Recent Headlamp Reviews

Princeton Tec Vizz

rated 1 of 5 stars Why do the batteries routinely go dead after just a few hours? The first Vizz I owned seemed to have an electrical short -- why else would the battery go dead so quickly? So I called Princeton Tec to report the problem and they graciously agreed to have me send it back to them. They soon sent me another -- and the life of the batteries is equally poor: maybe 2 hours of use, and now the red light indicating low battery life is flashing. The problem with the burn time negates any redeeming qualities… Full review

Princeton Tec Apex

rated 5 of 5 stars A great headlamp. Waterproof battery pack a key feature. A really good product. Got it for under $50 on Sierra Trading. Store without batteries to prevent leakage. Full review

Panther Vision LED Lighted Cap

rated 5 of 5 stars PowerCaps or Visors merge the cap and head lamp, eliminating weight from your pack. Great battery life. I always wear a cap or visor when I hit the trail and, of course, always need a headlamp. Power caps combine the two and allows you to eliminate a head lamp from your pack its base weight. Battery life is long and you wouldn't know the light is part of the cap.  It does use two CR2032 batteries which are easily found at home but maybe not a "trail town." Spares are much lighter than AA's or AAA's. … Full review

Petzl Strix IR

rated 5 of 5 stars Good light output. Small, lightweight, reliable, hands-free operation. Full review

Titanium Innovations Illuminati

rated 5 of 5 stars The best ultralight single AAA 132 lumen light for 2015. At 12 grams (0.4 oz), with the clip attached, there is no lighter headlamp on the market. And with a runtime on high of 1.5 hours, it has 3 times the runtime of the closest competitor in its class. This is one of the smallest, lightest and brightest lights in the world. High 132 Lumens (1.5+ hrs), Med 35 Lumens (4+ hrs), Low 3 Lumens (30+ hrs) 2.5 inches long x 0.5 inch diameter 12 grams, (0.4 ounces) with clip Uses 1 AAA battery The Illuminati is… Full review

Princeton Tec Vizz

rated 4 of 5 stars I have to say overall not a bad light for its price point. It does the job well, not great, but well. I have not used this light for extended periods of time yet. What I can say is that it is a pretty decent light at its price point. I'm definitely a light freak. I have many flashlights. It's kind of a hobby. I can say if you spend a few more dollars there are better options out there. The main plus is this is available at local stores and doesn't have to be bought online. I have really only used… Full review

Black Diamond Sprinter

rated 5 of 5 stars Throws out lots of light. Comfortable and stable while running. I wanted a headlamp that would throw enough light and not bounce around while running. The Black Diamond Sprinter is great on both counts. It actually illuminates far more than I expected — I have no problem seeing any obstacles on the trails and roads that I normally run on. The headlamp is very comfortable and stable. I always recharge it fully after each run, but it's probably not the headlamp you want for a multi-day trip. I haven't… Full review

Petzl Zipka Plus

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Compact, light, and reliable. Have used this nimble, compact head-torch for years now. Not only is it a good and reliable piece of kit to have with you on a camping trip or expedition, but it is also ideal for everyday tasks such as walking the dog. I have grown to love this little torch over the years and it has proved itself to me on many a darkened occasion — I once dropped it in a river and when I managed to fish it out, it was still in perfect working order. It gives you plenty of notice… Full review

Black Diamond Gizmo

rated 4 of 5 stars Very lightweight and affordable. If you like the K.I.S.S. method (keep it simple stupid), this is a great pick for a headlamp. This time of year it seems essential to have a headlamp to run after work. It's dark at 4:30 and that's when I get out there. The other night I was on my jog and felt something bounce off my head, after looking around there was nothing to be seen. Then again it happened... Suddenly I notice it's pitch black and I'm not really sure where my feet are landing. Apparantly my… Full review
