Modern front-mounted headtorches are neat and lightweight, yet pack enough power for most needs. Here we look in depth at five alternatives across the price spectrum.
Adding to the expanding range of lighting offerings, Alpkit introduce their most powerful headtorch yet. At 190 lumens the Arc runs on 2 AA batteries and features a neat quick change battery pack for on the go.
Combining some of the best features of top selling headtorches; the Arc emits up to 150 m of 190 lumen light. Whilst the rear battery pack means it is well balanced on the head, it also features a quick-change battery pack. A simple twist lock and release button ejects the battery pack which can be immediately swapped with a ready loaded spare battery pack, massively reducing the fumble factor of spare batteries. This also means your stopping time is kept to a minimum and you can go for longer. Particularly handy for night races or outrunning a pack of hungry wolves.
