Kryptonite Retractable Cable Lock
A light on a lock... INGENIOUS!!!!
So great I bought two!!! Locks up just about anything you can wrap the cable around. I use it for my bike cover and to secure light objects left on my bike while I'm away from it. The fact that this lock has a light makes it so awesome. I never have to kick myself for not bringing a flashlight when I need to lock up or remove my cover at night. Third shift bikers you need this lock!!!
Only gripes I have are that the tumblers are plastic, makes it feel a little cheap. Second that the body is kinda large, think of storage garage padlock and you are close to the size.

simple, easy, convenient
I saw another rider in our group use something like this to secure his jacket and helmet to the bike while we had supper. I thought it was a good idea. It fits in a jacket pocket. The combination is easily changed without any special external devices. The cable is long enough to secure a helmet and jacket. Inexpensive and light enough to carry which means it is usable. Yes, the cable is small and could be cut with a medium size cable cutter. Keeps honest people honest and slows down the others.
Would certainly recommend this product. I bought 2.

Good little lock. Easily fits in backpack or jacket pocket. Easy to set-up and use. My only fear... the diameter of the cable and the ease of cutting. I use it to lock up my helmet to my bike and so far it has been very reliable

Does the job
This lock is pretty big, about the size of my palm. But, it does the job. The cable is long enough for me to put it through an arm of my jacket, through my helmet, and around a bar on my bike. The combo is easy to set, and the attached light is a handy feature. The cable is thin but still a good deterrent. The size of it keeps me from a resounding recommendation, but if you would put this in a bag while riding that won't be a concern.

I bought this so I could have a compact lock for my helmet and jacket and it works great. I wish the cable was a little longer but the size is compact and works great.

Great little lock for the money. I don't have any racks on my Victory so the cable system works well to lock my jackets to the handlebars so I don't need to carry it everywhere. Small enough to fit in the jacket pocket. As always, RevZilla service is second to none.

Bigger than you imagine
A little bigger than it appears on the photos, but pretty useful to lock the helmet on the bike, you wouldn't use it to lock your bike thought.
Comes with a little flashlight that can be handy.
