I ordered one about a year ago, then I ordered three more recently! I keep one in different places int eh house, and take one with me whenever i go camping our biking. the band is fully adjustable and the light beam adjustment does not get loose over time. The light beam is very bright, so much so that if you're talking to someone you have to lower the light so that you don't blind them.
Best Uses: Backpacking, Car Camping, Day trip, Hiking, Housework
Describe Yourself: Avid Adventurer
Pros: Adjustable Beam, Bright, Durable, Long battery life, Stable

As this is a gift for my son, I am not sure how he would rate this headlamp. That is why I gave it 4 stars, instead of 5. I believe he will appreciate and find this product to come in handy for camping, working on the car, as well as in other situations. From other reviewers' comments, I would think that this is a quality product, which is why I purchased it.

I ordered this ski as a backcountry powder ski. Mounted with Voile CRB hardwires, it has been a solid tele performer at the resort. Compared to the BD Havoc, it has a smaller waist but similar tip and tail dimensions. It does want to turn, turn, turn. It made short work of trees, bumps, and cruisers during some late season runs. I can't say how it performs in deeper snows yet, but I bet it will hold up due to the dimensions. Despite the shorter lengths available, it is still speedy. It was billed as a lightweight BC ski, yet it didn't have any real drawbacks on the groomed. But, it is not especially lightweight in my opinion. My pair came with some metal blems in the edges, and needed some file work, which may set you back $$ at the shop unless you're handy.
