Primus Primelite Race 2010

The Primus Primelite Race has 1 high-output LED; max power 140 lumens; 3 power settings; tilting head; uses 4 AA batteries in belt pack so can be kept warm in winter and not destabilise headtorch; good price for output. But 196g is heavy; 20 hour max burn time is relatively short.

The Primus Primelite Race ideal for walking in the dark, but excessive for inside a tent.
