It’s official – Fall and dark running is officially upon us. I have refused to believe it is so, but alas I can no longer hide myself from it. This change means that me, and all runners, need to up their visibility game in their apparel and accessories. The Origin Headlamp by Eukaraya, which is coming up to the end of their campaign on October 10th (and will be funded) looks to be a really solid option for those like me who need a new running headlamp.
The Origin is perfect for all runners, but I believe it will resonate specifically with PNW runners. It is designed with high quality renewable materials (a real wood body, recycled aluminum frame), minimal plastics, and a rechargeable battery.
There are two color options – a forest green band with a cherry wood body and a maroon band with zebra wood body. The light itself is a solid 300 lumen LED that will get you between 4-15 hours of use (depending on the setting) and a charge time of 60-120 minutes. The LED is said to have a more natural color spectrum compared to the harsh blue light of many headlamps on the market.
In addition to using for running, this would be a great addition to your hiking packs in the summer or even for doing work in attics, crawlspaces, and basements.
The Eykarya team is also planting a tree with every purchase, so you are doubly supporting the environment with every purchase.
