Coast Micro Headlamp
Price Paid: $19.99
This is the simplest headlamp to use just like Campmor says. It's on or off. I love that. No blinking or flashing. It is very bright. At the Mashpicong shelter on the AT in NJ I could illuminate the woods with the light and they are about 100 yards away. Very powerful.
The only drawback is that it can easily turn on in your pack but the battery lasts so long I don't think it is a problem. It is also very light and inexpensive. It's my favorite headlamp now.
