For anyone who regularly takes a walk in the night, enjoys bicycling when the sun goes down or simply is an avid night jogger, you will know how important a lighting system in these situations really is. Without having lights in front of you shinning your way, you can easily get lost. However, there are few options for night runners in this regard as most wearable headlamps that are either not illuminated enough for a run or wobbly and uncomfortable to use during a run in the evening hours.
This is where the LED Lenser SEO5 comes in. It is designed for runners from the ground up, although it can also be used on a bicycle to replace bike headlamps or for other purposes, such as night walks or evening low-light fishing. A person can simply put it on their forehead and turn the light to be able to see at night. What truly makes this headlamp system special is some of the features it comes packed with. For instance, it offers a Red Light Mode in order to preserve a runner’s night vision. It comes packaged with 20-180 lumens of a range of 40-120 meters, which is plenty for anyone and will keep everything in front illuminated during a run or other activity.
The white variation has a white strap, instead of grey, and the whole LED frame is also white in appearance. The only black is the bezel or section holding the LED in place that the strap attaches to. The red variety has a section around the LED Lenser SEO5 white and a small section of the bezel holding it as well as parts of the strap. All of these styles look good and use color in a nice way, giving them something to like.
- Various focusing options on the fly
- 20-180 lumens of lighting
- 40-120 meter range
- Up to 25 hours of run time
- Adjustable head strap
- Water resistance level IPX6
Running before the sun sets or after sundown is really a relaxing way to either start or end your day. You can go to sleep more easily or wake up and start your day more energized and refreshed, so if you haven't tried it give running morning or night ago. The main thing that keeps many of us from doing it when we should is the darkness. If you use this headband, you should find it no problem to run at any time of the night. The angle of the LED Lenser SEO5 is also great, so you don't have to worry about just seeing right in front of you and up to a close distance as in many other flashlight-type headbands. Again, it adjusts settings for various weather conditions and times of day, so you should find the right setting for your needs. LED Lenser SEO5 is also water resistant so you can use it while a light shower or mist hits you.
