The Decathlon Kalenji Trail Running pack from Decathlon is also good, and only £28 but I prefer the features on the Aonijie
Nitecore HC30 More like £65 here sorry! Approx 130g, 1000 lumen brightness but only for 1hr, then 3.5hrs at 400 lumens
Silva Cross Trail 5 (also a great torch, a little heavier but cheaper than Petzl) £85, 230g, 500 lumens for 6 hours.

Lumefit LED light vest – I’m wearing this for running at night, our running club doesn’t allow anyone without lumo on! It’s fantastic, and I think it’s good value at £14 as you get flashing or not-flashing settings for white front and red back lights, and 2 soft, velcro reflective armbands.
