Origin

When people are in need of additional light, headlamps can be a good option for when they need to use their hands to handle work or other tasks. However, if technicians are still having to manually adjust the light beam, work ends up getting continuously interrupted. Ledlenser's designers wanted to change that dynamic and create a truly hands-free headlamp.

The headlamp is made of aluminum alloy and PC, while the headband is elastic and designed to be detachable and washable with a rubberized back.
