Verified Buyer Reviewed by Timberling from Colorado on Thursday, March 15, 2018I am so glad I was able to take advantage of the closeout of this product. I have had a similar style and just love it. I like the fact that you can tone down the amount of light and can use the red light in two strengths. I have found the use of red is very much appreciated in camping situations.
Reviewed by Lorenzo Gonzalez from Ventura, CA on Monday, March 5, 2018The battery cover latch breaks, no matter how gently you manipulate it. It may last through several battery changes, it may last only one. But I've eventually broken the battery latch on EVERY SINGLE ONE of these I've owned - at least 6 (SIX) of them. This goes for every Princeton Tec lamp with this chassis, no matter the price point/features.

Reviewed by CaveSAR from nr Ithaca, NY on Wednesday, March 15, 2017I'm glad I got this headlamp - it starts, stays with the red LED, low then cycles to high. You have to hold down the switch for a couple of seconds to switch to white LED, low then cycles to high. Turn it off and red LED is again the default. The yellow body makes it easier to see in your pack or if you drop it. I am getting several more - camera bag for night photography, my EMS bag, my ski patrol and SAR packs. Even for the computer bag - when you are using a projector and the room lights are low.
Read the directions about changing batteries! To get the red LED to come on first - you have to discharge the capacitor by removing the old batteries then holding down the power switch for several seconds.
Warts: Looks like the seam for the two halves of the body might not be sealed very well. So put some super glue or PLASTI DIP on the seams. I have had the battery door clip crack on other Tec models - I then wrap them with duct tape. So if you are going to be using this light a lot, changing batteries on a regular basis, you might want a different headlamp. The rotation is stiff - one needs two hands, one to hold, one to rotate, even on your head. Since I hang them around my neck, pull them down over my head, this isn't an issue.
