Perfect for night time hiking and running, and for just finding your way around in the dark when you’re out camping. There are plenty of headlamps around, and a lot of the cheaper ones just aren’t up to scratch, cracking and breaking down with extended wear and use. If you’ve visited Camping Things before, you’ll know that we do all we can do find a balance between quality and value for money. These top 5 best headlamps are simple to use, and mostly employ power saving LEDs.
Pathfinder Headlamp 21 LED
‘Smart use of LEDs, great brightness control.’A close relative of the original Pathfinder, the Pathfinder 21 features 21 individual LED lights to allow you to control the brightness of the headlamp. Compact and powerful, the Pathfinder is a versatile all-rounder that’s good for use as a reading light, and for hiking.
Build quality and fit
Like the original Pathfinder Headlamp, the 21 fits nicely over a helmet, or straight onto your head. It’s more versatile than the original Pathfinder Headlamp as it can be dimmed significantly for use as a reading light, although it’s not really suited for extreme climbing.
Made from quality plastic and elasticated fabric.
The 21-LED system is controlled with a single button the side of the Pathfinder Headlamp. There are four settings: Power saver (1 LED), Bright (8 LED), Ultra-bright (21 LED) and strobe (21 LED flashing.) The head does move up and down, but it’s a pretty simple affair otherwise.
