Description

Show Description

Small enough to forget you're carrying it, but bright enough to be useful. With an updated streamlined housing and improved ergonomics, the second-generation Astro Headlamp makes a good light better. Its infinitely adjustable dimmer lets you dial in the perfect amount of light for reading a book before bed or making a pre-dawn cup of coffee.

  • Mode memory remembers the last setting used and turns the light on in that setting.
  • Smooth dimming feature lets you dial in the perfect brightness.
  • IPX4 waterproofing shrugs off rain, sleet or snow.
  • Revised design provides more intuitive ergonomics while maintaining a compact form factor.
