Technically, the Snow Peak SnowMiner LED Headlamp is for hiking in the dark. But when you see the words snow and headlamp together, can you think of anything besides snowboarding in the dark?

But you shouldn't snowboard in the dark because even if you managed to find a way to do that, it's probably insanely dangerous. In any case, the SnowMiner is now slouch. The LED lamp emits 60 lumens worth of light. When strapped to your head, it shoots out a 35 meter focused beam. Awesome. But there's more.

The lamp dome is made of a shape-shifting silicone material. When you squeeze the sides, the concave lens of the headlamp pops out into a dome-shaped form factor, effectively turning the SnowMiner into a lantern. For $50, what more could you ask for from your outdoor gear? [TheGearCaster, Adventure Journal]

Sure you will need a helmet and mount and a Cammelback to hold the battery cell but at 1500 LUMENS!!! this thing is no joke. It hurts my eyes just looking at the reflection of its beam off a wall, let alone the retina scorching that would be induced from looking directly at the beam. I would just watch to be careful you don't vaporize the snow in front of you as you carve down the slopes.
