Petzl Reactik +

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Petzl Reactik Plus incorporates Petzl's reactive technology light settings with the added feature of being Bluetooth compatible to pair the light with the MyPetzl Light app. I highly recommend this light and it performs well in a multitude of activities ranging from hiking and snowshoeing to backcountry ski touring. Background Details: The Petzl Reactik Plus is a headlamp that incorporates Petzl's Reactive lighting technology which adjusts lighting output based on user need. The light has a… Full review

Princeton Tec Byte

rated 1.5 of 5 stars Looks sturdy. Lightweight. Doesn't last. I bought the light because it looked sturdy and had a good amount of light with a light weight. I used it four times last trout season. This month I put new batteries in it and found the soft selector switch does not work. I removed the rubber cover and tried to use the tiny switch directly. The light would flash bright, but would not come on. Not durable or dependable. Full review

Petzl Tikka R+

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Expensive but powerful and versatile compact headlamp — a huge leap forward from classic 3xAAA lamps. Not as powerful as various Chinese lights. This lamp was discontinued by the manufacturer in 2016. Its direct replacement is Petzl Reactik, which is slightly more powerful, but lacks the power level customization feature. I’d not recommend it. Consider Reactik Plus which may be customized via phone app.  I’ve been an owner of Tikka R+ headlamp for more than a year. Recently I’ve purchased… Full review

Princeton Tec Fred

rated 3 of 5 stars A decent, lightweight headlamp with red mode. The Princeton Tec Fred is a basic headlamp. It's relatively inexpensive and offers two white light settings and two red light settings. It's waterproof, light, and easy to use.  On the pro side, the waterproofing of the headlamp is effective. I have put it to the test on many different trips, but I have yet to have it fully submerged. I've also used it in subzero temperatures (Celsius) and it putters on. However, I do not think the range is as good… Full review

Princeton Tec Byte

rated 4 of 5 stars Ptec has a fix for the battery drain, that also acts as a lockout for the switch they will send you for free. Makes it a very good lamp. Note, you don't have to send your light in for repair, just call their customer service and they will send you a new battery door with the lockout feature. My go-to pocket lamp. Good red light. Acceptable main white beam for size. Convenient, small, nice to have the lockout feature. Full review

Black Diamond Iota

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Perfect for trail running. You'll still need a longer-range one for route finding. As fall approaches and nights get longer many say goodbye to trail running and relegate their morning runs to either asphalt (yawn) or a treadmill (sacrilege). 1st world problems at their best. Many runners either quit running in the mornings during the winter or stick to lighted streets.  The struggle is real. You can use a headlamp but: Most headlamps eat WAY too many batteries for daily use. Full power headlamps… Full review

Princeton Tec Vizz

rated 1.5 of 5 stars Could be really nice lamp if not for defective circuit... :( My son bought this for me a couple months ago and lamp worked perfect for the first couple times I used it. Now when I want to use it I have to open up the battery compartment and squeeze unit together to get light to come on—very frustrating!! There must be a short somewhere in the circuit or something??? I am gonna try and return it for another one before I buy from competitor. Full review

NiteCore HC30

rated 5 of 5 stars Great headlamp for a good price. Best for serious night navigation and caving. Ok, so I can finally add this review after several months of punishing caving and some night navigation. This light gets a fantastic review. Bought it when one of my Zebralight H600 lamps died. It is similar in the general design, but there are marked differences. 1. The light cycles through the different modes much more intuitively than a Zebralight. It can be annoying to users like me at first, but once you figure it… Full review

Petzl Tikkina

rated 4.5 of 5 stars For the price it is high quality. A very cheap and good quality headlamp.  The brightness is pretty good (80 lumens), has two modes which are easy to operate. Battery case seems OK.  Full review
