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?
No matter what you're doing at night, you can do it better with both hands free! A head torch just lights up the area where you're looking. The new LED models are bright enough for walking or close working and the batteries last for ages. They're also really lightweight. The models with conventional bulbs can be brighter and throw a more focussed beam so they're good for riding or activities where you need to see a bit further.
