He looks well prepared incase something happenes to his primary headlamp.

But only ONE of those is technically a headlamp! :laughing:

Well I guess you could stretch to three, if you count the two little Maglites attached to the headlamp band. Nice helmet too!
I especially like the shoulder-mounted lanterns... :banana:

Folks, folks,

I don't think that picture is anything to make light over.

Let's all try to grow up, please. :D

Well, I know who to call if I need enlightenment. Of course, that's only if I can't shed light on it myself. Makes me light-headed even.

You ought to see that guy when he's turned on! In fact, he's been charged with battery at least once.

If you guys don't calm down, sparks are gonna fly and that's definitely a negative. It'll really make the place dead.

Now you're trying to polarize people in this discussion. I wonder if that guy can be charged for having that many lights at once?
