Interesting, after all that why would you not go for the newer and presumably better new torches from alpkit?
Me Rod ?
If so the simple answer is i don't need one. Gamma is still going strong. i also carry the one TheAdrian mentions, as a back up.
Nah, the o.p .
I've got two gammas, the cybalite one, the petzl e-lite, and a tikka xp2 which is my favourite. Although the gammas are tremendous value for money, I dislike the overhead strap and the rear battery box.in fact the only benefit to them is the red rear light. However,as the new lamps from alpkit appear to be very similar to the xp2,and still very inexpensive, I'd certainly be looking at those rather than the gamma if I was in the o.P's position.
