This wiki has been updated 11 times since it was first published in January of 2019. If you hunt or fish at night, you need a reliable headlamp to illuminate your way and surroundings while leaving your hands free for other things, such as reloading your weapon, building a fire, or attaching bait to a hook. Plus they are compact enough for easy transport without taking up much pack space. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

January 28, 2019:

In order to be suitable for hunting, a headlamp has to exhibit a few properties. They need to be durable enough to withstand a lot of abuse and weatherproof, so a little rain won't cause them to malfunction. They should also offer a variety of lighting modes, from dim illumination to super bright spotlights.

A wandering writer who spends as much time on the road as in front of a laptop screen, Brett can either be found hacking away furiously at the keyboard or, perhaps, enjoying a whiskey and coke on some exotic beach, sometimes both simultaneously, usually with a four-legged companion by his side. He has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs. He has an odd obsession for playing with the latest gadgets and working on motorcycles and old Jeeps. His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
