  One tough headlamp
  Posted by: taj on Jan-30-14 5:40 PM (EST)
 

While not the brightest on the market, 80 lumens isn't too bad either, the Princeton Tec EOS is a rugged unit. The EOS II is rated as 'intrinsically safe,' which is a National Electrical Code rating for the ability to be used in an explosive atmosphere. If I remember correctly both models are similarly rated, just not advertised that way. What does that mean to kayaking? If it is tight enough to not ignite gas fumes it surely isn't going to leak if you swim with it. It can take a beating.
