Our first headlamp gave out so I ordered this one. So glad I did. The light options are great with the brightest light allowing us to shine it into the woods on a night walk and see what just made that sound! The band that goes around the head is stronger feeling and easier to adjusts. The only thing missing is the red light that the other one had.

I love this sturdy lamp. It's my go to, for sure. The three different settings of steady light are quite different, making them all useful.
These are the three reasons why I gave it a 4 instead of 5: 1. It's a bit heavier than the other Princetons I have. 2. It burns batteries quickly on high..you can tell when the batteries are waning because the most powerful setting starts to dim and then all three are about the same brightness as the lowest setting after a while and 3. I love the vertical mechanism for focusing the beam up or down during reading or other close jobs. It's not a sturdy design on that part of the lamp. Mine eventually broke right off. Naturally, STP was great about sending me a new one because it was under six months (so STP gets 5 out of 5).

I finally broke down and bought this headlamp to replace my big ol' clunky Petzl that used those monster flat pack batteries. I was hesitant going to LED because I knew some of them couldn't really throw a beam very far. This is not one of those headlamps! Good strong beam that really cuts through the darkness. The pivoting lamp was a must for me, and Princeton has done it well on this model. Nice design with a tool-less battery cover that makes it easy to replace batteries on the go. On/off button is a little stiff and a bit cumbersome if you're wearing heavier gloves, but at least it won't accidentally get turned on in your pack. Was so happy with this headlamp, I bought more to outfit the entire family!
There is no red light. 3 brightness settings and one flashing. I used this light a ton this summer for trail running, camping, and hunting. Loved it, especially for the price.

the head band light is controlled in a handy area in the front. You can make it flash or be steady. The red light is also controlled there.
we camped out on the desert for 10 days and this light was the best. Night on the desert without facilities, well, I say no more.
