Every headlamp is different and each is designed for a different purpose. Therefore many of the features vary from headlamp to headlamp. This could be the lumens they feature, the distance they emit light over or the width of beam they possess. Knowing what you are going to use your headlamp for is important and will allow you to buy a headlamp that suits your needs. If you are going running at night, you will need something fairly powerful yet also light that won’t hinder your running performance. If you are climbing or walking then weight may not be as important. Instead, having a powerful light that can allow you to get a safe footing may be your chief concern. Each user has their own needs and these have to be matched against the features of the headlamps that are in contention.
Choosing your next headlamp can be a tricky decision so we have put together a couple of our favourite suggestions to help you pick the best one for you. The Silva Trail Runner headlamp is an ultra light trail running headlamp which is designed to ensure you suffer minimal adverse effects when running in the hills once the light starts to dim. It has 100 lumens and a 50m light range, making it a great choice for those who want a decent headlamp at a reasonable price. The Silva Runner Headlamp is a good quality upper price range headlamp giving off 550 lumens and a 90m range. Excellent for those dark and wooded areas.
