I need to buy a head torch as I have some winter 10k races through forests and hillsides coming up. I will also use it to run 10 miles into and 10 miles out of work alongside a road.
I have read various reviews and posts regarding the above and just can't make up my mind which one to go for. Each has pros and cons which I see as:
German made (possible pro), lighter weight (approx. 155g), infinite number of lighting levels, very bright 170 lumen max, no 3rd strap to head band (my biggest worry is it slipping down my head when running), not sure how waterproof it is (not a deal breaker)
Waterproof, ridiculous max of 225 lumen, heavier weight (approx. 230g) due to larger AA batteries, does have a 3rd head strap so should be stable.
I have ruled out the Petzl Myo XP on the grounds the above torches are similar prices but offer superior levels of light.
Anyone want to chip in and help me with my dilema?
