At Ledlenser, we are devoted to creating reliable and durable hiking and trekking headlamps that are easy to use, all while providing a solid level of safety and comfort to all adventure loving folks.
Here are a few important points to help you understand our collection of headlamps better and to make it easier for you to land the perfect one for your trip:
- Rechargeable Battery. Our range of headlamps are equipped with durable, high-quality batteries that can be recharged. With some of the models, you can go as long as 60 hours on a low-power mode without recharging. This way, not only are you getting a very reliable piece of equipment that will help you retain nighttime vision, but you are also making an eco-friendly choice as you won’t be needing battery replacements for a long time.
- Bright headlamps. We provide headlamp options that, depending on model, put out between 10 to 1000 lumens on different power modes. So whether your route lies through a well lit tourist area where you would need a minimum light output, or in the outback – we have got you covered.
- Light colors. Factors such as weather conditions, wildlife and your planned activities for the trip – they all might require different light colors to suit your situation best. Basic camp activities are easier done with red light, as it would not wake your sleeping hike mates up, and is also one of the best lights to help you navigate through foggy and rainy weather. Green light on the other hand generally goes easier on eyes, as its brightness can be tolerated for a longer amount of time. Depending on the potential scenarios of your trek or hike, you can find a perfect light color set for your situation with Ledlenser.
- IP class. IP class on the headlamps indicates what kind of external factor effects like water splashed and dust, the headlamp can withstand. Whether your hiking route includes passing a river, fishing or just a peaceful camp night – you can choose a Ledlenser headlamp with the perfect IP class for your trip.

Frequently Asked Questions
How many lumens for hiking headlamps?
Typically 400 lumens and above is bright enough for a hiking headlamp, but this can also be affected by the season and time of year. For general hiking in mild weather, 400 lumens will be sufficient. If you are undertaking a hike in extreme weather or Winter, you can opt for a slightly brighter headlamp.
What is the best headlamp for hiking?
The best headlamp for hiking is the Ledlenser MH Series, as this range of headlamps have a front battery pack and are light and compact for ease of wear over an extended period of time. The MH range also gives you the option to remove the light from the headlamp so that you can use the light as a handheld, with clip options if needed. The versatility of the MH Series makes this collection of headlamps a must-have for hiking.
Which headlamp color is best for hiking at night?
A headlamp with a reflective band is great for hiking as it allows you to be seen by other hikers and vehicles, giving you an added level of safety and visibility especially if you are lost or injured. In regards to the light color, white light would be the first choice for hikers, however red-light is useful for retaining night vision after dark.
With the best of both worlds, the Ledlenser H7R Signature is a great choice for hiking.
Do I need a headlamp when hiking?
Yes, a headlamp is an essential piece of gear when hiking. If you are embarking on a long hike in the dark, it is extremely important to have something that illuminates your path. Not only for lighting the way, a headlamp will be very useful in emergency situations where you are lost or injured, therefore we would highly recommend you to invest in a headlamp that has light signaling fetures such as SOS signalling and blink mode to draw attention to you should you ever need assistance.
Why are headlamps important when hiking?
Headlamps are one of the most important pieces of gear to take when hiking. Hikes can often lead well into the night, and multi-day hikes will require a good, long-lasting quality headlamp to illuminate the trail and your campsite.
