Princeton Tec Vizz Headlamp

While Princeton Tec's best lights of the 1970s were made for underwater use, one of its signature models out now is made for adventurers hoofing it on land. "The Vizz combines a bunch of technologies we've developed in-house, including everything from how it efficiently dissipates heat, to the ability to cycle through every mode we've ever done," says Stephens (that includes a high powered 150-lumen long throw spot, dimmable flood beam, and red LEDs for close range use). Three AAA batteries power it for up to 150 hours, and a compact size and weight of 92 grams make it supremely packable. When worst comes to worst: a waterproof rating of IPX7 allows the American-made Vizz to keep the trail lit even in torrential rain. [$50; princetontec.com]
