  1. John Davenport

    This hands down is the best light I’ve had so far, it’s bright and light. No more sore neck from those bulky headlamps. Only thing to remember is if you add a phone and goods to your pocket to tighten your belt down extra, it was a little bouncy at full speed.

  2. Beth Ann Matlock

    Did an evening trail run wearing the 600 3.0 and saw way more frogs than i wanted too!! Was able to hold my personal items. Did need to tighten the belt a bit so it didn’t bounce. Once belt was tightened all was good

  3. Jeff Fullmer

    Started using this last winter and it is steller on the trails in the snow and helps significantly with footing. Love it in the summer to avoid small rocks and cannot believe what a difference it makes in my peripheral vision! “3D Lighting” is something you have to experience for yourself. I can now swivel my head and look around with my headlamp without the trail disappearing because I have the waist light always pointing forward where I need it most. No more stumbling in the dark! I even use it in the pre-dawn hours for road running and can keep my phone & keys in the pouch. In love and cant wait to try out the new multi-sport waist light.

    This light/belt combination is outstanding! Great for early morning runs in the dark. Hands free and lights my way so I do not stumble or fall. Very satisfied and high recommend.

  5. Martin Schneekloth

    No more stumbling through the woods at night, stubbing my toes, tripping and falling on my face. Running ultras frequently has me out on the trails at night. Running on trails at night makes good depth perception extremely important. Wearing this light on my waist as 100% eliminated depth perception issues and I am no longer tripping and falling because I am unable to see a rock or root protruding from the trail. In addition, I barely feel this belt, which speaks to its fantastic design. Great product all around!

    Great light. I have worn it for dozens of runs. Trail and road, including a 12 hour night trail race(I used two batteries). Solid, consistent light cone. Almost no bounce, and the little there is, doesn’t bother me given the beam is so wide the edges of the light are almost outside my peripheral vision. I like the removable phone pouch, but I wish it was better secured. It can become quite bouncy at higher paces. I have to tighten the belt down very tight to try and prevent bounce.

    What can I say about the Lumen 600 3.0? Hmm… I don’t have anything bad to say about it. So I’ll just share my story. For years I’ve been running the roads in the early morning hours. Where I live there are no trails open before sunrise. I’ve used headlamps of varying lumens. So as I run on the roads in the pre-dawn hours, folks in their cars that start an early commute aren’t always looking out for a runner. Most cars don’t stop at stop signs. And I’ve even seen drivers faces in their cars as they’re lit from the glow of their phones. My headlamps did nothing to gain their attention. So enter the Lumen 600 3.0!! This light is a game changer for anyone that runs on the roads when the sun is not up. Cars now stop at signs even when I’m twenty yards away. Drivers see me coming at them and actually share the roadway with me. The light has three levels of brightness and a strobe function. I was once flashed by a car as I used the full 600 lumens! The securing buckle is easy to use and even easier when you need to release it, even with cold fingers. The removable small pouch is useful to carry my phone, an energy bar and my keys. This waist light is unlike any other light I’ve used. It puts headlamps to shame because of where you wear it. UltrAspire calls it 3D lighting and it allows you to see any changes in the road and trail, making running safer so you know where you can plant your feet with confidence. If you can only have just one light… choose the Lumen 600 3.0. You won’t regret it!

    Love it, I have used for many 100s and night training runs, this is v well thought out. convenient wait belt with lights. the pouch is back is handy, it could be less bouncy but given the main feature of lighting works flawlessly . I still give 5 star. charging is convenient before 100s, in 2nd brightest mode it will run 8hrs easily and lights up trail v well.

    This light is everything it was promised to be. I love my headlamp but this does not slip and is bright enough, even on low, to assist fellow runners. There really are no shadows! Extra bonus, I can always see where my feet are going even when I turn my head to look at something. I love great gear.

