Alpkit Gamma 2010

£15.00

Alpkit is well-known for providing incredible value for money, and so it is perhaps no surprise that the Gamma’s performance matches that of many headtorches costing twice the price. You get a battery pack at the back of the head and the red LED is fitted here. This can be set on strobe or as a red light. The front ...

Source Widepac 2 Litre

£17.00

Note the price, then note the feature of a rolltop end opening, which makes filling and cleaning this hydration system super-easy.

This selection of settings is ideal for walkers and campers, and prevents over-use of battery power as the boost setting is only available while your finger is on the dedicated button. There is also a ‘power remaining’ indicator that ...

Black Diamond Icon

£50.00

This is a beautifully crafted and wonderfully useful headtorch. The manufacturer claims it has an 80m beam, but what I liked was the variable power settings that add up to six lighting options plus flash. There is a setting here for almost every occasion. With a maximum burn time of 164 hours on a set of AA batteries, you also ...
