RunLites® Gloves Turn Night Into Light With Innovative Wearable Tech

Lightweight Gloves Turn Hands "On" With Built in Lights for Runners, Cyclists and Survivalists

PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 11, 2016 — (PRNewswire) —  You've got your sneakers laced up, a lanyard with your keys around your neck and a playlist ready-to-go.  Heading outside for a nighttime stroll or jog, you realize what's missing: light. 

For running, walking, cycling, hiking or hunting at night or for indoor tasks in low-light areas, RunLites gloves offer a solution that replaces clunky and uncomfortable head lamps, light-up vests, clip-on lights, and  handheld lights that limit the use of your hands.

Today, the dark ages of nighttime activities are officially over as RunLites® gloves make their debut.

Turning night into light, RunLites are an innovative wearable technology solution that puts light where it's needed most.  For running, walking, cycling, hiking or hunting at night or for indoor tasks in low-light areas, RunLites gloves offer a solution that replaces clunky and uncomfortable head lamps, light-up vests, clip-on lights, and  handheld lights that limit the use of your hands.

While there are nighttime safety solutions on the market that let the user be seen, RunLites patented gloves are a more convenient, unobtrusive innovation that allows users to actually see what is in front of them, not just be visible to others.  Mary Tiffin, President and CEO of RunLites, invented and patented the gloves because as a runner and working mother of three, she could only find time to exercise at night and was frustrated by the inefficiency of flashlights and headlamps. 

"RunLites are life lights," said Tiffin. "RunLites gloves offer a powerful, hands-free, comfortable and wearable solution for handling the dark—no matter what the application."

Available online at, the key innovative benefits of RunLites gloves include:

  • Lightweight and compact design, fitted with a hands-free safety light
  • Two brightness settings that can project 80 lumens of light up to 15 feet
  • 6-12 hours of USB re-chargeable battery life
  • Palm pocket for storage of IDs, keys, money, or music unit
  • Reflective strip for added safety
  • Unisex models in a range of colors offered in half-length dry-wick fabric ($34.99) and full-length polar fleece ($39.99)

RunLites gloves were recently named the winner of the regional Small Business Association's InnovateHER 2016 Challenge. Tiffin likens her "aha" moment of combining gloves and flashlights to the legendary brilliance of combining peanut butter and chocolate to create Reese's ever-popular peanut butter cups.  Drawing on her successful career background in fashion and technology, she developed RunLites with the help of the engineering team at Bucknell University's Small Business Development Center.