    I run hundreds of miles per year in the dark of the early morning. I am a traditional headlamp runner, and use black diamond spots (rechargeable) or icons on trails that vary from very steep ski hill climbs to soft forest meanders. Although I have done the pre-dawn run thing for years, I find that headlamps annoy me in a couple of ways – strain on the neck, and pressure of the headband on my skull. I decided to try the Lumen 600 waist light — and the bottom line up front is that I really like it, although make no mistake, it is very different than a headlamp! I have used my Lumen on a dozen runs over various terrains, and it is a fantastic lamp for the trail. I usually use the brightest setting until 15 or 20 minutes before dawn and then down select to the medium lighting. I am not really sure I get a “3-D” effect with shadows, but the oncoming trail is well lite no matter the pace. Once I am home I unscrew the button and plug in the recharge cable, and I am always ready to go the next day. The simplicity of the button is a huge bonus; plus, the fact that the beam can be rotated up or down depending on terrain makes it easy to use. But, there are a couple of drawbacks if you are a dedicated headlamp user. First, the beam is focused on the trail, and you can not suddenly illuminate something off to the side or even look at your watch face. With a headlamp the light tracks your eyes – hear a strange sound and you look towards the bush, it is illuminated. With the waist lamp, when you turn your head it is just peering into darkness! My first run with the Lumen was very disorienting for this reason. By the 3 run I was over the disorientation, and running at pace, but still missed the ability to redirect the light beam simply by turning my head. The second issue I have is using the “fanny pack” holding my phone. The belt has to be cinched tightly to stop any bounce, and I find that uncomfortable. My solution is to put my phone in my shorts, and with just the lumen lamp the belt feels great. Would I recommend the Lumen to others? Absolutely! I do like the light on the trail, but I also would like to have a way to direct the lamp towards the sounds of the approaching bears….

    Used many times, it it illuminates my way clearly so rocks/undulating terrain do not pose tripping hazards – due to the light, that is :). The light has three brightness settings and a strobe; for example I use the bright setting on a trail, the low/medium settings when I’m on a paved path, and the bright strobe setting when I run by speeding cars. The only issue I have encountered with the light is a physical one: because it sits on the waist it did not light the path I needed to follow when I climbed a steep rocky trail in predawn hours.

    It comes with a pouch on the rear where goods can be stored, up to a large phone in size. However, the belt needs to be cinched tightly to keep that laden pouch from bouncing during faster paces or aggressive downhills.

    Great light – highly recommend.

    The Lumen 600 3.0 is awesome! I’ve only had mine for a few weeks now and it has saved my ankles from injury more times than I can count already. You truly have such a better field of vision with a waist light like this that it makes me wonder why I hadn’t switched earlier. Plus its light so you barely feel it – you can still wear a normal headlamp so just in case you want to peer deep off in the woods you can use it like a spotlight. I love the little pocket as well for added bonus storage for a phone or gel – Prior to that I had to wear a waist belt for stuff like that if I wasn’t wearing a pack

  13. Robert Youngren

    I’ve been a long time headlamp wearer. I’ve been running at night through various activities from training runs to overnight ultras from almost 30 years now. In all that time I really never considered using a waist light at all. Sure, sometimes I’d wear a headlamp as a waist light when I wanted to double up my light sources but never a true, purpose built, waist light. That all changed when I heard good things about the UltrAspire Lumen series and decided to give the Lumen 600 3.0 a try. Wow, I had no idea what I’d been missing! I’m ready to throw away the several generations of headlamps and hand lights I’ve acquired over the years!

    Just having a light source at waist level that helps cast shadows on the terrain at night is one thing; it gives dimension to an environment that seems to lose dimension with just a headlamp only. But to also have the rechargeable, long lasting battery life to get me through an entire night with out worry? Gamechanger! Also, I like the fact that the light itself is removable from it’s cradle so you can use it as a point source if need be which is often convenient (map, sign reading, sasquatch sighting, etc…) There really isn’t much else I can add in praise that hasn’t already been said. However, I really do have a bit of hopefully constructive criticism to pass on and is the reason I took away a star from a perfect rating.

