    Re: Trail Runners, Fastpackers and Urban Runners please share! Sorry for more delay than I intended, but here's my attempt at a contribution to this excellent and useful thread.

    Re: Trail Runners, Fastpackers and Urban Runners please share! I am an ultra-distance trail runner and I just finished (Saturday) a successful completion of the SCAR (Smokie Challenge Adventure Race) - 75 miles of the Appalachian Trail through the Smokie Mountain National Park. Like many...

    Skilhunt H03 Headlamp Mods for Waist Light

    Re: 18650 battery pack assistance needed. Depends on what you mean by "wet". I purchased two of these to use for my shorter runs -- I have no qualms with them in the rain, but wouldn't want be ducking through sumps in caves with them.

    Are there other headlamps that ratchet up/down like the Fenix HL55/HL60?

    I've owned any number of Black Diamond and Princeton headlamps all (most?) of which ratcheted. JB

    Looking for a light that will my specifications

    You can regularly find the Skilhunt H03 variants on sale online for around 30 US bucks. I bought 2 of the TIR versions. Good so far. JB

    Headlamp Porn (Night Orienteering)

    NICE!! Watching that might help some understand why off-trail and technical running benefits from more than the usual 160 lumens that road runners and backpackers do so well with. It was amazing to see some of the shots of those headlamps which were so big they weren't supported by mere...

    Skilhunt H03 Headlamp Mods for Waist Light

    Re: 18650 battery pack assistance needed. Thanks for the input xcandrew. Excellent points. I have many years of design experience in the motorsports fields where vibration and fatigue are primary reasons for failure. The fewer cables and connections, the fewer failure points -- all true...

    18650 battery pack assistance needed. (I posted this over in the 'Batteries Included' forum and got zero response to these questions. I'm posting here just in case someone here has the answers - thanks) ____________________________________________ Hi folks, I could use some basic 18650...

    Skilhunt H03 Headlamp Mods for Waist Light

    Re: Skilhunt H03nw arrived Yeah -- I was trying to figure out how heat transfer would work if I moved the LED forwards. JB

    Skilhunt H03 Headlamp Mods for Waist Light

    Re: Skilhunt H03nw arrived Pulled the TIR lens out of the H03 to preview what a 'mule' version would look like (still haven't received clear lenses). Two issues: 1: The LED board is held in place near the rear of the cavity via the TIR lens. The clear lens is of course not going to hold it...

    Skilhunt H03 Headlamp Mods for Waist Light

    Re: Skilhunt H03nw arrived I received the short tubes today so I went to work pulling the Skilhunts apart. Even though the tube/head interface was sealed with red Loctite, the combo of a heatgun and a tape covered crescent wrench had them separated in no time. I have not rearranged the O...

    Cool little "How It's Made" Petzl video

    As a climber, backpacker and runner, I have used Petzl headlamps extensively for approaching 40 years now. Never had a single quality issue. JB

    Skilhunt H03 Headlamp Mods for Waist Light

    Re: Skilhunt H03nw arrived I suspect that is correct. I haven't yet received my clear lenses so I don't yet know what the 'muled' out downward angled light will look like on the different settings. I'm hoping it can run turned down a bit. Good to know. I have nothing to compare it to...

    Different power settings but identical run-times??

    Yes, and as a scientist I can assure you the very first step in science when faced with a claim is to test and see if the claim is true. Only then is further investigation warranted. This is a "faith" position, not a scientific position. If you truly want a scientific answer, there are no...
