In Review by Jawor | Leave a Comment

Fenix HL40R is one of the few headlamps with adjustable width of the light beam. This alone is enough to distinguish it from a fairly large competition or other Fenix models.

In Review by Jawor | Leave a Comment

What should a windshirt be like? Light, compressible and obviously protecting from wind… It would be also good if it was comfortable and had practical pockets. It seems that this definition was fulfilled by the Helikon-Tex Windrunner, but is that enough?
