent A LOT of stuff :-)

The other thing I noticed immediately was how bright the high setting on the white light was, WOW! I have on occasion been on the trail when darkness hit and my current headlamp just didn't feel like quite enough. Not a problem with this headlamp. Both the white and red lights have five modes including high, medium, low, strobe and lockout. The battery life varies depending on mode however I was very pleased to read that medium lasts 26 hours as I will be attempting my first 100 miler this year and will need something with decent lighting that won't die in a few hours. I also like the option of being able to use the red light. Other features were that it's waterproof up to 1 meter and I also found that it was very comfortable to wear. I really didn't find anything that I didn't like about this headlamp.
