Nitecore NU30 Headlamp
If brightness is at the top of your list of desired headlamp characteristics, the Nitecore NU30 won’t disappoint — hell, one look at the thing and you know it’s serious before even turning it on. When you do, its center-mounted Cree XP-G2 LED outputs up to 400 lumens, lighting the way up to 400 feet ahead. For when that’s overkill two auxiliary white LEDs function for close-range floodlighting and, alternately, two red LEDs ensure your night vision is maintained. Other features include 60 degrees of tilt, IP67 dust and water resistance, and surprisingly good battery life of up to 330 hours on lower brightness settings.
