I bought this last October. I tried using this around my waist.. NG. I realized quickly that my rear fender trunk blocked the blink. So the best way for me to wear the flashing ring is over the opposite shoulder (diagonal from neck to waist.) I think this is good because it provides some road identity confusion. Drivers have to focus to figure out what the strange angled blinking shape is. Slows them down and they'll know where you are on the road. (Posted on 3/3/14)
I reviewed this soon after I bought one. Since then, I've used it a number of times, often when walking back late from the skating rink, or when I have to take my bicycle out after dark. But I think the best place for it is around my tailpack. On or off, it's a great VIZ boost. Only remaining glitch: the switch is very hard to find and operate. http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8261/8667202128_851a11339f_m.jpg (Posted on 4/22/13)
Very well made, and ditto the comments re: visibility. If they don't see you wearing this, they shouldn't be driving. Only gripe is the length - too long for my 34" waist. Belt is marked "Large", so I assume there is a "small" and "medium", just not here. (Posted on 12/23/12)
I both walk and bike to work. This thing serves as a wakeup call to comatose drivers. I've yet to use it on the motorcycle, but I'm sure it would be useful there too. In addition to being lit up, it's very reflective.
I only wish it came in smaller waist sizes as it hangs loose on me. (Posted on 10/23/12)
I wear this when I bicycle in the winter months. I get home from work and it's completely dark. After a couple of close calls with cars who are not used to looking for bikes this time of year, I bought this light band. I throw it over my shoulder, hit the flash mode, and insta vision. Batteries last a full year for me. (Posted on 1/12/12)
