Hello Im Jordan. Im Currently a Student Studying Product Design In Manchester. This Year I Am Tasked With a Group Project With a Company Called TREKMATES, That have Asked Us To Research, Design and Create a New "Lightweight Camping" Torch That Will Steal The Market.

So For My Primary Research I Have Chosen To Collect Data From Campers and Travelers To See What they Look For In Product Such As These. 

Here i have 2 surveys. It would be greatly appreciated if i could gather some respones to use in my Work To help my team produce a base design and the minimal requirements for this product. 

One survey is via link, which you Can Click on Here --->" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">TORCH LIGHTING SURVEY

The Other Will Follow Here. Could You Copy and Paste it into the comments, adding you answers to the Questions provided please?
