Designed in California by a contemporary artist and adventure junkie who wanted to make “rad looking headlamps that never quit,” Third Eye Headlamps have truly created something unique. They are made with non-toxic plastic and are the only headlamp company that’s a member of 1% for the planet, but the thing that really sets them apart are the awesome headlamp headband styles.
I chose Galaxy, which looks like you might expect a psychedelic glimpse out into deep space might look. It’s 168 lumens with six brightness settings, red and white lights, and it’s waterproof and comes with a lifetime warranty. You can also buy just the headbands to fit a headlamp you already own from another brand for $12.
MSRP: $49.99. Thirdeyeheadlamps.com
