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 ...

I just lost my old one at a party and I had to replace it right away. This is a great headlamp.
I've used it mostly for night time trail running and it's very nice. I also use it anytime I need a light. The LED's on high are enough for most situations
but if you need more the big LED is a total light cannon. Battery life is good I've felt that I get a lot of use out of a pair of batteries even in single digit (f) temps The warning light comes on with plenty of battery life left. It fits well, and is adjustable. I barely notice it. The batteries can be expensive
so shop around to get a good price and definitely check the review because some of them are worthless. Also the buttons can be a little difficult if you have really thick gloves on

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 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.
