Headlamps have come a long way in a very short time—it was only a decade or so ago that the handheld MiniMag still ruled the roost of personal illumination devices. Now, tiny, high-output headlamps are ubiquitous—and a new one that we like is the Irix II by Icon. Like most good lamps, the Irix’s LED lens is bright and powerful, and a wide variable beam lets you both light things up and conserve battery power as the situation demands—although a single AA powers this compact unit for up to 100 hours. What makes this light truly unique is the dial on top, which gives you full output adjustment—from zero to 50 lumens and every increment between. No more three-setting switch; now you can make innumerable microadjustments with a twist of the fingers. Pretty darn handy for reading, tying on flies, setting up camp, or any other outdoor task. $30; myiconlight.com.
