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.
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.
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!

Headlamps are awesome. Well… at least some headlamps are.
In most cases, your average throw-away hardware store headlamp is not awesome. But let’s be honest here. There are some cases where it might be awesome.
So… When IS your average sissy hardware store headlamp awesome?
If you’re a 3-year-old that breaks everything in 5 minutes… then it might be awesome.
If you want to give a headlamp as a gift to someone you hate… then it might be awesome.
If you went on a drinking binge the night before; have a terrible hangover and bright lights hurt your eyes… then it might be awesome.
So… if you fall into one of these categories and are in need of a headlamp, then you should definitely go to the nearest hardware store and buy a normal headlamp. You aren’t going to want to buy ours. Because the LHB-1000 ain’t for sissies!
