Just some thoughts here
My suggestions are based upon a few things.
a) Get or use your reflective vest. Home depot has some very nice ones with 360 reflective and iin mesh so very usable for the bike.
B) I use a Head lamp on my long night rides which means 30-65 miles in the dark. REI, EMS sell good units in the $20-40 range. My use is really to see street signs and for my cue sheet. Adjustable tilt and 3-4 modes (blinking is nice) will take care of you.
Note: that the reflective vest will work BEST in snow, rain or just plain old darkness from 1/8 -1/2 mile away based on weather conditions. Much better than a head lamp.
Remember that you will see a car coming way before they will see you.
On the back, use a flashing light clipped to your collar, hood or strap to cap etc. You'll figure it out, even a sweat band on the outside of your cap or hood.
Keep it simple, but the reltor vest works like a charm.

If we get any snow here, it's going to be safer for me if I get the bike of the streets and hike in the grass. Don't want to have to carry/hold a flashlight for the 2-3 mile hike home after work. Also will come in handy on those days that I walk due to bike being down for repairs.
Might be something for the touring crowd who camp, but figured I'd post here first.
