"It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness," suggested an ancient Chinese proverb. That thought crossed my mind many a times in the past year both in times of trouble, and in times of joy. In all cases the answer to both safety and newfound adventure was found in the form of a trusty headlamp.
Having become a new father in the past year, my daylight outdoor fun hours were severely compromised. Rather than curse the darkness however, said trusted headlamp lit the candle of post bed-time treks by foot, wheel and ski.
In the multi-sport backcountry enthusiast’s quiver, multi-functional devices that are durable and reliable are critical to safety and maximizing the value of every gear- dollar spent. The Princeton Tec Apex rechargeable headlamp handily fills that need. This ten ounce device proves as adept on hard charging, after-dark mountain bike rides as it is lighting your way from tent to bathroom or hut to hut in the mountains. Due to its relatively large size and weight, it’s not the ideal choice for the weight obsessed backcountry skier. From short evening excursions to multi-day overseas trips, the Princeton Tec Apex is the one-stop shop of headlamps.
