UCO Designs Thinnest, Lightest, Most Comfortable Headlamps on the Market

Seattle, WA – Heritage lighting brand UCO is introducing their new collection of stylish headlamps that offer users a customized fit at an affordable price. The collection blends time-tested expertise in lighting gear with never-before-seen features to offer the ultimate in style, performance, and comfort. The first to debut in the collection are the A-45 and A-120 Comfort-Fit Headlamps™, which will hit retails stores across the country this Fall.


“We spend a ton of time using the gear we build, which helps us develop products that truly benefit the outdoor enthusiast,” said Graeme Esarey, President of Industrial Revolution. “Headlamps can be a real headache, especially when worn for a long time. We saw a need for a headlamp that was truly comfortable for the user, while at the same time being stylish and affordable.”

Both the A-45 and the A-120 headlamps (pictured) are designed to be the thinnest, most comfortable headlamps on the market, with a unique, no “hard point” hinge design that allows for long-term, headache-free wear. For a custom fit, UCO uses a soft, adjustable, neoprene strap with an adjustment system like your favorite baseball hat that allows you to “set it and forget it.” The light turns on with a simple, ergonomic twist of the dial (like a wall dimmer switch at home) which infinitely adjusts the light output to fit every situational need, plus provides a red LED for night vision mode. Both headlamps utilize a highly water-resistant CREE XP-D LED bulb.


UCO powered their A-45 Comfort-Fit Headlamp™ with two button cell lithium batteries that provide up to 200 hours of light. Weight with batteries is 1.6 oz. (45 g). MSRP: $29.99.The more robust A-120 Comfort-Fit Headlamp™provides brightness up to 120 Lumens from three AAA batteries held in an external battery pack that keeps weight off of the forehead. Weight with batteries is 3.7 oz. (104 g). MSRP: $39.99.

The new UCO Headlamps will debut at Summer Outdoor Retailer in Salt Lake City at the Industrial Revolution booth #40.
