This headlamp is perfect for me. I don't need more than 3 leds in my headlamp as battery life outweighs lumenisity for backpacking purposes in my opinion. As for the battery cover; be careful as it is a little tricky and susceptible to possibly breaking the latch when replacing the batteries, but I have not seen many that are much better engineered.

It's a solid little headlamp for the price. the pivoting body design should help with longevity vs a rotating emitter (like an energizer headlamp). I like the compact design more than a tikka. The battery door is kind of a pain to open, yet seems to be more sturdy than the PT byte.

Pretty nice light, but the price made the difference and turned it into a great deal. Good directional adjustments, good beam, and feels solid. This does not have the spotlight feature that some of the more modern headlamps have, but I was not looking for that due to battery life concerns. I was looking for a something that I could wear on a week long backpacking trip without having to worry about battery life.

Works great, very bright light. I haven't had it long enough to evaluate its durability, but it's a great light for walking the dog and doing barn chores in the dark. Easy to use and to adjust. I only deducted a star because I have worn another headlamp that was more comfortable against my forehead (when worn without a cap): still, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this one, especially at such a great price.
