Have gone through several head lamps using batteries in lamp which is front end heavy and slides down. Also lost several lights to leaking AA and AAA batts. I've had good luck with CR123 batts.in Mil and LE duty lights. And relative long life on lower settings. All lights on a 200 lumin power level ...

Looked like a great headlamp until finding the battery case was cracked. Returned to STP and re-ordered the same model. Again, it was cracked in tje same general area. Returned a second time and ordered a Black Diamond headlamp which is performing great. Very disappointed as the Princeton Tec light had more features but turned out to be junk.

Just received the olive drab version. Really impressed on the output. Have not had to change batteries yet. Also it is very lightweight. Bought for all purpose use and duck hunting. Just wondering how much the CR123 batteries are going to set me back. Overall, very impressed. I own another Princeton Tec head lamp and it also has been dependable.

I walk our dogs every night about 8:30pm and it is dark. We live on a dirt road in an area surrounded by the San Juan national forest and with all the critters are out here -- coyotes, bobcats, mountain lions, and all their prey, rabbits, squirrels, deer, elk, etc. I'm sure you get the idea I have to see what's ahead and off to the sides. It's important to me to see clearly ahead of us and this headlamp makes that possible. This one is so much better than the older headlamps we've had for several years, much more light and side beams for wider lit area. The push buttons are so much easier to work and I can operate it with gloves on my hands. Haven't had to replace the batteries yet and I've been walking every night for almost 2 months using the lamp.
I purchased one of these from STP at least 3 years ago and have had no problem with the battery housing. I am hard on stuff but have been careful not to over tighten the screw that keeps the battery compartment closed. I could see if you tried to tighten too much it could possibly crack.
About a month ago the plastic that holds the lamp onto the strap broke. It is a hinge-like piece probably due to the intense cold. (I lived in Interior Alaska) I also had an old Princeton Tec Scout with a similar break, also bought at STP. Princeton Tec did not ask where I bought them or for a receipt or anything, just gave me an RMA and address to send them to. Set it about two weeks ago am waiting on the replacement or repaired lights back.
