Recent Headlamp Reviews

Princeton Tec Fuel

rated 4 of 5 stars The Princeton Tec Fuel is an inexpensive headlamp with a reputation of having the battery door break on users. This user has carried the Fuel for nearly two years on numerous backpacking/camping trips and has found it to be a lot of light for a little price. The Con Everyone Complains of: Let's get right to the con, because that seems to be the issue most talked about. Yes, the battery door requires a delicate touch. If you know that when you buy it, you should be all right. However, the Fuel has… Full review

Pelican 2750 LED Headlamp

rated 3 of 5 stars Great light, crap band. This would be my favorite headlamp, but the band started to rip the first day. I have repaired it with a needle and some braided fishing line but would prefer it to be a little more rugged on its own. Full review

Black Diamond Gizmo

rated 2 of 5 stars Hands down the poorest quality headlamp I have ever used. A flimsy, nearly paper-thin plastic housing makes this unit one battery change away from unusable. Before White Nose Syndrome precipitated the closure of state and Federally owned caves in Illinois, I provided an outdoor education course on caves to public and private schools. The culmination of this course was a 4-hour trip to Illinois Caverns. Although I limit trip sizes to only one classroom, I must still provide helmets and headlamps… Full review

Leatherman LED Lenser SEO7 Headlamp

rated 5 of 5 stars 160 lumens of rechargeable power, multiple light functions, water resistant and light enough for most applications, best light out there in my opinion. Variable beam, adjustable focus, 5-hour burn time on 200 lumens, 20 hours on 20 lumens, water resistant, 3-1/2 hours to recharge battery, will take triple AAA batteries as well. Full review

Princeton Tec Vizz

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Frustrating product. Would not recommend. This headlamp has the listed FEATURES as are advertised, but are useless when the lamp fails to light. The batteries DO NOT last anywhere near what they claim. There is NO WAY I get HOURS out of each set of batteries, and I use alkaline, exactly what they recommend. And I do not mix old with new. I use my lamp when I go to my barn after dark. Total time of usage would be 10 to 20 minutes each trip. I am lucky to get three trips before batteries die. PTEC… Full review

Black Diamond Cosmo

rated 3 of 5 stars Good lighting configuration. Switches on in your pack easily. Difficult to load batteries in low light (starlight or moonlight) and difficult to reattach battery cover in low lighting conditions. I was impressed with the lighting configurations. Typically when you are tramping (trekking) you do not need powerful lighting and battery life is the dominant consideration. The headlamp is well set up for providing for a good range of uses — bright focussed lighted for finding distant objects (trail… Full review

Petzl e+LITE

rated 3.5 of 5 stars A functional headlamp for weight-conscious backpackers, who don't do a lot of night hiking. This lamp has been my go-to backpacking light for a few years. It isn't without its flaws, but it has functioned well for me in the field. At 0.9oz (27g), you'd be very hard pressed to find a lighter full-featured headlamp. The e+Lite has five lighting modes (high white, low white, white strobe, red, and red strobe), which are controlled by a simple selector dial with a lock position. The controls are very… Full review

Black Diamond Cosmo

rated 3.5 of 5 stars This is an inexpensive, yet reliable headlamp, that suits most needs for hiking, camping, and evening walks. It has a few quirks, but the basic function operations are pretty simple. I would recommend this product to others, and if it needs to be replaced at some point, I would not hesitate to go with another Black Diamond headlamp. I purchased this headlamp, after having less than satisfactory experience with an LL Bean similar headlamp. I wanted a simple headlamp, bright enough for night-time… Full review

Cree 3 Watt Zoom Ultra Bright Headlamp

rated 5 of 5 stars A great , small, affordable headlamp that really lights up the subject in a zoomable, focusing beam! Uses regular AAA batteries — and keeps on going and going and... The 50% setting is plenty of light to read by and for normal chores. Price is about one-quarter of name-brand equals. After being "outshined" on a backpacking trip — trying to see what was going "bump" up in the dark forest, I started shopping for a headlamp like my companion had. I wasn't ready to plunk down almost $50 for the… Full review
