Outdoor Pro Gear specializes in quality products designed for outdoor enthusiasts throughout America. Their flagship product, the Lighthouse Beacon 1000 LED headlamp, is the first in a long line of products the company plans to offer as the business grows. With increasing interest in the company and its popular headlamp, Outdoor Pro Gear has revamped their website and is ready to unveil it to the public.

As our company is expanding, we thought it was time to draw more focus to our website and make it a great resource for people that love spending time in the outdoors hunting, fishing, camping, caving, hiking, bike riding, and anything else that brings them closer to nature,” said CEO and founder of Outdoor Pro Gear Marci Murray.

Ms Murray goes on to explain what people can expect when they visit outdoorprogear.net: “We want our website to be the “go-to” site when searching for information not only about our products but also about the latest trails, hot tips for the hunting season, wilderness packing ideas, and anything else that we know people want the run-down on. We’ve also had a lot of requests from people who want to actually buy our products straight from our website. So now we are offering that option.”

One of the endearing qualities of Outdoor Pro Gear is that this is a company that understands the great outdoors. Ms. Murray comes from a long line of farmers and is an avid hunter, who also loves fishing and getting out into remote areas of the west coast. It’s this passion and knowledge that fuels the company and has resulted in the development of one of the most popular headlamps currently available.

The Lighthouse Beacon 1000 LED headlamp is sophisticated technology presented in a user-friendly, reliable and durable design. The 1000 lumen Cree XM-L T6 LED bulb delivers exceptional lighting in all conditions, complemented by its long battery life. Visitors to Outdoor Pro Gear’s new website can learn all about this product and why so many people won’t be without this headlamp.

Tradesmen Swear By The Outdoor Pro Gear LED Headlamp For Reliability & Functionality

Pros #1 ChoiceThe Lighthouse Beacon 1000 LED headlamp is breaking new ground in lighting. A fully adjustable, durable, and affordable headlamp, outdoor enthusiasts are making the most of this product. However, its appeal doesn’t end there. With the Lighthouse Beacon 1000, things are looking brighter not only for outdoorsman but also for people who work in industries like plumbing, electrical, pest control, contracting and many “fix-it” related jobs where the headlamp is proving itself useful.

I have been using head lamps for over 5 years and this is the only one I have liked,” says Lighthouse Beacon 1000 LED headlamp user David Laverdiere.  “It works perfectly! It is obviously constructed so well and the light is so bright (on the high setting) that I began using it to inspect and work in the chimney industry. I would not dare use any of my previous headlamps for that job. So far it has proven to be very durable and I’m still on my first set on batteries! I’m going to buy one for each of my employees.”

Pros #1 Choice AThis sturdy, lightweight headlamp is made from aluminum alloy and ABS for lasting durability. With a push of a button the headlamp can be switched between high, low, and strobe mode and with an adjustable beam it is possible to focus in on a narrow point or expand for wide vision. The headlamp incorporates a Cree XM-L T6 LED bulb with a 100,000 hour lifespan and the three AA batteries required to operate the lamp will run for approximately 33 hours continuously before needing replacing; this is very economical compared with other lesser quality headlamps.

The Outdoor Pro Gear Lighthouse Beacon 1000 LED headlamp comes in three color choices: red, black, and blue. Available on Amazon.com, currently Outdoor Pro Gear is running a special promotion, discounting this popular headlamp to $39.99. This is a limited time offer and customers are rapidly taking advantage of this deal.

The Next Generation In Top-Of-The-Line Headlamps Is Now Available

From Carbide to Cree. Headlamps Have Come a  Long Way.

Old Miner HeadlampHeadlamps have been around for decades, however initial designs were very crude, unreliable and often incredibly dangerous. Over the years, new designs have been developed to provide more reliable and powerful lighting options. Now company’s like Outdoor Pro Gear are delivering the next generation of sophisticated and refined designs revolutionizing headlamps and giving consumers more versatility than ever before.

In the late 1800’s carbide lamps were the dominate form of headlamps. These lamps ran on acetylene gas and had the potential to explode. Largely redundant now, carbide lamps are still occasionally used by cavers. Today modern headlamps run on batteries. The earliest versions were literally flashlights that could be worn on the head so that people could work hands-free. This is most certainly a big step up from carbides and hand-held devices that had to be propped up and aimed correctly for “hands-free” use. However, new advances in technology have brought about far more sophisticated designs.

Headlamps have really come a long way since their inception and now the next generation in headlamps has arrived,” says Outdoor Pro Gear founder, cranberry farmer and outdoorswoman Marci Murray. “Your typical hardware store headlamp is 25-100 lumens. That might be fine if you’re working on something 2 feet away. But for your average outdoorsman, hunters, fishermen, campers, backpackers and hikers, 100 lumens just isn’t going to cut it. We want more. We want intense light. We need to be able to see well and see far. Our headlamp, the Lighthouse Beacon 1000 (LHB-1000) is 1000 lumens. It’s not your average hardware store headlamp. This is a whole different animal. It is truly the next generation in headlamps.”

