I’m excited for any new products that will help me train safer outdoors. I was happy to try out a new product from NATHAN called the Luna Fire 250 RX. It’s a lightweight LED flashlight designed to be worn on the chest or waist.
It comes with an adjustable strap that the light clips on to. This gives you total freedom — use the strap, or clip the light on to existing belts, hats, or items of clothing. It’s entirely up to you!
I’ve tested the light quite a few times now and it’s so bright. There are different brightness levels, up to 250 lumens, plus a strobe option which I did not use while running.
From the two positions the light is designed for, wearing it at chest level worked best for me. At waist level it bounced around a lot more and a couple of times fell off the strap.
Wearing on the chest still generates a bit of bounce. On the last couple of outings, I actually decided to shorten the strap and wear it around my hat. This was perfect for me. It kept it so much more steady. The light can be tilted down allowing you to choose how far ahead the light shines on your path.
One of the things I love about this product, aside from how bright it is, is that I can recharge it via USB. It takes 3 hours to charge from empty and will last for hours (actual burn time will depend on the mode selected).
I’ll definitely keep on using this light as I train for my first Marathon next year. I’ll be training throughout the winter and this provides so much visibility when running the American Tobacco Trail.
