Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome light--will keep you I used this product on three night paddles recently while paddling from Frt. Pierce, Fl, to NOLA. Both times I was highly visible in my outrigger canoe from at least 1/4 mile away (I know this, because I was in communication with folks on land while I paddled in to meet them). Between this light strapped to my aft iako, my headlamp, and the reflective tape on both iakos, my OC1 was lit up like a mini-cruise ship--minus the horrible emissions and not very well treated sewage. I've also used this light when camping, as it's easy to hang in the tent, and is extremely bright. I would not do a major--or even minor--excursion without this light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect solution Besides being light weight, easily mounted & stored, and in compliance with Tempe Town Lake's requirement for a 360 degree stern light or face a $100 fine, (and a red or red/green bow light). it's two LED's make my kayak highly visible without ruining your and other boater's night vision. I've used it on 2 moonlight paddles and people who use those ultra bright head lamps are to be avoided because their vision is largely limited to the narrow range of their head lamp as opposed to someone who's eyes are adjusted to and depending on the moonlight. When they turn their heads to see your face, they can ruin your night vision. Excellent product for my needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Kayak Light I've had this light for several years, using it for night paddles in the Seattle area. Reliable, bright, waterproof, and good battery life. However, I've just returned from a two month paddle up the inside passage, and I'm even more impressed. I kept this light clipped on my back deck, exposed the entire time, and it still works like a champ. Other supposedly waterproof gear eventually failed, but this light is still going strong. Fantastic!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great light period. I use this light at an anchor light on my sit on top kayak when I fish late night or before sun up. I fabricated 3 foot section of 1/2 PVC pipe into a mast, then added another 7 inch piece of 3/4 inch PVC to sit on top of the 1/2 inch and hold the light. I screwed everything together, use bungee and clips to connectall the pieces in case I roll. This allows me to put the light above my head for true 360 degree visibility by others around me. I place the end of the pipe in a scotty mount, which I custom cut to lock it in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty Sweet I have used this little light for two reasons... #1 - Attached to the back of my boat paddling the lake at night to make me visible to motor boats etc. The suction lasted the entire time but the chord was a good piece of mind to ensure it didn't fall of the boat. Light is bright but not a great flashlight to see where i'm headed. Paired with a headlamp might be best. #2 - as a lantern on a campsite table. Sweet little light.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great light, but... This light was awesome. I recent purchased 2 new kayaks for general recreation and fishing. I knew that I was going to be fishing in the late evenings and be paddling home in the dark. This light is small, light, and easily carried, stored, is very bright and emits a general overall great level of light in the immediate vicinity of your personal watercraft. It allows your watercraft to be seen from a very far distance, offering the safety and compliance I was looking for. I also have a small fishing boat, so was looking for a multi-purpose light that I could also use as a stern light on my boat. Well... I attached the suction cup to the top of my 8 hp gas motor, and was as happy with the effect on my boat as my kayak. Unfortunately, as I was motoring back to camp in the dark, the suction cup let loose, most likely due to the vibration of the motor, and the light fell into the lake and sank. I did not tether the light to the boat (I know, my bad). The positives were that the light is waterproof, and stayed lit under the water (est. 100 hours). My buddy who was also heading back to camp passed over the light in the lake, and thought it was an alien spacecraft under the water. It bugged him out! For grins, the next night we happen to motor down the lake and the light was still shining brightly from the bottom of the lake, under the water, but still clearly visible on the surface. I regret that I inadvertently littered. In reality, I was hoping that this light would serve dual purposes, and I'll most likely buy a second one, for at least use on the kayak.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not for textured boats I love this so much that I have two, however it only attaches to smooth hulls, so if you don't have a completely smooth hull (like my neighbors, whose kayaks we often borrow), you have to find some other way to attach it. The connector hook is great, so if the suction does fail, you don't lose the light. It is definitely visible at night from far off, as we've tested it, and its so bright I keep it behind me so I can have some level of night vision. I keep these in the trunk of my car and use them as emergency lights. I've also taken one camping once and used it like a lantern on the table during storms. I also have dunked them underwater when clamming at dusk in the shallows. Lots of creative uses.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Safe and bright Paddlers Light I frequently paddle at night and this light makes me feel much safer when other larger boats approach me. The LED light has a substantial suction cup that really works. I like the way the light reflects on me, as I paddle, so that I can be extremely visible. I also like the ease of battery replacement.

Is there a taller version of this same light? Maybe 18"-24"? I like to double the usefulness of my stern light by turning it into a tiny pole for a lightweight flag. Thank you.

Asked by: JPalen1983
Unfortunately they do not make a taller version of this light.

Would you recommend the suction cup or well-nut base for an ABS boat? 

Asked by: OldLadyPaddler
We recommend the suction cup for ABS so long as the surface it will attach to is fairly smooth.
