During the cold winter months, we tend to keep our hands covered with gloves when we’re outside. Of course, this keeps our hands warm, but it can also make it difficult to handle certain objects. For instance, using a cell phone, flashlight or even just holding a cup of coffee with gloves on can prove challenging. However, in the case of LED flashlights, some of these glove-induced difficulties can be avoided if you choose the right type flashlight – or opt for an LED headlamp instead.
With that in mind, the following is a look at some of the more glove-friendly LED flashlights and headlamps for winter weather:
G25: These high-quality, general purpose LED flashlights are excellent for winter weather. Not only does it have a strong, graspable base – which prevents slippage with gloves on – but it also has a large rubber power button that is easy to push even with glove-clad hands. As expected, these flashlights are also highly durable.
G30: Similar to the G25 but slightly better, these LED flashlights have an easy-to-push power button and a nice, easy-to-grip casing. Additionally, this model features a user-friendly “Twist-to-Focus” interface for adjusting beam strength, which makes it easy to use with gloves on. Like the G25, these flashlights hold up well in cold weather conditions, making them great for outdoor winter activities.
HL3: A handy alternative to fumbling around with a flashlight is using a hands-free LED headlamp. This LED headlamp is a great low-cost, high-quality option for winter lighting. With an over-the-head strap, this headlamp works well for nighttime walks or rummaging around the yard when it’s dark out. A strong beam of light can be projected up to 141 feet with this LED headlamp.
HL6: This LED headlamp is perfect for hands-free winter weather. An easy-to-use power switch rests at the front with a button large enough to switch on even when you’re wearing gloves. The flexible headband will keep the headlamp snug around your head and also prevent snagging on your gloves and coat.
