If you’re curious what the difference is between the H51 model & a H51w – check out this video.
Like most gear – it’s all about personal preference, or perhaps location/terrain or weather.
One thing I did notice for the H51 models – they do not have a red light or lens diffuser attachment. The headlamp I use now has a red light mode — however, not sure if that is something I would personally need with this model being it has so many light levels. Again, it’s all a matter of preference ;)
Thanks to Chad for going over all the functions & features for the Zebraligth H51.
For me, my blog is a journal, but for others, I hope that it is an interactive learning tool to aid them in their own progression towards lightweight backpacking.
