Went self Christmas shopping yesterday, I've been a good boy and I thought I deserved it. My headlamp had died recently and I was left only with my 5 year old first generation tikka which is great for hiking and snowshoeing but when it comes to skiing, more so skate skiing, its a little weak on compensating vision for balance.
24 hour race by the time it gets dark I pretty much have the course memorized that I swear I could ride it blind, slippery ground on long skinny sticks I want to see everything so a quick stop at one of my favorite local outdoor stores and out I came with the newest caveman torch. This thing is awesome.
I've had a couple of the Myo's before and they worked awesome putting out about a 100 lumens on the brightest setting. Well the newest one is at 140 lumens. How bright is that? Bright that is all I can say. Physical size and weight haven't changed and there are a few new options that you can do with this one. I'll pretty much just turn it on and turn it off.
Tonight will be the test, planning on a couple hours of skiing after work today. At least I can't blame any falls on not seeing what I'm about to land on. It will be another play time on the classics.
