Whether you're trail running, hiking, camping, or backpacking, a good headlamp with a bright light is an important piece of gear to bring along with you.

These headlamps from Amazon are versatile pieces of equipment that you'll use again and again, even if you aren't a trail runner. I have one that I use regularly during camping trips, they're awesome for getting stuff done around the campsite (like cooking or going to the bathroom) when it's dark outside.

These are perfect for going on a night run or training for and running an ultramarathon. The simple and easy-to-use lighting technology and high light output make them great for all sorts of uses, and their battery life is long enough that you can use them for many hours before charging the batteries or recharging them.
