When I first got one of these, I saw that it was not o-ring sealed where it comes apart, thus the 4 star rating. The manual states, however, that it is indeed waterproof in the rain and carries a three year warranty. I have used it at night and it the rain for high speed hiking and the spot light, held low in one hand, works fantastic. The other wide angle led's are perfect for camp. This is last years model, so I purchased several extras for future use.

My wife liked the little Princton headlamp I had that was similar to this one that I'd used for traveling and camping, so when I saw this one and the design, I thought it would be perfect for her and feminine to boot. She likes it so far and it's more adjusable than my Princeton. It says it has more output than mine too, but we haven't tested them side by side yet.

So i had saw that one dude left a big paragraph on how bad these gloves are but from my experience he didn't even use them. If anyone has worked with leather gloves before would know that it takes a little time to get them to break in. Once i had my gloves broke in i could say that they were exactly what i was lookin for. the removible liner is very convient for drying a wet glove that you need to use the next morning. early morning. my only complaint, only, is that there was no wrist lanyards but easy enough to make your own. I've also found compairable gloves that are not even close to this price range. Get them while it's still cold people!
