Head Torches & Headlamps

Light Up the Trail With a Cross Country Headlamp

LED headlamps are used by cross country skiers to light up the trails when there is not enough sunlight to see clearly. Whether it is early morning or late evening, these handsfree head lamps will make your dark journeys easier and safer.

Features that are commonly found on the headgear are elastic head straps, waterproof or water-resistant flashlights, and different light settings for a range of conditions. Most headlamps have a brightness scale that is given in lumens, where the higher the number, the brighter the light will be. The lumen scale in head flashlights is normally 20 - 1500.

How Many Lumens Do I Need for Cross Country Skiing?

The amount of light that is normally necessary for cross country skiing at dusk or nighttime is between 200 - 1000 lumens. Trekking through deep forests at night calls for a higher amount of lumens while skiing along open trails while the sun has just set requires fewer lumens.

If you are going out on adventures in low visibility it is important to wear the correct layers of clothing. To see our collection, check out Cross Country Ski Clothing.
