    The vis360 is 130g for the front & back lights and the battery. Unless you spent serious money on your helmet, it's not all that noticeable and slides off easily when not needed.

    I use that as my second light, and love it. On the trails I just point it off to the right when approaching another user. Apart from being backup, it serves the same use you envision--highlighting...

    I actually don't mind paying something, as I appreciate the parks and I know that NPS is chronically underfunded. I just think their fee schedule is insane.

    Right, you've already pointed out the false equivalency. So no, it doesn't work both ways. You're also responding to what I said without looking at the context: the question I was answering was "why...
