Small weight, small size, big brightness. Smaller and lighter than most headlamps, yet even brighter, the HM50R is a worth a look. With 4 modes that take you from 4 lumens to 500, you get a light that works around camp, on pre-dawn trail runs or in dark Northern Thailand caves. USB charging makes it easy to top up the included 16340 battery. It's also compatible with CR123 batteries for better cold-weather performance.
