The S3 rechargeable is designed for the outdoors and to match everything that mother nature can throw at it.
Simon James of Mountan Goat Trails is a trail running and outdoor guide from the United Kingdom. With a lot of different jobs all around the world, Simon was the perfect man to really put the S3 rechargeable to the test.
We send him the headlamp in December, which is the perfect time to test a headlamp in the UK. Furthermore, to our luck Simon was going wild camping in Tarangire Safari Park in Tanzania so he could really put the headlamp to the test.
Simon tested the S3 rechargeable in the cold and rainy Chillterns UK at his night running event. He teaches runners about running in the dark. It is really nice to know that the headlamp is completely waterproof, when using it in winter time.
When using the headlamp in Africa, Simon also had positive impressions. It got dark at 6.30 PM at the campsite in Tanzania, so a headlamp is an essential bit of kit. Simon describes it perfectly himself:
“Looking after 30 students in an environment where elephants, leopards and lions can roam freely through our camp does bring some interesting challenges. Throw into the mix, that it gets dark around 6.30pm as well as scorpions and other critters looking to make a new home in your tent or hiking boots, a head torch is absolutely essential!“
There is no doubt the S3 rechargeable has really been put to the test!
Another short extract from the conclusion of the review:
“I love this little head torch, I think it has so many great but simple features that makes it exceptional and easy to use and is definitely perfect for camping, as was its intended design. But actually it does a lot more than that too as I found in my testing. “
