Having looked over the various options for headlamps, I settled on this one due to the price point, candlepower, and brand (have had great luck with BD equipment in the past). This has proven to be exactly what I anticipated: A powerful headlamp with just enough options (three settings, angled pivot) and no bells or whistles. It's extremely lightweight, so much so that you can forget you're wearing it if over a hat. The button operating the lamp is large and positive, easy to switch on and off even with gloves (a gripe of mine with many other lamps). The batteries seem to last a long time--still haven't used up the first set, even after extensive work in my attic and basement. And many bumps and knocks have failed to damage the bulbs or function. All in all, this is a solid value and functional little workhorse of a headlamp.
