Best Headlamp for GORUCK

If you’re doing a GORUCK event, you’re going to need a headlamp. If you don’t have a headlamp, how else are you going to blind your fellow teammates when you talk to them at 2 AM?

So, what headlamp is the best?

Well, I’ve let my opinion be known on the best headlamp, but if for some reason you want a second opinion we asked our readers to weigh in on the subject.   In our early 2017 “Best of Rucking” survey, here’s what our readers had to say.

#1 Black Diamond

Apparently, the readers have not taken my headlamp advice. Instead, they have flocked to the Black Diamond Spot and Storm in droves. It could be that the main reason these get some many votes is because these two headlamps are the ones for sale on In fact, the Spot and Storm were the runaway winner of this poll with other lamps not even coming close. So, if you want to follow the masses, the Storm and Spot is the way to go.

#2 Any Cheap One

The second most voted for headlamp was “any cheap one.” It would seem that there are a number of ruckers that have decided that their headlamp is most likely going to get broken or lost, so why invest $40+/- on it. If you’re looking for a headlamp for GORUCK, then save the coin and just pick up a cheap one online.

#3 Petzl

While most of the Petzl voters weren’t helpful enough to write in the model, Tikkana did pop up a few times. So, I’ll just assume that’s the one that the voters intended for you to buy.
