Although this product is presented as an 'Emergency Headlamp', we can't see why this shouldn't take the place in the lightweight enthusiasts rucksack as the standard night time light.

We've seen it in use and the variety of beams are certainly more than adequate for most night time uses, and in an emergency it would be okay if you were caught out in the dark. It certainly wouldn't be as good as the more powerful head lamps for serious night trekking in poor conditions, but there again if I was doing that, I wouldn't be taking this anyway.

As you can see in the picture, there's a lock on the switch, which is a good start and a variety of settings from low power, when you are hunting for your stuff in the tent, to high power, when you need more obviously.

One of the best features is the single red LED, which keeps your night time vision at a premium and a high power flashing setting for those times when you want to attract attention.

In use the little clip, will hold it on your hat rim, belt, collar, tent loft tabs etc, quite securely and the removable strap supplied certainly keeps it in place on your head. The 360 degree swivel allows it to be tilted and/or sat in the most awkward of surfaces and still point light in the right direction.

Although the hours are not a long as the AAA head lamps, this will last a trip of a few weeks or even longer depending on your use.

All in all, a fantastic little lamp and I'm keeping one in my backpack forever! Oh and it only weighs 27g!

Great little light
Saturday, 1 November 2014  | 

I keep this in the pack that I use for day hikes. The days get rather short in Scotland in October, and last week I miscalculated and had to walk an hour in the dark. This little light really saved the day. I like the red LED as well, for I was surprised to see so many wee beasties about - I doubt I would have seen them using the white LED's.

The service from BPL was really good - much better than I have experienced from other suppliers in the UK.
