Why preppers should have a headlamp in their kit
A headlamp is one of the go-to tools in any survivalist’s or hiker’s camping gear. It’s good to have, even if you don’t plan on it. Even more so, when you do a lot of traveling and if you work in dark environments. Here are some reasons to have a headlamp with you in many situations:
1. Good for extreme weather
A headlamp is a great piece of gear to have when in a less than the hospitable environment. When you are outdoors and in the dark, light is helpful. Even in a situation where visibility is limited, a headlamp can be used to make traveling easier and if it has a strobe function it could help with signaling for help and being easily seen.
2. Useful during a Power Outage
A headlamp can also be useful when a power outage happens. A good example could be doing nightly chores such as cooking or tasks that require a certain level of dexterity.
3. Good for Everyday Uses
If you are doing certain tasks at night or working early in the morning, a headlamp is good to wear. A good specific example is while running or doing any kind of physical work, your hands are free to work without any impedance.
4. Good For Camping
A headlamp can be used as a backup for other light sources. If you choose to carry a headlamp while camping, it will get used regularly, especially when camping in a more primitive way.
5. Convenient while traveling
This is also good for unexpected occurrences, A good example is when you are in the middle of nowhere and your car gets a flat tire, and it needs to be changed, good for you, that you brought a hands-free light source.
A headlamp is good for making any task more efficient and can be used for any type of task no matter how big or small.
When considering a certain brand of headlamp get some that have a long-lasting battery and different light modes such as low light mode or a spotlight mode. The more features the better.
Most headlamps, if not all of them have an adjustable strap for different head sizes.
Overall, the headlamp is most certainly a fantastic option when you go out into nature, and spend a lot of time out in the dark.
