Great headlamp

Verified Buyer Reviewed by alpineashley from Bar Harbor, ME on Thursday, October 22, 2009
I got this because I found a great deal on it and read great reviews about the product on a number of sites. After purchasing it I intended to use it almost exclusively as a night climbing headlamp, but it has been invaluable for long day hikes that spill into night, and will be my companion for ice climbing. It is very bright (I in fact usually only need it on the dimmest setting), and simple and light enough for everything I could possibly want. I rarely replace gear because I prefer to treat it gently and repair it when it breaks, but I had this Gizmo headlamp from BD that was dreadful (too many issues to list here) and this headlamp fully surpassed my expectations. I can't recommend it highly enough. If you are looking for a solid headlamp that is light, bright and without too many extra frills (IE things to go wrong when you need that the least) I would say, hands down, this is the light for you.
