A great headlamp must be able to survive the harsh trekking conditions that we usually deal with. It must be able to last the rigours of everyday use for a prolonged period. Quechua Head Torch – 80 Lumens is made for hiking and for lighting up your way. This is a versatile, easy to use and comfortable headlamp. Its soft cover protects it from shocks and water. Works on two AAA batteries. Extra batteries would be supplied with this torch.
While most headlamps have fancy straps, the buckles and elastic are often a cause for concern. But Quechua Head Torch – 80 Lumens has head-straps that provide additional stability. It can be worn over a balaclava or a woollen cap easily.
Headlamp Light Output
This is perhaps the most important aspect of a headlamp. Most headlamps have poor light output. The light looks fine when you check it at the store, but on a trek, you find it is not bright enough. Some headlamps are bright but they don’t throw light too far.
Quechua Head Torch – 80 Lumens delivers 80 lumens of light, which provide enough light to see over a distance of 60 meters(200 feet).
So you can use it not only while having your dinner, attending to nature’s call at night but also for night trekking. They have been successfully tested on moderate treks like Har Ki Doon – Kedarkantha, medium difficulty treks like Roopkund-Goechala(summit trek starts at night 3 am) and on difficult treks like Stok Kangri.
Different Light Modes
There are 3 lighting modes: Red (flash for emergency), standard white, high beam white
The red light is used because it does not shrink your pupils, which makes a big difference in seeing things beyond the zone of light. With a white light, trekkers often trip on the guy wires of a tent or fail to see movement outside the white light zone. Use the red light if you are picking up your dinner, washing your plates or attending natures call at night. Red light also saves an enormous amount of battery.
Use standard white when you are out of your tent in the dark. Use it for your night adventure strolls around your campsite.
High Beam White
Use while you are trekking at night for higher clarity.
Works on two AAA batteries. Extra batteries would be supplied with this torch.
Water & Snow Resistance
It has been tested in rains and snow and has been proved to be resistant to them. Its rubber body does not allow rainwater to seep into the electrical components
