The Novalite is an extremely lightweight and compact headlamp that's ideal for those looking for a good quality light on a budget.
This small and extremely lightweight headlamp should be an essential item in every rucksack. Super bright, despite its minimal weight. Ideal for a wide range of outdoor activities.
Edelrid's Novalite is a good headlamp for the price. It's not the brightest in lumens but it is a lot lighter than others, weighing only 72g (with battery). It's a great size for keeping in your pocket or pack, ready for those days you venture out longer than expected. The battery life is not as long compared to others but I'd say that's reflected in the price. But as it only takes one battery it's easy enough to store some spares in your pack.
In terms of design, it looks pretty good. It has Edelrid's distinctive black and green colours with a funky diamond/crystal pattern on the headband. So if your looking for a cheap and cheerful headlamp for shoving in your pack, this will do the job.
