Bilby 400 Headlamp
This product in currently out of stock
Simply put, the Bilby is the world’s most powerful silicone headlamp.
The Bilby produces a serious output of 400-lumens and offers an impressive 5-hour runtime on full power, and over 105-hours on the lowest setting.
It’s lightweight, dust proof and waterproof to 1m (IP67 rating) and intuitively designed from medical-grade silicone to ensure durability while providing form-fitting comfort.
The Bilby will suit the most serious outdoor enthusiast in the most demanding of situations.
Multiple Light Options
The 5 LEDs on the Bilby are optimally placed for their individual purposes – a high beam to see by, 2 elliptical beams for mid and wide beam angles, a red light for night light purposes and downlights for reading. Within each mode there are four brightness settings. On the brightest setting, the Bilby has a range of up to 100 meters.
Another outstanding feature of the Bilby is its ability to be customised via Knog’s own Modemaker app. This app allows users to increase Bilby’s modes from 6 up to 8, and choose which order they are operated, allowing users to create a headlamp that is customised to their specific own needs.
A final unique feature of the Bilby is its special ‘boost mode’ that allows a user to extract full power from 2 LEDs simultaneously. This really lights things up for a period of up to 10 mins.
Rechargeable With Integrated USB
Say goodbye to single use batteries.
The outstanding feature of this design is the fact that the USB is integrated into the lighting pod – which means no cables to lose or break.
To recharge the headlamp, simply plug the pod into a USB-A port, and you’ll have a full charge in just 4 hours from flat.
Matte Silicone Finish
The Bilby’s body and strap are moulded in matte finish medical grade silicone that won’t tangle your hair. It’s easy to clean and is adjustable to fit head circumferences from 300-660mm.
The extremely comfortable silicone strap adjusts with a toggle. Once you’ve found your size you can set and forget or adjust on the fly.
Unique Pod Chassis Design
Our new removable pod chassis design is packed with advanced optics allowing for various beam widths and elevations. Through the use of the 2-intuitive buttons, users can electronically raise and lower the light beam over a 20-degree arc which overcomes the need for the traditional mechanical adjustment ensuring the light points right where you need it when you need it.
The same removable pod is fitted with an innovative heat sink design, which helps prevents the headlamp overheating even when on full power over long periods of use.
And remember, the Bilby is IP67 rated, meaning it’s waterproof to 1m as well as dust-proof. This headlamp is made tough.

We love this headlamp! super sleek and comfortable. Great adjust-ability of light modes and brightness. Battery level check when off is a great addition.
The only letdown is that the red light is not bright enough at max. The cheaper bandicoot model has a brighter red mode.
I was lucky to be one of the original Kickstarter supporters for this product. In all the years since then I have been absolutely thrilled with this headlamp. It just plain WORKS. At -20F in snowy January, at +95F in steaming July. The slim, lightweight design, phenomenal light range and quick USB recharging make this a JOY to use. The silicone band stays in place (best with a hat) and is comfortable to wear for hours which is great because a single charge will last for far longer than any other headlamp I've used. It is simply one of the best pieces of outdoor equipment I have ever purchased. A De-light
Super comfortable on head and doesn’t move around when running
Great for purpose - remote health centres in PNG, delivering babies where there is now power and easily cleaned case - charged by the Rotary Solar Case.
I haven't had much time to play with this yet but I love the five light types (long beam, mid beam, down beam, reading light, and night vision saving red light), comfort of the silicone band, and it's not too heavy to boot. Really nice design and highly functional. No regrets with backing your kickstarter, great product.
