Best Spelunking and Caving Headlamps and Flashlights
Looking for the Best Spelunking and Caving Flashlight?
When it comes down to extreme caving or spelunking your life can literally depend on your flashlight. Going underground and exploring new depths requires a flashlight or headlamp that can withstand the test. The best caving light features a hands-free carrying option, has multiple light outputs and has more than 10 hours of runtime. Sometimes in a cave, you will need to use both hands to climb or crawl through a passage and having a hands-free light option can be essential! Moreover, there are times when you are underground that you will want a high light output of 600 lumens or more to see down a hole or further in the distance. But there are small rooms and areas underground where anything more than 50 lumens can be blinding. Optionally, flashlights with red LEDs prevent excessive strain on your eyes after being in the dark for several hours.
The HA2C can be used as a headlamp or as an independent flashlight with a magnetic tailcap, offering much needed versatility while caving. Plus, IPX-8 protection!
