Snow Peak has just launched the SnowMiner headlamp, another top-tier camping accessory constructed with the brand's typical intuitive design and minimalist aesthetic. With enough power to last 140 hours, the compact direct-beam headlamp transforms into a dome-light lantern with a soft pinch of the silicone lens.

When pressed into the concave headlamp position, the lens focuses all 80 lumens of the LED light at one source, offering a concentrated beam of direct light for trekking. Pop out the lens from direct light-source contact, and the SnowMiner becomes a dome lantern, giving off ambient light to illuminate a tent or camp site when hung by the oversized rubber hook accessory.

The adjustable light with four settings—including a strobe—allows the user a wide range of lighting options from one portable source. The SnowMiner is available now from Snow Peak online for $50.
