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.

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”
Great headtorch at a great price
First run with the headtorch tonight on the beach - very pleased with it - good clear light, comfy to wear and stayed in place. Great piece of kit. Really impressed by the customer service too - speedy delivery and good communication.
All In all this is one of my absolute BEST purchases.
"I got a couple of these, oh, must be easily ten years ago. I got the 2nd one because the first was so good.
Main beam is fiercely bright with a massive range and good focus, but it's made a bit more short range usable by having a low setting. Then for reading etc, the little let's are superb, WITH a choice of red and green, which helps maintain night vision.
Separate battery pack helps with battery life and the fact that there are 3 triple A's in it.
There IS a weak point which is the latch on the battery pack lid is a bit fragile, but that's easily rectified with a cleverly applied cable tie.
All In all this is one of my absolute BEST purchases. 5 stars."
