This headlamp is higher rated than any other headlamp in the same category, while also being one of the most lightweight on the market. An added bonus is the rechargeable battery option that doesn't compromising battery life or brightness. Throw it in your bag and you won't even notice it's there until you need it – and without a doubt you will need it at some point.
