Coast FL75R

rated 4 of 5 stars I used the Coast FL75R on my thru hike of the Continental Divide Trail last year. It's an extremely bright headlamp and its wide to narrow beam focusing sets it apart. It’s not perfect but it’s pretty damn good... Modes The FL75R has two buttons, the left button as seen in this picture actuates the main lamp and the right button turns on the red light. One click of the left button activates High Beam (530 lumens), another click switches to Medium (Unlisted) and one more for Low (65 lumens) then… Full review

Black Diamond Spot

rated 5 of 5 stars Great value, extremely bright, and adjustable brightness. Black Diamond claims you can see 80m with this light, I haven't measured but I can attest to being able to see at least 5x the distance compared to my old cheap, no-name headlamp. There are multiple setting for the lights. The close range low power light has a wider beam and allows you to see your immediate surroundings quite well. The full power lamp has a much more focused beam, great for distance. Batteries lasted me for a few overnights,… Full review

Mammut Lucido TX1

rated 5 of 5 stars Minimal extrinsic-battery headlamp (meaning a giant step stronger than lamps with emitter/lens and battery all in one housing, but a giant step weaker than regulated-supply lamps with heat sinks and more or bigger cells), the TX1 is ideal for ordinary, non-critical activities that don't involve high risk or high speed. Spot is concentrated, floods are broad, both are fixed-focus. Margo Costan has a screw loose. Anyone with two functioning brain cells understands this perfectly capable headlamp isn't… Full review

Petzl e+LITE

rated 3 of 5 stars A very light headlamp, but with some durability issues. There are already a number of reviews of this light, and I will not repeat that information. I write only to say that having used both the older and newer versions of this light on extended trips (14+ days, each), there is durability problem I've not seen mentioned in the other posts. Specifically, dust and grit gets into the lever mechanism. This makes turning the light on and off, or switching between settings, either impossible or done only… Full review

Petzl e+LITE

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Petzl e+LITE is a great lightweight headlamp that provides more then adequate light for helping you hike along the trail at night or digging something out of your pack in camp. I have been working to reduce the weight of my pack for longer trips I take in the summer and have been going through my gear looking for where I can shave a few ounces and switching to the Petzl e+LITE shaved another two ounces! I can feel my pack getting lighter already! When I am backpacking my lighting needs are really… Full review

Ledlenser MH2

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great headlamp that packs a punch with dual focusing beams. As a member of another website, I get the amazing opportunity to review products that have been given to me in exchange for an honest review. This time, I won a Ledlenser MH2 headlamp in a contest. Wow...just wow! What a headlamp! This thing is amazing. I recently tested a Ledlenser MT10 flashlight, and it rocked. Its cousin, the MH2 headlamp, was no exception. Their specialty is something called the Advanced Focus System which is a combo… Full review

Princeton Tec Remix

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Decent headlamp. Owned for a few years. Didn't do a ton of research, other than I didn't want to spend a ton on a headlamp for how little I use them. This item has served me well. Solid illumination and pretty comfortable on the head. Light is adjustable up and down to help project beam (I especially like this when gathering small sticks). Easy to pack. Have only replaced batteries once in 3-4 years and 7-8 nights of use. Happy with it. Full review

TAC5 HDL-1200

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The TAC5 headlamp is great for for hiking, fishing, military, law enforcement and security, roadside safety, and many other uses. The TAC5 Headlamp provides users with an incredibly bright hands-free light. The TAC5 headlamp provides over 100,000 hours of light, is made of aircraft grade aluminum construction, and has five modes of operation (high, medium, low, strobe, and SOS). I was looking for a long time for the ultimate headlight as I do a lot of my activities in the dark, not to mention diving. Full review

Fenix HL60R

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This powerful and rechargeable headlamp both packs a punch, and has efficient settings for the outdoors-person that wants a rechargeable device. This headlamp is ideal for first responders, night hikers, or anyone who wants a variety of power settings. The Fenix HL60 headlamp is an excellent piece of gear that fits many criteria for the serious outdoors-person. The price point (I paid $75) is well worth justifying this piece of gear. Specifications: Weight: 51g/5.25oz (with battery) 5 Output modes,… Full review
