UCO Lights Up the Night with Revamped Headlamp Line for 2017

Publish date:

 Versatile new models include rechargeable options, bold styles

Seattle, WA - June 9, 2017

UCO is proving once again why it’s a leader in outdoor lighting with its newly revamped line of LED headlamps. With three bold new styles that offer impressive features, unmatched comfort and competitive pricing, UCO’s 2017 headlamps are the perfect lighting accessory to include in every pack, on every adventure.


The most powerful of the new headlamps, the X series features 5 Super Bright LED bulbs with a highly water resistant IPX4 rating. Use the intuitive infinity dial to easily transition between lighting modes of flood, spot and red night vision, up to 300 lumens. The X-ACT Fit™ strap system provides micro-adjustment for a perfectly custom fit that won’t stretch out. The X+ includes an integrated Hybrid Power Source that allows it to run off a rechargeable Li-Ion battery pack (included), or 3 AAA batteries like the X. Both X+ and X headlamps come with a protective case for travel. MSRP: $69.99/X+, $59.99/X

The Vapor series represents the pinnacle of performance fit and lighting control. This versatile headlamp utilizes UCO’s Precision Fit strap with a customizable, stitched neoprene strap available in multiple colorways. Crank your light up to 300 lumens with easy to use Infinity Dial adjustment and red LED options. Like the X+, the Vapor+ features an integrated Hybrid Power Source that runs off a rechargeable Li-Ion battery pack (included), or 3 AAA batteries. MSRP: $49.99/Vapor+, $39.99/Vapor

The AIR headlamp is the most budget-friendly new model, as well as one of the lightest, thinnest options on the market. It includes a Super Bright LED bulb that offers up to 150 lumens as well as a red night vision mode, and is powered by an internal, rechargeable Li-Ion battery. The Precision Fit strap is a highly adjustable, fully stitched neoprene strap that won’t slip, won’t constrict and won’t stretch out over time. Available in five stylish colorways. MSRP: $34.99

“We’ve spent the last 3 years researching what our customers want and need in a headlamp, and were surprised to find there were no headlamps on the market that seamlessly integrated high-output lamps with high-end performance straps,” says Peter Pontano, Industrial Revolution’s Marketing and Product Development Manager. “The new Precision Fit straps bring our expertise in stitched laminate construction to the headlamps space with performance materials like Lycra and neoprene that offer an unmatched fit. Together with our Patent Pending flexible hinge design and the versatility of the Hybrid Power Source, these headlamps are ready for any activity you can throw at them.”

The new UCO headlamps will be on display at Summer Outdoor Retailer in Salt Lake City at the Industrial Revolution booth #40.
