I also have a Petzl Tikka headlamp. I don't remember the exact model but I believe I paid about $30 for it. Its great, different brightness settings, uses triple A batteries. The batteries last a long time and it's very lightweight. It does not have a strap over top.

www.runblogger.com had good things to say about the Black Diamond Sprinter Headlamp. It runs about $67 though.

Neither real food, nor exercise, come from a box.

Hey Bill,

Below is a link to the lamp company I like Petzl. I used it when I ran Hood to Coast and loved it.

I use two diffrent lights:

the hat light attaches to the bill of any baseball cap. Find in the camping section of walmart for $10 to $15

the other one is one that has a strap that fits on your head whether or not you have a hat on. I bought a wide strap one at my local running store (425-$40)but Walmart also carries them but with a slightly narrower strap ($10 to $20). I like the wider band because if doesn't move or slip when I sweat.

We run at night so we are required to wear it for my running group.

Lovey

I'm a cyclists as well, but don't see to many of those light crossing over; especially the super bright ones (huge battery pack).

I live in the country, so no street lamps.
Thanks though.

Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.

I suggest that you add this to the Cycling team forum as well.

I have a variety of inexpensive lights. Some are great for running and walking at night. Very bright and last a long time.

I haven't been riding my bike at night but there are some really super lights out there for those that do.
The inexpensive lights work great in town.

With the short days upon us I'm in need of some illumination.

I've seen various models, wattages, lumens, straps and other variations, but no where on the internet someone reviewing them.

So, I ask. Information, favorites or dislikes are all welcome. Should I look for one with a strap that goes OVER the top? Is this even necessary? Price is of leaders concern than seeing where I'm going, but please don't tell me about some $200 light; the wife will never see the justification in that. LOL
