A power source and a light source that can be mounted on your head. *GRIN* Is this a trick question?


OK, maybe to be more specific, lots of light, lots of power for lots of time. Always a compromise one way or the other. Try a few in a dark shop. Look at the spread of the beam, is it adjustable? If not, will you need it to be adjustable? Is it for cooking when you go camping only or are you going to need to climb and navigate with it on? Is it strong around the mount/hinge/switch etc.? Waterproof? Light weight? Is it easy to replace the batteries or do you need three screw drivers and a vice to open the back?

make sure it'll fit your helmet

I see the new BD headlamps have the wire too short to reach arround to the front.
