Trail rate the Alpkit Gamma Best Value headtorch
Graham Thompson rates the Alpkit Gamma as best value compared to it's rivals in the Feb. 2012 edition of Trail Magazine.
For £13 you should not be expecting much; but with the Alpkit Gamma you are getting far better performance than expected, and for general walking and camping it is an able product.

Ultimate Headtorch Beam Shoot-out
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.

Trail magazine review the Gamma
Trail magazine's technical editor Graham Thompson includes the Gamma in this years LED head torch round up.
Alpkit is well-known for providing incredible value for money, and so it is perhaps no surprise that the Gamma’s performance matches that of many headtorches costing twice the price.
