LED Lenser® MH10 Rechargeable Head torch review

Winter runs mean head torches for almost everyone and it might not only be the darkness that is getting in your way. I tested this torch out on an epic climb of Ben Nevis.

Ian Corless is perhaps the most influential media figure in ultra, trail and skyrunning. His contribution to the coverage of the sport is massive and it’s no coincidence that his appearance on the scene coincides with that of its greatest increase in popularity.
