Fenix Lighting shows the way with ‘Made the Grade’ Headlamp

November 11, 2022

TUCSON, ARIZONA USA /OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – Capable of converting quickly from headlamp to right-angle flashlight, the Fenix HM50R V2.0 Rechargeable Headlamp deserves serious consideration. Awarded ‘Made the Grade’ status from INVESTMENT GRADE GEAR, this light fits the mantra of Know It, Trust It, Keep It at home and on the road.

‘Add red light capability to the long-running, rechargeable white light, and there’s no comparison,’ says INVESTMENT’s founder and lead evaluator Peter Reese. ‘For almost everyone, it’s time to abandon plastic headlamps and no-name flashlights in favor of this bestselling Fenix model.’

Pushing up to 700 lumens and 377ft in Turbo mode, there’s eight hours runtime waiting at an effective 130 lumens. Generous tilting, along with a nearly-universal headband, makes the HM50R V2.0 a worthy companion; as does reliable USB Type-C recharging.

Says Toby DeMoss of Fenix Lighting, ‘Fenix continues to be committed to making the best lighting products on the planet, and the The Fenix HM50R V2.0 Headlamp is no exception. This headlamp is the perfect balance between size and performance, and is packed full of useful features which make it one of Fenix’s most popular headlamps. We are happy that Fenix ‘Made the Grade’ and is worthy of being Investment Grade Gear.’

The Fenix HM50R V2.0, as with many of the products selected for ‘Made the Grade,’ has been in evaluation through multiple seasons, and is an updated version of a previous model: It merits special consideration for performance, lasting value, and embracing a ‘less and better beats more’ approach to a more sustainable future.
