Headlamp for skiing and backpacking
Looking for a new headlamp. Have a couple winter camping trips planned this winter. I dont think my 19.99 wal-mart special will hold up in the elements. Good waterproof lamp with good light. I wont go cheap but id like to keep it under 90 bucks. Good battery life is a must.

Petzl or Black Diamond would be my go to reliable headlamp for any outdoor activity.
Dimmable and "red light/low power" modes are nice.
usb Rechargable + optional battery so you dont need to rely on batteries but you can use them in a pinch.
Coast Headlamps and the best that I have found, they are reasonably priced made in the USA and fucking bright as shit
Black diamond light weight good quality
about 40 bucks on amazon
If you want to see shit at night while skiing, get one made for mountain biking at night. You can see everything with those
I have a Black Diamond that does the job well. Don't be afraid to get one with more lumens. Mine could be a little more powerful, it wouldn't hurt.
