I got this because I found a great deal on it and read great reviews about the product on a number of sites. After purchasing it I intended to use it almost exclusively as a night climbing headlamp, but it has been invaluable for long day hikes that spill into night, and will be my companion for ice...

It's not fantastic, but it's not terrible, either. The first time I took this headlamp out of its packaging and inserted t the included batteries, I was concerned by how cheap the plastic battery clasp felt. Hopefully the batteries last as long as advertised, so that I won't have to mess with and potentially break that clasp anytime soon. Please note that this is the older 'Fuel' version with only three LEDs. I've seen this same named headlamp elsewhere and it has four LEDs. The light radius emitted is very broad instead of narrowed, even on high mode, and dims dramatically after 15-20 feet. I would have also enjoyed a red light feature, but overall for this price point - especially if you use one of Sierra Trading Post's numerous coupons - there are no major complaints to be found.

Every day I walk down to the creek behind my house over a very steep and uneven and pebbly path that goes for about 1/2 mile for daily aerobic conditioning. Since I finish work at 7pm, I would have had to give it up about now until late Spring were it not for this terrific device. In the dark, it lights up the path surprisingly well. The strap is comfortable and stays in place. The light itself, as I said, is quite adequate for my purposes. I have to say that I cannot tell much of a difference between low, medium, and high settings on the light. It's superfluous to me anyway. Very good product.
