LIGHTS OUT

This Awesome Headlamp Deal Will Help You Conquer Shorter Days


November 4, 2019 Deals By

Frankly, the fact that it’s starting to get dark by 5 p.m. sucks. For many of us, the hour lost in daylight saving time’s end is enough to make it so that it’s dark by the time we leave work. But we’re not giving in so easily. We’ll be running, bike commuting, grilling and all the rest in spite of the dark, thanks to one nifty piece of gear: the headlamp.

No, headlamps aren’t just for spelunking forays or mountain climbing expeditions. They might be slightly nerdy, but they’re also massively practical. It’s hard to argue with hands-free light, particularly when one of its best iterations, Black Diamond’s Storm Headlamp, is 26 percent off at REI. Not only is the Storm impressively bright, but it also has various modes and a sealed waterproof housing.

It’s one of those things that’s smart to have stashed in a drawer for power outages and just-in-case situations. And with more than a month left to go before the days start lengthening again, whatever you usually do after work, too.
