Rated 2 out of 5 by Fishboy Not their best effort!
Rarely write reviews, but here feel it necessary. I have a number of light and motion products including the superb Seca 1400, so assumed this one would be of the same quality. Sadly I was mistaken!
Firstly the 'pivot' bracket gets rubbish #sand and dirt# in between itself and the case of the lamp, and after just weeks of riding the case was badly scratched and gouged.
Secondly after a few days of heavy rain, it stopped working and was full of condensation. Chain reaction, with no hesitation, gave me a full refund superb service as usual. Before binning it, I took it apart and no way was this light ever going to resist heavy rain. No seals at all where the pivot bracket secures into the metal case, the seals over the USB port and switch are malformed and take a close look at the photo on the site - you can see it peeling away from the body in fact! and leave a hole for water to enter and the same is true where the plastic cover slots into the metal case.
Very expensive, Bright and great design; but that's means now't when it drops dead after a month for 100 euros

Rated 1 out of 5 by Swish Innacurate and misleading item description. Poor value for Money
This is not a helmet mounted light as described. It is a bulky seat post mounted light.
The amber side lights that are supposed to provide 180 degree visibility are dim - you will not be any more visible from the side with this light that any other rear light.
The rear red light is reasonable but it does not have a flashing mode and is much dimmer than expected given the price tag. Overall this light is way overpriced and very poor value for money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by citystromer not cheap, but worth every penny if you need a light that just keep on working
Had this light for over 2 years, used it 2 hours a day through the hole winter with snow and salt. It runs forever on a charge and you are sure to be seen, i use on the lowest setting and that is plenty of light. sits on a back, on your seatpost or most other places with a bit of fantasy, never had problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Superior Light
Best light I have owned. I have owned one over one year and going strong, use every day. Well constructed, easily recharged, reasonable battery life, good range of settings, and very VISIBLE x 180 degrees. Good fitting options, i do not use supplied bracket but attach on strap at rear of Topeak rack bag. The red button to allow adjustment can get a bit sticky with age and dirt but easily cleaned, I have some concerns about longevity of return spring in this attachment fitting however, and it is not helmet mounted as advertised here, unless it now comes with fittings not included in previous models. I purchased at considerably less than price here, but was on special. On other hand, they have been more expensive than $111.00 in the past.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Best tail light that exists
I bought this item mainly because I wanted the drivers to know that I exist on the road too. If anyone has ever drove in Greece should already know that it's very difficult and even worst if you are a cyclist! With Light & Motion 180 all the drivers keep a distance from me than with other tail lights.
It fits on the bike seatpost easy and the battery (if you keep charging it full) runs longer than it says (in high mode). The only problem is the battery compartment when you need to change the battery you have to send the light back to Light & Motion. Other than that it's a great tail light
