Recent Headlamp Reviews

Black Diamond Gizmo

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Super dependable light. Small, lightweight, and long battery life. Yes, there are brighter headlamps on the market, but for lightweight backpacking (when hiking at night is not on the agenda), this light is ideal. At $20 USD this lamp is inexpensive and, so far, has been very durable. I've dropped it several times and it still works. It throws a beam about 25 feet. It has a floodlight setting, which is great for pulling stuff out of your pack and setting up camp. It runs on two AAA batteries and… Full review

LED Lenser H7

rated 5 of 5 stars Separate adjustable power and zoom options. Long burn time and reasonable price $69 (at the time of purchase). I did pay full price for this light and it’s been used a ton. It’s actually had more use at home than on the trail in the last 12 months with a new bulb in the house it’s been a great night light. At 117 grams, 170 lumens and a burn time of 54 hrs, it is negligible to carry or wear and has enough go for a multi-day adventure without the need for extra batteries. It has a zoom function… Full review

LED Lenser H7.2

rated 4 of 5 stars This headtorch is a lightweight, high performance piece of kit for hikers/cyclists/cavers/those requiring a reasonable amount of light coupled with credible battery performance. It's not the cheapest light you can buy, though, and could do with adjustment on some minor points. Just to make the point, this head torch was a replacement for my H7, which unfortunately failed the test of duty when it was wanted. So I downloaded a warranty form off the LED Lenser website, sent it off with the H7, and… Full review

LED Lenser H14R.2

rated 5 of 5 stars What a fantastic light!! As a pro wildlife photographer, early a.m. starts and safety are paramount. This baby delvers a most comfortable fit and feel, and can light up all of my needs from close up work to distance. The rechargeable batts are bulletproof and handle cold as well as serious florida summer heat as well. I especially like the red LED dial on the back of the head band, as it delivers additional safety visibility! The unit is slightly heavier than you run of the mill standard headlamp,… Full review

Black Diamond Cosmo

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Bright enough for night hiking. Could use some padding against the forehead. REI recently put this on sale, and I snagged one because my old Black Diamond kept turning on by itself in my pack. This one does not have that problem because the on/off switch is recessed and protects from accidental activation.  I haven't measured, but I recently did some hiking on the AT in the darkness as I left camp at 5:30 a.m. I could see just fine with this headlamp.  I have used it liberally for 6 nights on… Full review

Princeton Tec Byte

rated 1.5 of 5 stars NO value if the batteries continue to die. I found this collection of reviews while searching for battery usage problems I've experience with the Byte. I like its size and the fact it only uses two AAA batteries, but none of these advantages matter if the light is always dead when I go to use it. I often store the light in a drawer for weeks until needing it again. Every time I find the batteries have died. I've also tried removing the batteries when not in use, but this is a hassle, and then I'm… Full review

Princeton Tec Sync

rated 3 of 5 stars An average headlamp that runs well, is easy to operate, and features a good range of motion. A few flaws, but for the price, it's a serviceable option for campsite or tent usage. Conditions:I purchased this headlamp nearly one year ago, based on its low price and a friend’s recommendation. Nearly all of its use has been in cool to warm temperatures (40-85°F), with minimal exposure to freezing temperatures (which tends to exhaust batteries quicker) and it has handled moderately rainy conditions. Full review

Petzl NAO

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Bright, reactive lighting maximizes battery life and optimizes brightness for the task at hand. Been using the Nao for a couple years now for any fast paced nighttime activity including trail running, roller skiing, cross country skiing, and night mountain biking and a bit of mountaineering. I used it last January during a 24 hour run in Wisconsin and although 500+ lumens wasn't needed as the long distance necessitated a slower pace, it definitely helped psychologically since the sun is down for… Full review

UCO A-120

rated 4 of 5 stars Light and comfortable on the head with an easily adjustable output, the UCO A-120 works well for in-camp lighting or after dark activity both on- and off-trail. Good battery life even on the brightest setting makes this lamp especially good for those who night hike or do other activities that require long periods of use, even if it is just reading in your tent. Product Specifications From Vendor:    BATTERY TYPE (included): 3x 1.5v AAA in external pack    BULB TYPE: CREE XP-E LED    HIGHLY… Full review
