Great deal on a quality headlamp

Reviewed by Flatlander from Kansas on Thursday, November 12, 2009
I bought this to replace an old bulky Brinkman headlamp, and so far have been very pleased.

Pros: Brightness is excellent. Lamp actually has 4 settings - three brightness, and one flashing. The flashing is great while cycling to make yourself more visible to motorists. Headband is wider and grips better than my old Brinkman. The headband adjustment ring is also shaped as a tool for opening the battery compartment, which works great. Even in dark, wet, cold conditions this makes battery swapping easy to do just by feel. The vertical beam adjustment is "notched" meaning it stays put once adjusted, but can be easily re-adjusted with one hand.

Cons: Wish it had red LED option. The on switch can be a little hard to use with gloves on.

Overall, this is a great deal on a high-quality headlamp. Only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is because I haven't had it very long, so can't comment on durability or battery life.
