The only product I have found that
really allows a skater to see in the dark is the
helmet-mounted spotlight. These are
typically manufactured for
mountain bikers so the easiest place to find
them is in a cycling shop.

One Problem With Helmet Lights
The big drawback
to skating with a helmet headlight is that it will
be so shockingly bright to people looking
directly at it, that it will probably annoy them,
and for sure it will temporarily disable
their night vision. Be sure to keep this in mind
when you are determing if it is safe to skate
with a headlight on your helmet (it is possible that
in some crowded skating situations a helmet headlight
might not be safe, because people might not be
able to avoid looking directly at the super-bright light).
About Skating With a Flashlight
I have never seen a flashlight
that provides enough light for skating at night.
I have skated with a flashlight a few times, and they do light
up the area in front of me, but by the time I
see obstacles I am too close to avoid colliding with them.
Even if a bright enough flashlight was available, it is easier
to balance on skates when both of your hands are free,
so a helmet headlight is a much better option,
as long as it is not so heavy it throws off your balance.
