I have been using the nitecore thumb in red mode clipped to my shirt when I am running. It seemed to be a perfect light for that… lightweight, good clip, long battery life.
But it died in light rain, so I was hoping to find something similar which is more water resistant…
I’m using the Armytek Zippy for running. Just white light unfortunately, but I think this makes no difference for safety.
Thats a cool light I’ve never seen before, thanks! Its got everything I need but the red…
If you need the red light just to been seen: may I suggest the Fenix CL05
It is discontinued, but some stores do still have a few for sale. At least in EU.
Not afraid of a bit of rain. It’s 2m submersible.
RovyVon has some lights that have
constant red and blinking red leds.
The A8U and the A5R are some of those models, but they have others.
I compared their intensity here:
Here are some (better) photos comparing the RovyVon A8U and the RovyVon A5R!
I’ll show the front and the side emitters and how they perform (mostly in outdoor environment).
As mentioned above, the A8U has a better tint than the A5R, even if it implies less output on the front LEDs.
On the contrary, on the side the A8U Red and White emitters are stronger than the ones from the A5R.

They also have the A28W, a bigger light, with bigger battery and more runtime:
The Aurora A28 has a clear transparent polycarbonate case that allows the UV light to be useful and practical. As requested, the A28 comes with 2 options on the front LED - 6500K cool white for high output needs, and 5000K neutral white for high CRI...
Price: USD 56.95
I don’t think i can offer a sound advice since i’m not running, but maybe you should check biking lights. I see bikes passing by with a flashing red light clipped at the back or on the rider backpack for instance. There may even be similar running lights that recharge when running?
How about something like
Thanks for the recommendations.
