WAREHAM, Mass. (Jan. 20, 2009) â€“ GoMotion, makers of torso-mounted lights for active lifestyles, announces its innovative LED light designed for waist packs of all kinds will be on display at the Outdoor Retailer Winter Market show being held Jan. 22-25 in Salt Lake City, Utah.
GoMotion (www.gomotiongear.com) will show both the 1-watt and 3-watt models of its Waist Light Kit â€“ an attachable light designed to make most hydration belts, lumbar packs and a wide variety of waist packs even more useful in the dark. GoMotion lights allow the users to run, hike, walk or ski in the dark hours of the day without restrictions of carrying a flashlight or experiencing the discomfort of wearing a headlamp. The light is great for backcountry skiing, Nordic touring, and snowshoeing as well.
The new Waist Light Kits feature a low-profile Luxeon LED with multiple functions including adjustable beam angle, wide ranging beam width control and three brightness level options.
Two models will be offered: a rechargeable 3-watt that retails for $89.95 and 1-watt option selling for $59.95. The kits are expected to be on the shelves in late summer or early autumn. A red blinking safety light can be attached at the rear to provide extra visibility.
â€œWe’ve had good success with our Sternum Light Kits that attach to backpacks or hydration vests,â€ said Jonathan Craig, co-founder of GoMotion. â€œThis is an extension of that, taking the light down the torso to attach to products like racing and training belts used by runners or fanny packs used by hikers.â€
GoMotion’s line of LED lights come in four distinct styles – the Trail Runner ($119.95), the Street Runner ($99.95), the Sport Runner LiteBelt ($79.95) or the Sternum Light Kit. The Trail Runner vest can accommodate hydration cells up to 1 liter, and has an organized, tricot lined, accessory pocket. GoMotion also offers a rechargeable NiMH battery kit with a wall charger.
The complete line of GoMotion products are available across the U.S. at select outdoor gear stores, On-Line, and more than two dozen Eddie Bauer retail outlets. GoMotion lights other than the Sternum Light Kits and Waist Belt Kits come attached to performance packs, vests, and belts made of breathable mesh and high-tech fabrics offering unparalleled comfort and flexibility.
