by fromBright little light also perfect on my tiny pooch! I bought the light for running in the dawn/dusk but recently found another great use- because it's so light weight, I clip it on my 13 lb dog's collar and he never complains~ (normally he wiggles off anything extra I put on him in addition to his collar). It totally beats any other "leash light" you find in the pet store and the clip stay put! Highly recommended!

by fromSomewhat of an improvement from previous Overall a slight improvement over previous design, mostly because the clip actually works and it is lighter. It is bright, however, it is not as bright as older, 5-LED design. The CR2032 batteries are also a bit hard to replace, they will tend to pop right back out before you can close cover. Also, you have to make sure rubber seal remains in place as you close unit back up. I feel one of my units died prematurely due to moisture (sweat) getting in because the rubber seal was out of place after replacing the batteries. Overall it's a good balance of brightness, size, and useage flexibility due to the clip.

by fromLight and Bright You'll barely notice you are wearing it, but this light won't fall off. The clip works great and is easy to get on/off. It could be a bit brighter but this is definitely an awesome light at this price!

by fromImprovement over it's older predecessor I have 2 of these strobe lights and use them generally a few times a week for early morning runs and any race events that take place in the early morning hours. They have worked well and a definite improvement over the older previous Nathan strobe light. I have not used any other brand strobe lights so at present I can only compare Nathan's older version with this newer one. Pros: Overall build quality and ergonomics is better. A more durable designed strobe light, especially when dropped. The clip that holds the strobe to a belt stays put better. Slightly lighter weight. Cons: Uses Lithium CR2032 button batteries; I liked using my rechargeable AAAs. Not really any brighter in my opinion. Over all I am rather pleased with how these strobe lights have worked for me.

by fromAWESOME SAFETY DEVICE I bought the NATHAN clip-on amber strobe for walking along roads past dark. If we are still walking at dusk then it will be clipped to the back of the pack, just in case. These are inexpensive safety devices, NATHAN makes safety gear for road workers, road runners/joggers, etc. The LED lights are incredibly bright and are programable with either a flashing pattern or can be left ON. If it is unneeded not too much of a burden, size is about 3/4" thick, 2.5" tall, and 3/4" wide (easily fits in the palm of your hand). Weight is about an ounce! This little thing is AWESOME. When walking (jogging/bike riding) at night this thing is SHOCKINGLY BRIGHT. In strobe mode you don't want to be walking behind it because its flashing will make you crazy, the last person in the line needs to be wearing this. One of the best pieces of safety gear I've ever bought for use along the roadside!
