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...

If you're looking for a nice, inexpensive headlamp, you can't go wrong here. It's comfortable, easy to use, and the variable brightness settings are quite useful. Also, it does not seem to accidentally turn on very easily while being battered around in your backpack, which is a problem I've had with other headlamps.

Bought 2 of these to keep one in my son's pack and another to use for around the house. Took it backpacking this past weekend and it is bright for the size and fit him well (12 years old). Good basic headlamp at a great price.

I like this light, for what it is. It's not super-bright, but works fine for 99% of uses. It's light, easy to use, water-resistant. The only problem I've encountered is that the plastic piece that shuts in the batteries tends to break off, making the light useless. Cheap enough to replace the light.

All I can say is...."Buy this headlamp."
I'm a gearhead who is always looking for deals IF the function isn't sacrificed. This headlamp fits that bill.
Comfortable, great coverage and easy to operate even with gloves. Yeah...it's lacking a red light mode but that's not something I personally ever really use. And while 43 lumens isn't going to be the most powerful beam out there I've used it night hiking and it's been more than sufficient.
For the price you'd be hardpressed to find a better functioning headlamp and you won't go wrong with Princeton.
