Handheld. Specifically, the Coast single super-bright LED handheld pictured above.

Why the green? Is it easier on your eyes or do features stand out better? I've only ever tried plain white light.

Green is easy on the eyes. Especially when you finish your run and go back into well lit areas (or try to drive) your eyes adapt quickly. With the white LED's, everything hurts my eyes after the run.

Plus after an hour or two, it gives you a really cool tunnel vision feeling.

I think green makes all the roots and rocks stand out a little better so you trip less. Also makes it a bit harder for a sniper to take you out.

When was the last time a sniper tried to make a hit on Brownie? Most have been playing with the married women again.

Me I go for the headlamp most of the time so my other hands are free for laying trail. Have done the combo thing and that helps even more but just more weight to lug around.

Centipede needs both hands free...one for the tweezers and one for the pic of Rosie O'Donnell.

The moon, absolutely, very cheap.

Headlamp, I always carry two bottles when I run or walk as be the case lately.

Hey, Rosie is kind of hot if you turn your head to the side and squint real hard...ok that doesn't even work. Now Bugs Bunny when he dresses like a girl, that's hot!!!

Headlamp. I prefer to run w/ handbottles so unless it is the beginning of a race and I only need light for about an hour or so, I will use a small handheld.

Hand-held! Hand-held flashlights need to be held low and parallel to the ground, so that you cast a shadow and show the height of all trail obstacles. A headlamp won't do that; it is about the same height as your eyes. If you point it down at the trail, it won't cast a shadow, and you'll be tripping over roots and rocks all of the time.
That's why I excel at the night portion of a 100-mile trail run. All of the headlamp geeks are tripping their asses off.

Headlamp, unless there is enough ambient light or moonlight.

Both!