The Outdoor Pro Gear Lighthouse Beacon 1000 LED headlamp is a cut-above-the-rest. Not only does it deliver exceptional lighting, it’s also versatile. Featuring an adjustable telescopic zoom allowing for wide and narrow beams, users also have the option of high, low, and strobe lighting. Run on three AA batteries, this headlamp is exceptionally efficient and will provide light for around 33 hours. The quality Cree XM-L T6 LED bulb has an incredible 100, 000 hour lifespan, that’s approximately 11 years of continuously lighting!

While it may be expected to pay a small fortune for a Lighthouse Beacon 1000 LED headlamp due to the superior design, it’s actually very affordable. Currently this product is on sale for $19.99 with free shipping when you buy 2 or more on Amazon.com. Outdoor Pro Gear also provides a 100% customer satisfaction guarantee. People serious about lighting may wish to check this headlamp out, although it should be pointed out that at this low price supplies will run low quickly.

Bicycle Helmets and Headlamps

I am often asked if the Outdoor Pro Gear LHB-1000 headlamp will fit on a bicycle helmet. I will have to admit, I don’t own a bike. So I have to rely on others to answer this one for me.

Today I received an email from a customer that talks about this exact thing. I thought this would be a great place to share the information.

The LHB-1000 Headlamp “fits really, really well on the Schwinn Swift bike helmet Model SW77534-2.  The battery pack fits solidly into the space in the rear of the helmet (no extra straps or velcro needed), and the light can be easily fixed to the front of the helmet with two or three short velcro straps. There are enough air holes in the helmet to allow just about any arrangement.”

This helmet is only $20 at Walmart and has some nice features.

We’ve certainly had our share of reviewers that talk about using the LHB-1000 while bicycling.  Here are a few of them.

Great light for biking! It is very bright and easy to wear. It throws a powerful beam that you can direct with a turn of the head, which you cant do with a mounted light.My husband loved it for camping. The battery pack holds three AA’s so it lasts longer than my other headlamp. I really like the easy focus feature that changes the beam from narrow and intense to broad and wide.  -A. Murray | Amazon Review

I bought 2 and just got back from Yosemite where they came in handy while biking, hiking and walking around camp. Easy to put on and take off and durable if you drop it.  – L. Eltringham | Amazon Review

Unbelievably bright and the light is very even, unlike normal flashlights that have a single bright spot in the middle and rings or streaks. I like the fact that the battery compartment is on the back of the head strap, lessening the weight of the light in the front. I also really like that it uses normal AA batteries instead of the weird rechargables that some ultra-bright LED lamps require. The strap adjust to fit snugly directly on my head but can be adjusted to fit over a bike helmet as well.   – D. James | Amazon Review

THAT’S Lighthouse Beacon Bright!

We had a little fun this evening going out and doing some photo testing with our LHB-1000 headlamp. People are always sending me their pictures and I thought maybe we’d try our own. I wasn’t disappointed. This really shows what we mean when we talk about the LHB’s convex lens focusing technology. It really gives a nice even distribution of light rather than a small bright beam in the middle with ambient light surrounding it. It’s hard to beat the power of 1000 lumen with a convex lens!

The power of 1000 lumen.

Outfitter Does Video Review: LHB-1000 Headlamp

Northern Michigan Outfitters – Colorado Pro Staff just posted this video. They did a nighttime in-the-dark comparison of the LHB-1000 headlamp and 2 other headlamps. As always… we are loving the results! 🙂

That Hiking Guy’s Reviews the LHB-1000 Headlamp

We were super excited when we found out that Chris Colbert, aka That Hiking Guy, had bought one of our headlamps and was going to do a video review of it! It really doesn’t need any introduction. Here it is:

 

Do it Yourself: Green or Red Filter

If there is one question that many customers have asked me, it is this:
Do we have green and red filters for the LHB-1000 headlamp.
The answer is: We are working on it but we don’t have them yet.

First off… why would you want a filter on your headlamp or flashlight?

Green filter: Green filters are mostly used in hunting because green lights don’t frighten animals. They are also used in tactics A green beam can’t be seen from aside and makes it impossible to disclose your exact location.

Red filter: Red light is good if you need to see but don’t want to disturb your night vision. Great for reading maps and navigating. Also can be used as a signal light.

Today we received an email from a customer who made his own green filter. He was kind enough to take pictures to share with everyone.

He started with a Butler Creek Flip-Open Scope Cover that fits over the head of the LHB-1000 headlamp.

It’s a tight fit… but it does go on.

He bought his at Gander Mountain. I bought mine on Amazon.

He then bought a hard plastic green plate. (You could do red.) You can find one at a dollar store or party supply store.

He put painters tape on the plate and cut it to match the lens of the flip-cover. He then glued it onto the inside with silicon glue, leaving the original lens in place.

The final product. The LHB-1000 Headlamp with a green flip-cover filter.
The final product. The LHB-1000 Headlamp with a green flip-cover filter.

And there’s the result! Pretty good! I think it’s brilliant that he used a flip-cover lens. This allows him to use the headlamp with or without the filter when he is in the field or simply take the entire unit off when he isn’t using it at all.
Thank you, Mark for this wonderful contribution! We really appreciate it!
