For my purposes, winter running, I chose the RunLites Full-Length Fleece gloves. Not only do they have lights, but they also have a reflective strip along the top of the glove for extra visibility as well as touchscreen capability for the thumb and pointer finger in both gloves. You turn them on with one quick and easy touch and you're ready to go.
There are two brightness settings, both providing more light than a standard flashlight, that project up to 15 feet in front of you. They're powered by a rechargeable battery (USB cord included) that lasts up to 48 hours. The gloves themselves are soft, lightweight, and breathable. So, really, in regards to running in the dark, there is absolutely nothing these gloves can't do and no reason you shouldn't snag yourself a pair. Winter is far from over and darkness, well, it's a daily occurrence. Might as well get out there and run the night!
