I love my New Balance running hat that has high and low beam LED lights in the bill. The low beam aims the light right where I need it to ensure I don't trip, and the high beam would be good if you need to see the direction you're going (e.g. out in a field rather than on a sidewalk). I just got back from 2 miles on a very dark street with it!
Voluntary Discomfort is the secret cornerstone of strength. We build our whole lives around increasing comfort and avoiding discomfort, and yet by doing so we are drinking a can of Weakness Tonic with every morning’s breakfast. ~Mr. Money Mustache 5K PR: 23:40 10K PR: 48:57 HM PR: 1:59:37 30K: 2:57:44
I use a PETZL Tikkana. I need to use it on the bright option because like you, I like to see as much as possible. It has two options, economy or bright. I also purchased the PETZL CORE rechargeable battery, and it works brilliantly! No need for disposable batteries. I also use a blinky light on my back, which I think is also important.
I have worn a Petzl, but the reality is for me the light is too far to pick up any big road variations and it can be cumbersome...at one of the relays I did, runners were using knucklelights on both hands which worked awesome. Just another idea...
This is the first time I'll be running outside in the late fall/winter, which means I'll be running in the dark. Part of my route has streetlights, part does not. But even the street lit areas are not always bright enough for me.
So obviously I need to have my own light source.
I like it really bright so I can see everything; I'm accident prone and want to minimize the opportunities to trip over or into something.
ETA: I have no idea why SP keeps putting that space in recommendations in the Topic
