Whether you prefer to rise at dawn to encounter game early in the morning, or wait for twilight to bring your hunt home, a powerful hunting headlamp will keep your hands free and ready for anything. Carry gear, move stray branches from your path, or dig through your pack with ease. We have shortlisted three LED headlamps for hunting that will be a great asset on your next trip.
What are the Best LED Headlamps for Hunting?
The best LED headlamps for hunting are the Fenix HM61R, HM65R-T, and HM50R V2.0. All of these rechargeable LED headlamps are built to be a reliable and powerful addition to your hunting gear.
Fenix HM61R Rechargeable Headlamp
Things change quickly in nature, so we designed a multipurpose hunting headlamp that adapts to any situation where you might need hands-free lighting. In addition to being a powerful headlamp, the Fenix HM61R can be used as a right-angle detachable flashlight when taken off its headband. The flashlight also includes a magnetic base and belt clip so you can have a hands-free light even when it’s not attached to the headband.
With eight different lighting modes, including a red light, to choose from, the HM61R puts brightness control in your hands. A large switch on the side of the headlamp makes it easy to change modes, even with gloves on. The flashlight is powered by an effective 18650 battery, which can last up to 300 hours on Eco mode. A power-level indicator on the battery alerts you when it’s time to recharge. An intelligent memory circuit remembers the last brightness level you used so you can have the same hands-free lighting without needing to make adjustments. IP68 rated waterproof and dustproof, and made of quality aluminum, this LED headlamp for hunting is ready to weather the elements.
