Description

Qark is bright, lightweight and versatile. It's a reliable USB rechargeable head torch that gets the job done whether pushing to the summit at dawn, hitting the trail after dark, or simply reading back at camp. It'll turn night to day with its 580-lumen maximum output and keep going when everyone's gone to bed with its 18-hour maximum burn time.

  • Dual battery compatibility lets you swap in 3 x AAA batteries when you're out of charge.
  • Output brightness can be controlled from 30 to 580 lumens with an adjustable beam width.
  • Single button control, a 90˚ tilting light unit and IPX6 water resistance rating for use anywhere and everywhere.
Note: we made a small mistake in this video. Qark has a 270 lumen output on its medium brightness setting, not 70 lumens as quoted.

Reducing our carbon footprint

We have joined the Science Based Targets Initiative which sets independent targets for us to achieve to do our bit to limit global warming to 1.5°C. Our targets are to halve our Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 2025 based on 2018 base year and reduce our total carbon intensity by 15% every year to achieve genuine net zero by 2050.
