/ new head torch for fell running from a real shop today
I suspect the LED Lenser TobyA mentioned is the H7 or H7r which is really good. I fondled an SE07 at the weekend though, and the SE range is a bit lighter than the H range. If buying now, I suspect I'd go for an SE.
Cracking torch, not used it for running but am very impressed with it for MRT/ML stuff I've done.
I've got an H7R which is excellent (same as the H7 but with rechargable batteries), weight has never been a problem. The se07 only has 2 power options, low or high, for that reason I'd prefer the H7 which has a continuous scale between the two - I normally have mine set about half way.
Myo RXP FTW
I was out on night nav exercise last-night and reckon the Petzl Myo RXP wins hands-down! The wide filter works really well, not only for a walking/working area but for reducing glare when looking at the map etc. It also seemed to have the longest spot beam.
One of the reasons I went for it was the overhead strap, and I like the battery pack on the back. Speaking of which, the batteries are lasting really well in it. I have it programmed to come on at the lowest setting first, and then scroll up through to the highest, as this saves battery and also saves you blinding your tent mate when you only need 15 lumens!.
Very pleased with mine anyway :)
