Fear of the dark seems to be one of the human instincts, let alone when you can't see your fingers. This seems to be an unimaginable state for us who are used to living in brightly lit cities. If there is no trace of light in the mountains at night, the psychological pressure at this time will become more outstanding. Even the sound of small animals passing through the grass can make us feel terrified.
For hiking or mountaineering enthusiasts, headlamps are one of the essential pieces of equipment. Even during the trip back and forth on the day, headlamps will be prepared in the bag， mainly because there are many uncertain factors in outdoor activities. A day's activities are likely to be prolonged due to getting lost, injuries, etc. When you need to walk at night or even bivouac in the mountains, the role of headlamps is self-evident.
Especially in winter, the daytime is relatively short, and the dark is faster. When the sky darkens, having headlamps when the view is poor will add a lot of sense of security. Not only being able to understand the surrounding environment better to make accurate judgments will also be safer.
Then why use headlamps? Can't flashlights substitute headlamps? A flashlight can be a substitute, but it is not recommended because it is essential to free your hands in the wild. Flashlights are far inferior to headlamps in terms of stability, brightness or water resistance. During the journey, it is impossible to determine whether you need to grab something in your hand. Compared with a flashlight, the headlamp is more suitable for individual use，not only is it light in weight, but it also frees hands and is very convenient to use. You can also save the electricity of the mobile phone flashlight to use GPS positioning applications.
However, everyone should pay attention to the anti-fall performance of the headlamp when choosing. In outdoor sports, it may also slip off due to reasons such as wearing too loose. Otherwise, it is hazardous to have to look for headlamps in the dark. Therefore, see if there is an anti-fall mark when choosing. Only good quality headlamps can provide us with a strong guarantee of safety outdoors.
