No matter how long the days are, the sunset always seems to creep up on us and catch us unawares. And no matter how organised you are, it always seems to be those evenings that you head torch stays at home on the kitchen table… 

Muon shines 450 lumens of light wherever you point it to let you get on with your adventure after the sun goes down (or before it comes up!). Compact and lightweight, there’s no reason not to keep it in your bag ready for crag escapes or after-work sessions. 

6 lighting modes give you loads of adaptability to your environment and activity, with a main white LED ranging from 20 – 450 lumens, a red LED at 20 lumens for preserving your night vision, and flashing modes for both bulbs. The burn time ranges from 2 hours on max power to 40 hours on low power, making it ideal for shorter adventures (think those post-work crag trips where you always seem to get carried away).

Two large buttons on the top of the torch make it simple to switch between the settings and bulbs. You can use the buttons with your liner gloves on, meaning you don’t need to deglove every time you go from studying your map to scouting out the next bit of trail. The light unit can be tilted down for navigation, reading in your tent, or not blinding your mates round the campfire.

Muon has a water resistance rating of IP64, so it can sustain showers (but not submersion). It takes 3 x AAA batteries and is compatible with good quality alkaline, NiMh rechargeable or NiCd rechargeable batteries.
