NU25 UL Headlamp by Nitecore

"The NU25 UL is, at only 1.59 ounces, optimized for the most dedicated outdoor enthusiast that take carry weight very seriously. The dual band design evenly distributes the weight with a very simple cinching mechanism to control the tightness for user comfort. The multithreaded cord has highly reflective bands for enhanced visibility, as well as glow-in-the-dark bands for visibility without ambient light."

Unbound System by Hyperlite Mountain Gear

"In building a reliable, efficient, and comfortable ultralight backpacking kit, “The Big Three” are big for a reason. They’re the core components of your ticket into and out of great experiences in the backcountry. And everybody knows good things come in threes–like the three longest thru hiking trails, for example. We can’t walk those miles for you, but we’ve got a system that will get you to your journey’s end and beyond."

The Sprint is ideally suited for overnight or 2 day trips, youth and smaller backpackers, or for groups who share the food load among all hikers."
