It had been a good day, they had climbed the Fiamma but they had also missed the very last cable car. They faced a long dark descent through thick woodland which, without a torch, was a real drag. The day was saved by Charles who pulled out his Gamma; that little torch just lived in his sack and he had been dying for an opportunity to use it. The team filed in behind him and followed the flashing red light off the mountain.

The 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.

Ultimate Headtorch Beam Shoot-out

Outdoors Magic December 2013 - Jon Doran

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.

Jon Doran

[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.
