Hiking | how to choose a headlamp
Given how essential it is for outings at night, the head torch has found a place in many sporting universes: cycling, hiking/camping, hunting/fishing, running, trail running and many more.
Here, we explain how to choose the head torch that will best suit your needs!
THE CHOICE OF HEAD TORCH DEPENDS ON THE FOLLOWING 3 CRITERIA: RANGE, LIGHTING MODES AND BATTERY LIFE.
Head torches offer different types of lighting: it's up to you to decide on which ones correspond to your sport!
> A power mode for the most intense sports
> An eco mode for increased battery life
> A red mode to see without dazzling those around you
> A flashing mode at the front to be more visible
> A red flashing mode at the back of the head to signal your presence at the same time.
For example, if you are going to play sports in the city or on the road, put safety first by taking a torch with a red flashing mode on the back of the head!
Battery life may vary from 2 hours to 30 hours depending on the modes you use:
the more powerful the lighting, the shorter the battery life will be.
