In fact, these two headlamps have been chosen above all others so we could thoroughly test them and recommend the best headlamp gear for you to use for your nighttime activities. Though these lights are VERY similar, they are not the same.
The DUO S has a couple more features that you may find essential – like using for CAVING or HUNTING. The DUO S has a wide flood beam perfect for caving. It also has a tight spot beam, perfect for hunters looking far for game. Anyway, have a look at the table below and decide for yourself which is better for your needs.

Do keep in mind, the ULTRA RUSH has been discontinued and the DUO S is now the upgrade for this model. The DUO RL is the update to the DUO S in 2022.
