Shop with confidence. If it’s not working out, you can return it (consumables, electronics, undergarments and swimwear excluded).
Really. If it's not up to snuff after you use it (a couple times) you can still bring it back. It lasts longer than 30 days, but not forever. We'll be fair about it.


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
