Show Description

Like a true Canadian, this headlamp is built for the cold. At 320 lumens those skin tracks you’re following will glow like the yellow brick road. As night settles and the air gets colder, detach the battery housing and put it in your pocket to keep the batteries warm and the light flowing.

  • 1 QuadPower LED spotlight, 2 SinglePower white LEDs.
  • Detachable battery pack can be worn on the headband or put in your pocket to keep the batteries warm.
  • Settings include full strength proximity mode and distance mode, dimming, strobe, red night vision and lock mode.
  • 3-level power meter shows remaining battery life for 3 seconds after turning on the headlamp.
  • Red night-vision mode has separately controlled proximity and strobe settings so you don’t need to cycle through white lights to get the red lights.
