Rugged and reliable, the Kayalite is engineered to meet U.S. and international standards for night navigation of a kayak, SUP or canoe. The Kayalite is waterproof, buoyant, submersible to 1000 feet, and runs on 3 AA batteries (included) for up to 200 hours. To attach the Kayalite, a nylon-coated tension cable clips on and pulls taut to any fixed point of attachment on your deck, or to Kayalu's easy-to-install eyelet kit. Tackle night paddling with a Kayalite, the #1 choice of paddlers and anglers worldwide.
Mast is made of ABS, mast hardware and bungee rings are marine-grade stainless teel, lens is made of LEXAN, fasteners are plated steel breech clip, bungee cable is nylon coated, and base cushion is EVA foam
Got this light last year and used it on the river to navigate at night. It's true you can see it a longways off and it's bright! Don't be caught on the water without it, it could save your life and it's small enough to keep in your kayak all the time. Also works great in the tent.
This light has great visibility and is simple to install on any kayak that has either bungee lines or eyelets for bungee lines. When attached to a bungee line it will not be quite as secure as attached to an eyelet, but the well thought out cord tightened clip will hold the light in place in most circumstances.
In short, I had to order another one for my wife's kayak. The light stands high enough to increase visibility even when it is behind you. I recommend it for anyone kayaking after dusk or before dawn.
