Apex is the greatest!
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Nickoftime from Sierra Foothills on Thursday, August 6, 2009
I'm an all around home builder and outdoor adventurist and have purchased at least 8 headlamps over the years. Though some of the lights have held up well (Petzl Duo and Myo) none have compared to the long life strap that the Apex has. Of course the different light modes are a huge bonus and the brightness is quite impressive as well. I don't know why it's so hard to get right but PT uses quality elastic on the Apex. I just bought five more for gifts and myself thinking that my original (going on 2+ years of daily use) is going to die or get lost someday. I use mine every single day and have found with 4 NiMh rechargeables it is one of the best tools in my arsenal. The switches are easy to press even if you have big fingers (unlike the Myo). The beam is consistent and does not flicker unlike some of the competitor's that must use cheaper contacts. This is the best headlamp on the market in it's class, I promise.
