Chosen by Beast Runners. If you want just one light for trail running, the Ferei HL40 is simply brilliant.
The Ferei HL headlamp packs 600 lumens of illumination into a tiny, lightweight package. Made in durable aluminium, the weatherproof head unit is thoroughly protected against the elements, and even the battery pack gets an alloy cable gland to keep the rain away from the precision electronics.
The HL40 is amazingly versatile with multiple illumination settings, including a user selectable mid-point, and flashing modes. It also features an adjustable focus, which allows the user to switch from an intense focused beam to wide diffused light, and everything in between. A single band mounted control button gives you access to all the different settings. Intelligent environmental monitoring constantly checks the heat sink temperature and battery voltage to maximise the lifespan of the battery and LED.
