Balanced 88 lumen head torch for night running with white, red and green LEDs. Gamma has a rear battery pack with a rear red caution light
Gamma is all about minimal interference, housing the batteries in a separate compartment keeps both the lamp unit and the battery pack both compact and light. You can forget about it whilst it sits in perfect balance on your head as you get on with enjoying the trail.
Especially well suited to walkers and trail runners we mounted a red LED on the rear of the battery pack to keep you safe on those dark country lanes.

Good........but not great quality
I'm on my third one now. The light is great in that it is one of the few budget head torches with a true white light. It's bright and clear and easy to use, the only downside is the build quality, each of the ones I have owned the lid has snapped at the battery compartment on changing batteries. Not a great design it has to be said........ But then, at this price it is what it is !
I originally bought this for running and it works great, gives a great spread of light and at the speed i run doesn't really slow me down from what i would be running in daylight. However since purchasing it i have found the battery life great as i have been using it for many hours of DIY and for work. I shall be purchasing another new one for the sole purpose of running again now the nights are drawing in.
Bought 2 of these a few years ago....great torches..only problem is you need to take care with the battery cover lugs...but I still love them!
Life savingly good
Awesome head torch, multi light choices help when visibility is at zero cant thank this torch enough i'd recommend it to anyone and everyone, great battery life too.
Gamma was my first Alpkit purchase, and has proved great - the red LED was ideal for backstage work in amateur dramatics, and the lower power main LED excellent for almost everything else. Saved our skins on a winter walk that ran late, and found us on Salisbury Plain main roads with no other lighting...
Lugs on battery box are a weakness, but your service team are LEGEND!
My gamma headtorch is the envy of all my friends. I am out in the north of sweden where it's cold and dark. My friends all have bought 'cheap' headtorches from here (£20ish) and my gamma is by far the best. It's been through snow, rain and -20degree temperatures and hasn't missed a beat. I've been cycling, running, building igloos, and have thrown it in my bag at the end of the day. I can't recommend it enough. 3 of my friends have already ordered their own. As for the lugs, on all 4 head torches they are 100%
“Ordered two of these lights just before Christmas, unfortunately one of them arrived damaged in the post. Couple of e-mails later to the friendly guys at Alpkit, and all was resolved very quickly. No fuss, no bother, just great, easy going, old fashioned friendly service. Can't ask for more than that. Thanks a lot guys!”
Gamma head torch and customer service
“I bought a Gamma a while ago, it developed a problem with the front switch, I contacted Alpkit and they said return it and they would fix or replace it with an ex demo unit. They were true to their word and with a very quick turn around, absolutely faultless service. Cheers Jay lad, nice one ”
Gamma Head torch
I purchased five of these torches for the family, after less than 12 months four had failed. Not the the sort of quality you expect from Alpkit.
Gamma - tweak?
“Following lug failure, I've just fitted my Gamma with the battery pack you kindly sent - it's as good as new! Thanks a heap. It's been my go-to head torch for years, including those long winter Munro days.
However ... I do think the design needs to be tweaked - those tiny lugs on the case break easily”
