Top-quality Head Torches

At Ledlenser, we are devoted to creating reliable and durable hiking and trekking head torches that are extremely convenient to use and that provide a solid level of safety and comfort to all the adventure-loving folks.

Here are a few important points to help you get a grip of our collection of headlamps and to make it easier for you to land just the perfect one for your trip:

  • Rechargeable Battery. Our range of head torches is equipped with durable, high-quality batteries that can be recharged. With some of the models, you can go as long as 60 hours on a low-power mode without recharging. This way, you are not only getting a very reliable piece of equipment to help you retain nighttime vision, but you are also making an eco-friendly choice as you won’t be needing battery replacement for a long time.
  • Bright headlamps. We provide headlamp options that, depending on the model, are put out between 10 and 1000 lumens on different power modes. So whether your route lies through a well-lit tourist area, where you would need a minimum light output, or through a total wilderness - we’ve got you covered.
  • Light colours. Factors such as weather conditions, wildlife, your planned activities for the trip - all might require different light colours to suit the situation best. Basic camp activities are easier done with red light, as it wouldn’t wake your sleeping hike mates up, and it is also one of the best lights to help you navigate through foggy and rainy weather. While green light generally goes easier on eyes, its brightness can be tolerated for a longer amount of time. Depending on the possible scenarios of your trek or hike, you can choose a perfect light colour set for your situation.
  • IP class. IP class on the head torches indicates what kind of external factor effects, like water splashed and dust, the headlamp can withstand. Whether your hiking route includes passing a river or fishing or it’s a peaceful camp night - you can choose a head torch with the perfect IP class for your trip.
