Mammut X-Shot Headlamp

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Hard use headlamp that stands the test of time in all manner of conditions. Good for canoeing in dark conditions, close up work, and hiking. Recommended for those who are serious about night movement. I purchased this over six years ago in Alaska for use while duck hunting. Since then, it's been used lots of times in all types of weather (wet, cold, wet and cold, hot, you name it!). It has decent battery life and throws a great spot -— so good in fact that you can use it for night / early morning… Full review

Petzl TacTikka XP

rated 5 of 5 stars Bought it for its tiny size, partial power settings, wide and narrow beams. I've had it for several years now. Every summer I spend three or more months in tents, and use it at least half an hour every single day. Batteries last so long that I forget whether I have changed them that season or the previous one. In 2015, this Tikka XP is now "the old model", but still delivering as the first day. A great flashlight that I can also use as headlamp 50% of the time. I walk around mostly during the day,… Full review

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
