Here are my 5 reasons why you’d want to invest in a super bright headtorch for trail and ultra running, how bright should you go, and what features to look for.

It’s powered by Silva the high-quality headtorch company from Sweden, so I’m going to be using this sleek little super bright beauty, the 600 lumen Silva Cross Trail 7XT to demonstrate.

Check out their whole range of headtorches here.

And I’ll be wearing the Cross Trail 7XT and the Trail Runner Free H (reviewed here) this winter, so I’m keen to know from you – “What’s your favourite headtorch?” Let me know in the comments below.
