HOPE also make a HID based light, much better than their LED jobby in many ways, brighter and longer burn times. On the down side it does cost a wee bit more and you can't drop it like you can an LED. It looks like it will also fit the head mount adapter shown in the photo so I guess the LED lamp shown is not the brightest head lamp they will do.
If you buy or make any LED based lamp you will get lamp envy when somebody with an HID lamp walks or rides past!
The foot based outdoor kit manufacturers could learn a lot from the cycle industry, you just need to go to a night orienteering event and see how many people use bike lights strapped to helmet mounts to see that there was nothing on the market. Good to see the guys from Lancashire branching out like this. The Silva lamps are over priced and over here!
Will the head band be available for those that already own the bike lights?
