Ultimate Headtorch Beam Shoot-out

04, Dec, 2013

Just how do our Gamma and Manta head torches compare to some of their more expensive rivals? Outdoors Magic runs some simple tests.

[Gamma] The definitive budget torch, the Gamma gives quite a tight beam with reasonable penetration, but not much spread and is a cracking all-rounder at the price, though seriously burned out by the real heavyweights. Has the bonus of a rear-facing red light on the battery box. Brilliant value and very capable at the price.

[Manta] The new challenger to the Alpkit Gamma's crown as budget king comes from Alpkit itself. The single main LED is zoomable and gives a clear and decently bright beam that's arguably better than the Gamma's and weighs very slightly less too.
