Ecrin Roc

rated 5 of 5 stars It is one of the best helmets for caving, very strong and durable. All caving clubs in Slovenia use it. It is a slightly heavier than new Petzl models of helmets. I recommend. =) I use it for cave exploring and climbing and when I go in mountains. I have on helmet the fixed lamp. I have that helmet a few years and it looks like it will be forever.

rated 3.5 of 5 stars A functional headlamp for weight-conscious backpackers, who don't do a lot of night hiking. This lamp has been my go-to backpacking light for a few years.

Best used for backpacking, camping, hiking in low light conditions. This lamp has a diffuser that can be retracted to create a narrow beam, or lifted for a broad beam. I have used this lamp for six nights in a row and did not have to change the (stock) batteries yet. There is a single button that cycles through all the modes. Single quick press turns on/off the current… Full review
