Bright idea

 

I just returned from East Sussex(staying with the ‘in-laws’, running the Cuckoo Trail) and during my stay the Nathan Lightbender proved itself invaluable once more.

What’s a Lightbender you ask……?  Well, it’s the clever little armband from Nathan, that not only lights up so brightly from a simple LED and runs from a standard watch battery, but it lasts forever*.

Genius item

It also makes a brilliant little night light, that in my case – hangs from the corner bedpost and allows me to quietly wake and dress myself without any brighter lights being necessary, meaning I can sneak out when ready, taking the light with me.

Early morning runs in matching socks?  Tops the right way round?  Family none the wiser?  Ability to pack that early morning running pack that you should have packed the night before but were too lazy?  YES!

This armband has previous seen me running as back marker during our store run outs and means that the leader can identify me easily – ensuring that the group is close enough together.

As a road safety item it’s a great way to make sure that you’re clearly visible at a distance and will flash if desired.

It’s fully adjustable via a Velcro strap and sits very comfortably when on.  It doesn’t wriggle free and weighs so little it doesn’t outstay its welcome.

* I have used it now for a year and have yet to even consider changing the battery.  Obviously, it won’t really last forever, that would be insane.
