the right equipment!

Discover our wide selection of head torches from the biggest brands and go out well equipped for your trail-running, hiking, camping, cycling, ski touring, bivouac or even mountaineering sessions under the starry sky!

Head torch: the outdoor essential

A head torch is an essential accessory to bring along when you go hiking or climbing in the mountains, whether it's for safety or visibility. On the same scale as torches or pocket torches and lanterns; head torches are among the must-have accessories for all outdoor sports enthusiasts. This is especially true in the autumn, when temperatures still allow for many outdoor activities but the days become shorter.

Are you planning to leave before dawn for your next mountaineering expedition?
Do you plan to continue climbing even under the stars?

It's time to find a powerful head torch that is suitable for your practice!

Trail head torches: a wide choice for running

Running at night in the wilderness automatically requires the use of a good trail head torch. For trail running, a head torch with sufficient power and optimal support is required. A conventional head torch will struggle to stay on your head because it will not be designed to withstand the long strides and powerful impacts encountered during the trail. A trail head torch with an adjustable, washable and reflective headband offers unique comfort.

If you are looking for trail head torches that are perfect for accompanying you on your mountain runs, the IKO Core from Petzl or the H7R Core from Ledlenser will be perfect for you!

Find your future head torch at the best price available on Snowleader among the biggest brands and enjoy fast delivery with attractive shipping costs!

Head torch VS torch

There are different ways ensure light at night: head torches, torches... Why choose a head torch rather than another type of outdoor lighting? In fact, they are useful for camping activities, but head torches are essential for sports. Whether your outing is a hike, a trek, a late jog or a bike ride, a head torch is much more practical than any of its counterparts. Unlike the torch, the head torch allows you to keep your hands free for greater agility and mobility at night.

Great for saving space, the LED head torch is compact, powerful and weighs almost nothing. Another big advantage over torches or lanterns. The days of big headlights that hurt the forehead are over! Advances in miniaturization mean that don't have to choose between lightness and power. Thanks to LED technology, head torches are compact and some are now the size of a walnut!

In addition to outdoor sports, camping life is not forgotten.. When camping, cooking without a head torch can quickly become a trial by fire. The torch is only useful to clearly direct the beam without making you turn your head in all directions. Of course, the head torch is also a must-have for readers. For reading in your tent, an easy-to-use and versatile reading head torch such as the Tikka from Petzl allows you to get on with your book even after dark.

The different types of head torches

Each head torch has its own specific features and is designed for a particular purpose. Among the powerful and rechargeable head torches offered by Snowleader, you can choose between the latest generation head torches such as the Storm 400 head torch Graphite from Black Diamond or the new Petzl products!

The classic models are light, easy to use and have a compact design: this is the case of the Tikka or Tikkina head torches from Petzl. Let's not forget the most famous ultra light and compact model from Petzl: the Bindi head torch.

Snowleader selects the best products and accessories for your outdoor activities. Discover all of our outdoor equipment.

USB rechargeable head torches: the benefits

A USB rechargeable head torch offers benefits that batteries cannot

- Easy to charge.

- Portable chargers and external batteries (Petzl Accu 2 rechargeable battery or Powercase from Ledlenser), great for an ultra trail!

- Waterproofing: USB rechargeable head torches are usually completely waterproof, unlike battery-powered models. A detail that is particularly appreciated by divers and fishing enthusiasts.

- High power

- Numerous lighting modes, such as red light for discretion, low power flashing mode and boost mode.

- Resistance to extreme temperatures. Lithium-ion battery-powered head torches can withstand particularly extreme conditions.

The Nao and Nao+ from Petzl offer impressive light thanks to their different lighting modes and long autonomy, making them powerful, light and very high quality rechargeable head torches.

Everything you need to know about lighting

You want your lamp to give you great light, which is measured by two main things: lumens and beam.

Lumens

Lumens are the power of the light. Depending on your practice, you will have to adjust the number of lumens. Note that you already have very good lighting with 200 lumens and that some ultra powerful head torches offer 900 to 1000 lumens. This is the case, for example, with the Swift RL from Petzl.

The light beam

The light beam can be wide, mixed, focused, long, medium, short... It depends on the LEDs and the lamp technology. The more consistent it is, the less strain it will put on your eyes. The beam influences the range and thus the distance visible with your light.

The different lighting modes that can be configured on your lamp will allow you to adjust the style of light, for proximity, movement, distant vision for example... But also for the discretion of your beam, notably via its colour which can be white, blue, red or green.

Charging and battery life

The latest generation of headlamps available on the market today all offer a very good battery life. The battery life of your head torch is displayed on the Snowleader product pages. This varies according to the settings and the light intensity used. Some models have a maximum autonomy of 10 hours, while others go up to 200 hours. The Actik Core model from Petzl is a good option for long-range needs as it can last up to 160 hours.

There are two options for charging your lighting device:

- the battery, rechargeable or not. The battery allows you, if you have the foresight, to leave without access to electricity for several days without worrying about recharging your head torch.

- rechargeable battery via USB port. Lithium-ion batteries can withstand extreme conditions and are very light.
