The Best I've Found
November 3, 2016
I seem to have been through a lot of headlamps, starting with the cheap ones then rapidly amping up the quality and price thinking surely a $20 or $30 lamp would surely meet my needs. Each time after a month or two they would fail. To be fair, I use the lamp often and I am hard on equipment as I am sometimes doing heavy work at night. But now, finally, I have found the light for me! I purchased this lamp back in the summer when it was blazing hot outside. Amazingly, this extremely bright light that is very hot to the touch, it not at all hot on the forehead--excellent design! I've dropped it several times in shallow water or mud with no ill effects whatsoever. It is very lightweight, both on the head or in the pocket, but also very sturdy--it really feels like a good quality product when you use it. I highly recommend this headlamp to anyone willing to pay a bit more; it is very much worth the price and you will not be disappointed!
Pros-- the brightness of the light is amazing, along with a great quality of light color and tone.
-- the swivel makes it easy to keep light out of the eyes of others but still have plenty of work light.
-- it is very lightweight but very sturdy.
-- does not get hot on the forehead, even in extremely hot weather. (I live in the desert region of the southwest)
-- waterproof (I think)
-- very easy control button, very intuitive to use, no strange patterns to remember
-- it feels very comfortable to wear, at times I forget I have it on.
-- long battery life, I use it nightly for extended periods of time and can still go for days without recharging.
-- removing and replacing the battery shows exactly how much battery life is left in that charge.
Cons-- I've yet to find any