    The removable zip pocket. Ugh! I never had the issue with bounce that some have mentioned, even running at pretty good speed (sub 5:30 min/mile pace) with my large Galaxy phone inside, I didn’t have any issues after a bit of adjustment. However, what I don’t like about the removable zip pocket is that, because its designed to be easy on / easy off, the later can lead to infuriating out comes. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve finished a run and clicked on the release buckle only to have the zip pocket, weighted down by my phone, slingshot around and trebuchet my phone to the ground! It’s not intuitive to remember to hold onto each side of the waist belt when you release the buckle like a fanny pack. I’d strongly recommend either just integrate the pocket into a future lumen waist light system or add a locking mechanism (snaps?) to keep the pocket a bit more securely attached to the waist belt. I’m all about the convenience of adding or removing pockets or other things to this waist belt, but it’s not something that has to be done in seconds; I’m perfectly happy to have to snap lock a pocket to a waist belt. This will probably also help with any issues of the pocket wanting to wander around the waist belt as you run.

    Anyhow, this is such a minor but extremely annoying issue that can probably easily be rectified. I love this light but just now have to be much more cautious when I take it off!

    Excellent lamp for trail running into the night! With the 600 lumen I can safely make it to the finish line on one battery. It’s a bonus as well to have the small back pouch to carry nutrition, water, or my phone. Highly recommend this one for trail runners!

  15. Jeremy Swan (verified owner)

    Great waist lamp! There’s no bounce, couldn’t even tell I was wearing it when racing. The LED light was great, you could clearly see everything! Great product!!

  16. David Theriot

    Game changer! I love the brightness, the battery life, the fact that it’s rechargeable OR I can carry a spare battery! It’s perfect for running the trails at night. It’s also a high quality piece of equipment.

  17. stephen.tiek (verified owner)

    Have been using this for a while after transitioning from headlamps and I absolutely love it. Light output is adequate enough have not had to ever use it on full power out on the trails and still had enough light to see around me. Battery life is great as well I purchased a spare battery and so far have not had to change it out while running. Bounce if any is so minimal I hardly notice it. Overall a great light

  18. Jess Riffner

    I have been using the Lumen 600 3.0 for my daily 5am runs on the trails for about a month now. This light is a game changer! I was using an old Lumen 220 in combination with a headlamp. I am so glad that I pulled the trigger on an upgrade. The 600 does such an excellent job lighting the trail that I do not even think about bringing my headlamp along. The way it casts shadows from the waist makes every rock and root visible. The brightness of the “medium” setting is enough for me to see every obstacle that lies ahead. The elastic waistband ensures that there is no bounce and I forget that I even have it on. I highly recommend this product for anyone putting in miles in the dark.

  19. Martin Janoschek

    Plenty of lumens for most endeavors.
    Allows quick swap of 18650 rechargeable batteries, extending running time.
    Great battery life, ~6 hours at 600 lumens.
    25+ runs with this light, zero issues.
    Wide beam, too wide (I added a collimating lens to the front, narrowed the beam significantly).
    The rear pad/pouch is a bit odd, felt bouncy when I added my phone.
    Battery orientation wasn’t obvious, I added ‘+’ and ‘-‘ on the outside of the light housing with silver Sharpie to make it more obvious.

  20. Ralph Pillinger (verified owner)

    By far and away the best lumen out there! I bought both, the 600 and the 800. This one is my favorite, turns night into day, with perfect shadows and no tunnel vision you get from headlamps. The battery life is great too, with rechargeable and easy to replace on the move batteries makes this lumen an absolute must!

  21. Adam Evans

    I purchased this light for my first 100-mile Ultra. I had a headlamp on but hardly ever turned it on because the waist light was perfect and didn’t mess with my depth perception. I ran the waist light on the middle setting for over 10 hrs and had a back up battery that I only used for a couple hrs but the main battery didn’t completely go dead. I highly recommend this light. I plan to use for future runs and also for just working around the house and barn. It’s well worth the money.
