Head Torches are good because they are hands free. You don’t have to carry a torch or worry about dropping one. They are also lightweight, robust and many now come with powerful long lasting LED torch bulbs.
When buying a Head Torch it’s important to be aware of the beam pattern, light power output and burn time to ensure it suits your needs. The size and weight of the head torch should also be considered; is the torch easily packable, or is it too bulky?
