A while ago we were contacted by the Illumiseen Company and asked if we would like to review their belt. After looking at their website, and being someone highly concerned about safety and visibility while running, I jumped at the chance. This belt has features very different to running gadgets I have for illumination while running in the dark. Normally, it is just my winter runs that are in the dark, but when it gets really warm here in the summer, I am usually out before the sun rises!
Made with LED technology, this belt lights up very brightly and also reflects light with the 3M Scotchlite reflective material. Providing full 360 degree coverage, runners can be seen by any vehicles well in advance. I love the wide strip and know that I will always be seen unless someone chooses to drive with their eyes shut. Most runners don't want any extra pounds when running, but this lightweight belt will be unnoticeable after a couple runs in it.
Excellent instructions and a Micro USB Cable are included inside the package. Once my belt was fully charged, I checked out how to adjust for fit. There is a large amount of adjustment, but if you look at the photo, this band is just barely small enough for me. Once I ran in it though, I realized it is just fine for size. However, if you are quite small, this might not adjust to the correct size for you. Should I wear this to ride my bike or walk the dog, I might be tempted to fasten it as a shoulder harness, one of the options they suggest in the brochure. If you happen to wear a backpack or other bag, it could easily attach to that instead of you.
This is a great item to add to your safety equipment while running, biking or doing any activity when it is dark. You can purchase it through Amazon if you are interested. As always, there will be no compensation for us should you choose to make a purchase. We just like to share good quality items with our readers!
