    45% off a neutral white head torch plus conversion kit to make it a Nova H1R.

    A lot of kit for £35, I reckon it’s a bargain. Both my Alpkit Gammas got chucked in the end, I was getting fed up with the total unreliability of the battery casing, dumping batteries clattering onto the ground behind me and being left in pitch dark with a torch that can’t be repaired is a PITA.

    I’ve just ordered one of these this morning, they look excellent?

    I’ve bought 3 or 4 Olights in the last couple of years and have been very impressed with them all

    For what it’s worth, I’m skint too so Ill be swerving this one.

    Be aware Olight don’t have a good reputation for neutral tints, they vary and often have a greenish hue. I’ve bought my Olights in cool white only, and I think this one is NW only.

    Edit: A bit of googling suggests the tint problems were a while ago now, 2013-13. I didn’t find anything regarding poor tint recently.

    I have the H1R and must admit it is rather epic. :)

    Mine arrived a few days ago, I caved in the end. :shucks:

    It’s unboxed and kitted with the R kit, and hidden in a side pocket of my rucksack alongside general utility stuff like a mini gas can and stove, the old Griptilian and a few other bits. Hopefully it’ll go unnoticed next time we camp.:roll:

    Just double checked, I ordered the i3t Eos, smaller AAA torch (I can get the batteries free st work so makes sense for an at work carry).
    The M1T might be too bulky for pocket carry.
