How do you feel about Exposure Lights?

  • Exposure head torches are the best head torches on the market. They are tough, bright and comfortable. The light settings mean you can easily flick between red and white settings and really bright settings if required. I use mine mostly on the first lowest setting because its so good.  You can easily adjust the angle of the light if you need it away from the eyes of team mates or specifically focussed on a particular area. The torch is easily adjustable on your head and the wide band is super comfortable and light I often find myself forgetting I have it on and it’s the day time! It also fits around my bike helmet easily for winter commuting! I face tricky and testing conditions and the design stands up to them well, water proof and resistant to salt and dirt the charging point is well hidden so works really well. An absolute must have for night time sailing.
