Flip Belt Light
FlipBelt’s LED Running Light allows you to both see and be seen while on your run in low to no light situations. The classic FlipBelt is a comfortable running belt alternative to running armbands that don’t fit all your things and bulky running pouches that bounce as you move. The FlipBelt is specifically designed to sit flat and securely on your hips without bouncing or riding up.

- USB Rechargeable
- 500 Lumen Cree LED with 8-12 Hour Burn Time
- IPX6 Waterproof Rating and weighs only 5. 6 ounces
- High, medium, low, and strobe settings

I like this much better than a headlamp and it works well with the FlipBelt – as it should. The light is more stable and you get a better field of vision. The battery has held up through several longer night runs and the light intensity variety is well chosen, although I personally can’t imagine ever using the strobe light.
This is an excellent running light! Mounts very securely on a FlipBelt on top of my phone. Does not bounce when running. Very bright and has an excellent consistent circular light pattern. The high setting is great at lighting up the sidewalk in front of me. Perfect for my early morning street runs. Far superior to the Ultraspire 200 waist light that I previously used. I highly recommend the FlipBelt and this light.

Although I’ve tried a number of running lights over the years, I never felt that headlamps were that comfortable or that effective at brightening up early-morning runs. The FlipBelt running light shines at waist level, which is ideal when you want to see dark pavement or a technical trail. I was briefly concerned about the size, but it fits so snugly into my FlipBelt (and maybe even better in my FlipBelt crops) and never bounces. As an extra bonus, it is incredibly bright but charges with a USB, so I don’t have to buy a ton of expensive batteries every few weeks. Seems to provide me with about ~8 hours of bright illumination before it needs to be recharged, and that process is relatively quick.
I’ve had the flipBelt for several years and it’s been comfortable. Now I needed a better light to run and wanted something better than a headlamp or hand lights. A friend had a different but similar light but the price was too much for me so I searched for alternatives. I was pleased to see the FlipBelt made one that was 500 lumens and a decent price. The light is bright and very wide making it easy to see wide and far ahead. And again, the belt is comfortable and the light does not bounce inside the belt. I highly recommend it even if just out walking.

I bought this light to train for and race in the Leadville 100 and it worked great. The flipbelt has become my go-to running accessory as it holds my phone and keys better than any of my other belts. The ability to add the light is super convenient. For Leadville, I needed the light for 7-8 hours and it worked like a champ. I used it in the low setting much of the time and bumped it up to high when the terrain got technical.

Iâ€™ve used this light for a couple months and absolutely love the amount of light it puts out. When running with friends they turn off their headlamps and mine is bright enough for everyone when running roads. I already have several FlipBelts and this was an excellent addition to that system.

This is one of those possessions that just makes me happy. I was apprehensive about spending so much on a light for running at night, but it’s been one of the best purchases I’ve made. I run on a lot of gnarly sidewalks and dirt paths daily. The fact that the light is mounted lower makes shadows pop out, making it easier for my eyes to perceive inconsistencies in footing ahead. Cars seen my easily. Used it daily for 3+ months now and it’s still going strong. No complains honestly.
The flip belt light is easy to use; rechargeable; durable. The flexible piece which holds the light and fits into a flip belt is easy to use and I donâ€™t notice it. I was able to use this light with a knock off waist belt with ease but decided to get the original Flipbelt to minimize bouncing (knock off belt was too flimsy/elastic). I recently used it for a technical trail race that went into the dark for several hours and it was fantastic! Able to see good detail on the trail for a nice window ahead of and around me… far superior to a headlamp.My only complaint is that you have to cycle through each setting to turn it off or to get to a previous setting. Itâ€™s a minor annoyance but not enough to take away from how good the light is overall

I primarily use this light to inline skate at night. I was apprehensive buying a light on amazon as Iâ€™ve bought other LED lights that were subpar. This light however is solid. The various light modes allow you to extend the battery life. Recharging is easy. The flip belt accessory you have to purchase to hold the light is comfortable. It is able to be adjusted up for further visibility or down towards the ground if you donâ€™t want to blind everyone in front of you. Worth the investment over the cheap alternatives. Do yourself a favor and buy this light setup so you can avoid frustration from the competition.
