A very lightweight, compact full featured headlamp. Weighs less than 2 oz (49 gms), variable light levels, 85 lumens, supplementary red light and strobe. Great for those long days that extend into darkness. Easily recharged (no cable necessary).

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Versatile
  • Dependable

Cons

  • Intricate instructions
  • Does not mount easily on helmet or very large heads

This light features separate flood and distance beams, a separate red light, three light levels, and a strobe function, all weighing less than 2 ounces and fitting in a sleek silicone headband.

The light module pops out of the headband for recharging. All you need is a PsB terminal—no charging cable needed

High beam is stated as 85 lumens, good for three hours. My experience suggests that this is a basically accurate statement.

This is the light to tuck in your day hiking pack for those occasions when darkness catches you on the trail. The instructions are a bit complex—especially pay attention to the lock function or otherwise it is too easy to turn the light on inadvertently.

I have been using mine about six months and I am very pleased.

Experience

I have used all sorts of headlamps over the past sixty years, including carbide lamps.

Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $25

Thanks for being the first to review a product from Knog, Hikermor. I've been curious about this Australian brand since I first saw its lights. I noticed they also have a slightly brighter Run version of this headlamp: https://www.trailspace.com/gear/knog/quokka-run/
