If you've spent any time outside at night, you'll appreciate anything hands-free. I found this out during my son's Scouting days at one of the fall campouts while attempting to wash the dinner dishes in complete darkness. Try to hold a flashlight in your armpit while carefully cleaning a cast-iron skillet and you'll quickly appreciate a light you don't need to keep your hands on.

The LED Lenser SEO5 Headlamp solves this dilemma with an adjustable cloth headband. Captured ends (this is important, as the loose strap won't hang down in your eyes!) and a single strap mean it can go on over a hat or cap, and the light has both high (180 lumens) and low (20 lumens) settings. The SEO5 is water-resistant, runs on three AAA batteries and has a run time of 7 hours on high and 25 hours on low.

The press of a button activates the unit on high, and pressing the button a second time changes output to the low setting. A third application and the unit strobes, useful for emergency situations. Press and hold the button for more than two seconds and the unit switches to a red light. A second press once red light has been turned on brings a red strobe.

All in all, it's a handy unit that provides plenty of illumination for whatever task you may have at hand. Best of all, the MSRP is only $55, meaning this utility won't put a cramp in your outdoor activity budget.
