Which is the best new headtorch / headlamp for trail & ultra running in 2020 – the PETZL Iko Core or the SILVA Trail Runner Free H?

Hi I’m Claire from Wild Ginger Running and this is my review of the two latest headtorches / headlamps from two of the main, top quality brands that runners use, the new Petzl Iko Core and the Silva Trail Runner Free H.

As with all the gear I test on my channel these were sent to me by the brands, but they have absolutely no control over what I say in this review as I’m sure you will see for yourself by my honest comments in this film. 

I was really excited for these two headtorches / headlamps to come out because they both boast some really significant technological changes, but does that make them any better than their older incarnations? Watch the film to find out.
