Headlamps have become quite popular, and for good reason. They offer a hands-free light source that can be aimed anywhere you are looking. I recently stumbled upon this alternative to the headlamp, the Lapel Torch from Snow Peak. It consists of a light, cable and power supply. The light can be quickly mounted via two small magnets—think collar, pocket, backpack webbing and so forth—and its unique curved “ball joint” design allows the light to be rotated and aimed where you need it. The power supply can be placed into a nearby pocket or pouch or attached via clip. Its brightness modes include high, low, variable and emergency strobe. The Lapel Torch runs on 3 AA batteries, either standard or rechargeable. Price is $59.95. The Snow Peak site can illuminate you with more info.
