For our riding holidays that involve camping you can’t leave home without a good, LED head torch. This hands-free light source is paramount in your riding kit and I keep my head torch in close proximity as soon as the sun starts to slump. A head torch will come in handy for reading your book at night, going to the toilet (so you can spotlight wild animals), walking to the dinner tent – practically anything.
Now in terms of the best head torch to buy if you don’t have one lurking in your cupboard, I would suggest a battery, multi LED array head torch – rather than a rechargeable or wind-up head torch. You don’t need anything too fancy pants nor technical, I like the head torch above with the adjustable light and head strap.
