If you exercise, run or bike when the sun is down, you know you need reflectivity – the brighter the better. In what may be the best solution to date, GoMotion has created a lightweight belt system, complete with multi-capable head light in front and blinking LED’s in the back. See and be seen – that’s my motto.
The belt is similar in scale to a fanny pack, but fits flat against your back so no uncomfortable bouncing around. There are two zippered pockets, great for keys, ID, credit cards, cash or a phone. A Samsung Galaxy S4 will just fit.
Around front is the genius of this thing. A 100 lumen LED light slides on the adjustable belt so you can position it straight ahead. It rotates up and down so you can set the most intense part of the beam near or further out front of you. It is also adjustable for flood or spot beam by simply sliding the lever. Press the power button and then select one of three power levels for just the right amount of light.
Beautifully built, the orange mesh is trimmed in reflective silver edging. Wear this and you’ll surely be seen as you rack up the miles.
This was one of the products we featured during the 2014 Outdoor Retailers Show earlier this year, and we wanted to double back and present those items that actually turned out to be as good as we thought they would be. Now that they’ve stood up during our road trips, we can recommend them unequivocally.
