I forgot to mention outright that the headlamp or flashlight you use should be of good quality and use an LED, i.e. not homemade, not cheap, not considerably old, able to withstand a typical drop, etc. Beyond that, the chances of an LED failure are so statistically insignificant that you'd have a higher chance of suffering an unpredictable medical emergency.

comment Why are backpacks mostly not made of waterproof material?
It seems far fetched that the expense would be an issue. Reputable brands almost always have low and high tier products. Sure, the less expensive tiers are going to appeal to the average consumer and turn inventory faster, but there will always be a healthy supply of professionals that need the best gear money can buy.

'All day' is probably different than 24+ constant hours without relief. Search for 'immersion foot' and 'cold water immersion'

comment Why are two birds obsessed with a chopped-down tree?
If you came home and your house was gone, just the foundation was left, you'd probably act the same way.

comment Why might one need a 2000 lumen headlamp?
A headlamp is just a flashlight on your head. What don't you understand?
