LED Lenser H7.2

rated 5 of 5 stars These are great headlamps. The new LED Lenser H7.2 and the upscale H7R.2 bring even brighter adjustable top range illumination. The new LED Lenser H7.2 replaces the H7 with a 250 peak lumen rating (300 for the H7R.2). At maximum setting it is rated at 175 yards which I have found to be accurate with fresh batteries. The newer model takes 4 AAA batteries, one more than the older H7. With any battery powered device you have to accept that most of the time it operates somewhere less than full power… Full review

Black Diamond ReVolt

rated 5 of 5 stars A solid, well-built performer that eliminates adding batteries to your shopping list. I've had my ReVolt for about three years and after relatively heavy use it still operates perfectly in a wide range of conditions. Having had a fair number of headlamps the ReVolt is the one I'll go back to again. The ability to recharge with a USB cable before a trip via my computer, a wall socket (no included adapter), or in the car on the way to the trailhead is a feature I won't ever give up. I still carry… Full review

NiteRider Adventure 180

rated 4 of 5 stars To start out with I just want to say I really like this headlamp. It has some flaws, but then again most things do. As a general use headlamp for an outdoor enthusiast the Adventure 180 is great. You would like this headlamp if you want a multipurpose light for use around camp, map reading, cooking, gathering firewood, and to an extent night hiking or other activities where long range visibility is wanted. What makes this headlamp really stand out is its broad range of light output. You can use… Full review

Black Diamond Spot

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Spot 2016 is an improvement. I am not a headlamp gear freak, but it was time for an upgrade. The 2016 version performed very well while cooking dinner in the dark and other activities such as cleanup, hanging food sacks in bear country, reading, and not blinding my partner in the tent on a recent 5-night trip. I used the headlamp every night. Spending time at home mastering and memorizing the features and their control is a no-brainer. Do it. The new maximum output of 200 lumens at 80 m is a nice,… Full review

Petzl Tikka

rated 5 of 5 stars Simple things just work. Simple things just work. Simple ... Lightweight ... Easy to find since it glows in the dark ... Long battery life ... Reliable. Full review

Princeton Tec Fred

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Lightweight, bright, affordable, efficient headlamp with both red and white wide and narrow beams. It is perfect for backpacking, running, or grilling. I previously owned a Petzl Tikka XP and was becoming increasingly displeased at its battery life as it aged.  I decided it was time for a new headlamp. After reading multiple reviews, I decided to purchase a Princeton Tec Fred. Because I wanted it mainly for backpacking, I chose the Fred because of its low weight (< 3 oz.), the fact that it offers… Full review

Black Diamond Storm

rated 5 of 5 stars A great balance of weight, brightness, and burn time. BD seems to make a headlamp for everyone's taste and requirements. I'm very impressed with my Storm. The fact that it has a very bright lamp I can dim to any setting, and then have full bright with a touch, is a very helpful function. Remembering how to activate the various settings might take a bit of practice. Relatively lightweight considering the burn time, and good range of brightness. Happy it's waterproof, although I haven't tested that… Full review

ZebraLight H502r Red AA Flood Headlamp

rated 3.5 of 5 stars This niche headlamp / flashlight is best used for preserving night vision or for light sensitive operations such as for astronomy, in the dark room, maybe tactical operations, as it has only a single red led. It is a flood style lamp, so there is no focused beam. While this lamp is a high quality product, I would not recommend it for most people due to how short the range is, it is enough for around camp, but no more. It really is a niche product. This light is best used for close quarters or in… Full review

Princeton Tec Byte

rated 0.5 of 5 stars I purchased the light at Cabelas and agree with the problems everyone else has. The button is hard to push. We were working on a construction job close by and purchased it for that reason because I needed one that evening. I liked the size to wear on my hard hat. I used it two times and the button pushed in when I tried to turn it on. I know it is intended to be used for many other purposes, but if it doesn't work in construction then where will it hold up? I liked the size of the light with the… Full review
