Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very light but not very bright; glare on glasses On the plus side, this is far lighter than a traditional helmet- or forehead-mounted headlight. But it is not very bright. I'm sure it's fine for supplemental lighting on urban/suburban streets with streetlights, where you just occasionally need a bit more light. But for the streetlight-less forest trail I use, it's really not enough. Maybe I'll try adding a second one, since they are so darn lightweight. Another big problem is using these as an eyeglass wearer. Since the front of the light sits out past the edge of the hat brim, glare from the LED's on the eyeglasses makes it hard to see the dark landscape. This isn't a problem if you don't wear glasses. I may try modifying an old hat to see if I can mount the lamp a bit further back from the edge of the brim, so the brim will shield the eyeglasses from the glare from the lamp.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small Size but Big Help! Works well for late night walks. Fills in where there are few to no street lights. Helps w/safety around traffic. Love my little "toady" light. Practical, inexpensive, lightweight, small & sporty looking. As a woman, I would say "cute!" :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! Fall is right around the corner so morning runs have started out rather dark. I needed something to not only see but to also let people see me. I was turned off by the hat lights that are made for campers since they are bulky and heavy. I was wary since this is a rather new product from Amphipod and has no reviews but for the price I thought it was worth risking it. This little guy packs a punch! It's super small, less than 2 cubic inches, slides easily on the bill of your hat and stays put during your run. I tested it out the night before in my house with the lights off and could easily see around me in pitch black darkness. On the road it preformed very well. Easily can be turned on and off. One press on top is constant light, second click is a strobe, not sure why this is necessary as it would seem to give me a headache on a run if there was a blinking light but if it makes someone feel more safe, at least they have the option. Great product for the price, the smallest one I could find from a reliable company. While Amphipod makes running products I see myself taking this guy along on the next camping trip rather than hauling a flash light around with me. Two thumbs up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for that early morning half-marathon race The Maui Half-Marathon/Marathon started at 5 am on September 21st so it was dark for about an hour. Parts of the course are devoid of street lights. The Swift-Clip Light weighs almost nothing but provides about 10-15 feet of light, just enough for running. Other runners complimented us and thanked us for providing some light. It's probably perfect for ultra-light backpacking, too.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Powerful, but a bit fragile I've used this product for over 10 months, and would have given it 5 stars, except that the plastic clip has cracked on 1 side, so that the grip is much less secure. I will continue to use it, but I would hope that Amphipod would use a stronger polymer for the visor clip in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great running light This light is great to put on cap while running. I don't notice the weight. It puts enough light to make the runner visible as well as to see the road but not so bright as to blind.

when changing batteries what is the correct placement--as far as positive and negative when you put the replacement batteries in the slot?

Asked by: Bradzo6
When replacing the batteries, the positive sides of the CR2032 batteries both face the clip side of the light.

Will this hold up to rain?

Asked by: l0dixon
The rubber casing does offer some water resistance, but we do not advise using the light in heavy rain as it could damage the light.

can you attach this light to a bicycle helmet?

Asked by: amphipod clip on light
This light clips to the helmet’s visor (if you have a visor on your helmet) but otherwise would not work with a bike helmet.

How many lumens is this light?  I can't find anything online other than two of them together are brighter than a "typical" headlamp.  Thanks

Asked by: tallgalexplorer
Unfortunately the manufacturer did not put a set lumens rating on the item. Amphipod estimates the light at roughly 10 lumens.
