The precision engineering found in ExtremeBeam’s tactical lights has set them far and above other flashlights on the market. Now, the company has used the same lighting technology of its exceptionally crafted handheld flashlights to create one of the world’s brightest and farthest reaching 3.5 ounce quick-focusable headlamps.
The OSR-800, attached to a fully adjustable elastic headband, is fitted with a 180-lumen LED bulb and masterfully engineered lighting amplifier that work together to throw light to distances beyond 550 feet. The head bezel of the OSR-800 also features a transparent red ring that illuminates the user’s peripheries when the light is in full focus. This feature is especially useful for users when reading a map or navigating uneven terrain.
The OSR-800 is ready for any adventure, even if that adventure happens to take a turn for the worse. Along with its high-mode, Hike-mode, and flash settings, an S.O.S. flash signal can be initiated when the power button is depressed for 4 seconds. Because of the extreme distances this light reaches, it instantly becomes a distress beacon able to be seen easily by rescue aircraft at high altitudes, and by simply disengaging the headlamp from its headmount base rear cover, the light can be left in a field in S.O.S. mode signaling for help while survival provisions are being sought after or rest is being gained.
Because of ExtremeBeam’s ability to use less lumens while still outshining the offerings of many other industry heavyweight lights, battery life is extended exponentially. In fact, the OSR-800, operating on just three AAA batteries, has an average run time of 24 hours in hike-mode.
The MSRP of the OSR-800 is $29.95.
