    Lightbulb My version of waist-level lighting for night hiking.



    I ended up using zip-ties to serve as attachment points for my Princeton Tec Quad to the buckle of my Jam. Turned out pretty well if you ask me.





    The buckle opens/closes as normal without the headlamp on, and it's easy to add or remove with the notches that are there to remove the band.

    I have my night hiking solution :

    RWheeler, great job. You definitely saved some money over my solution, which was to buy a product called the LiteBelt made by GoMotion. I bought it for a couple ultamarathons which involved night running/walking. Having the light source at belt level definitely lets you see a lot better than having it right above your eyes -- no glare, casts shadows giving you better depth perception. Your solution makes a lot more sense for hiking than my dedicated LiteBelt since it's a lot lighter and you can switch it back and forth from a waist light to a head lamp depending on need.
