Gorillatorch Switchback: A lantern and headlamp

Aside from operating as a compact lantern, the Gorillatorch Switchback can also be converted into a headlamp just in case you decide to go spelunking.

We just posted a hands-on of the Gorillatorch Blade , and shortly after, Joby launched another flashlight, the Gorillatorch Switchback. Like the Blade, it's ultrabright, giving up to 130 lumens using an LED flashlight. Aside from operating as a compact lantern, it can also be converted into a headlamp just in case you decide to go spelunking.

Unlike the other Gorillatorch products , the legs do not come with neodymium magnets so you can attach it to metal objects. That's probably not that big a deal considering the Switchback is meant for the great outdoors--if you see a metal lamppost while "adventuring," you're doing it wrong.

The Gorillatorch Switchback is available for $59.95. See another view of the Switchback in headlamp mode below.
