Couple of weeks ago I went out for a early morning run and took a nasty tumble in the dark.
So I decided to look at getting a light weight head touch for running.
This was the 4th or 5th I tried as the others were either too heavy or the light was very strong.
This one was excellent, light (well I think so) weight, powerful beam (in fact has 3 strengths of light) as well as a flashing mode.
I've used this whilst running on roads, pavements and trails at night and does the trick.
Well worth spending the extra money and avoid falling flat on your face.
Great for running, light weight, brilliantly bright. Exceeded my expectations!
convenient and comfortable. Don't require loads of spare batteries now!
Needed a head torch as soon will be doing first Trail half marathon run at night through woods. Wanted a torch that was bright enough, light weight, would last the race and would not break the bank. Purchased the 710 as it boasts 300 lumens. The torch did not disappoint! It is exactly what I needed. I am now finding myself running late at night just so I can use it. I would highly recommend this torch and would go as far as saying it is as good as the likes of Led Lenser, Petzl - worth every penny!
I bought this because I didn't fancy the price point of a Petzl alternative. I have to say that I find the build quality excellent, and the variety of settings appropriate, with the maximum setting truly fantastic for trail running. My only observation and reason for 4 rather than 5 stars is that despite a bit of adjustment, the back slides down my head a bit - I can stop it by tightening the strap but it is uncomfortable to do this over long distances. In terms of product enhancement, perhaps a more sticky compound on the red rubber pads would help?
Fantastic item, I use this for running and mtbiking. Great brightness coupled with superb battery performance makes this a winner.
Excellent value. Really good light, nice and bright, optional brightness settings are great when in areas with street lamps etc.. Comfortable on the head and charge lasts better than expected.
