Ultralight Backpacking Headlamp Built into Cap

LED CapI love gadgets. The latest, from a newspaper clipping my wife dropped on my desk, is a cap with four LED lights built in (sample at left has only two, but the Amazon.com version below has four). One of the reasons I became a ultralight backpacker, besides the weight reduction, was the elimination of stuff from my backpack. It would take many paragraphs to describe all the items I carried when I first started backpacking in 1998. Let me assure you, you can put huge amounts in a 5,800 cubic inch, 7.5 pound Dana Design Terraplane: 60 pounds or more, in fact. As they say, less is more.  Be light. Be safe. Be one with the pack.

  1. Another great way to achieve this if you have a Photon flashlight: if you attach velcro to the Photon and velcro to the brim of your hat, you can attach the Photon to the brim of the hat — like a headlamp but much much lighter.
