Product Review: Dorcy Lumen Headlight

A little while ago I was approached by the people at Dorcy asking if I would like to test out one of their products for a blog review. Since I have been wanting a new head lamp (one that actually works), I felt like this was a winning opportunity. I picked out the Lumen Headlight Broad Beam (now on sale!). It sounded promising. The package arrived and included batteries (nice touch!!). 

Pepper was not impressed

Note to self, after installing batteries and checking to see if the light works, do not shine the light directly into one's own face. I nearly blinded myself. Yikes! If this is how powerful the light was indoors, during the day time, I was excited to test it out at night! It has several different light features. Dim, full force, and blinking... In case you would like a strobe light running experience. :)

The headband was adjustable which is nice for when I am or am not wearing a baseball hat. Also, the light can tilt so it can be adjusted for your height and vision preferences.

With the summer solstice upon us and the sun shining well into the evening, I haven't quite needed to use the light yet in full darkness, but I know I will be prepared when the time comes!
And I will look super cool doing it! (Want an I Run with Fast Women shirt of your own? Get yours here! Proceeds benefit American Cancer Society.) (My shorts are "vintage" Oiselle green Lori shorts.)

Disclosures: I received the Dorcy light free in exchange for a review. I was not compensated in any other way for this review. All opinions shared are my own.


  1. Headlamps are also good for camping, bonfires and nightswimming. Just in case you'll be doing any of that this summer.

  2. Oh yeah, good point on the bonfires. I assume they would be helpful in s'more assembly.
