We’ve seen headlamps and we’ve seen hanging lanterns, but worthy combinations of the two? Not as many. Usually because of cumbersome operation. The Snow Peak SnowMiner ($50) headlamp solves that problem through its patent pending design, which involves a unique lens that quickly removes to transform the headlamp into a wide, 180 degree ambient light source. As you’d expect from Snow Peak, the entire piece of gear is constructed of high quality materials like high-modulus nylon fiber and touts handy features including a 3-mode light operation, glove-friendly switch and up to 140 hours of operation on just 3 AAA batteries — another nice touch.
