Recent Light Reviews

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

Gear Aid ARC LED Light & Power Station

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Sturdy, reliable, and rechargeable. The ARC is both a light and a power source that has come in handy in a wide variety of scenarios. Conditions I’ve used the Gear Aid ARC Rechargeable LED Light and Power Station ("ARC" from here on out) for three consecutive months in the autumn and winter in the mountain region of central Pennsylvania. As a light source, the ARC has been used in a wide variety of scenarios including in a tent as lantern; in the woods to help gather kindling; around a picnic… Full review

Ozark Trail 500-Lumen 12V Spotlight

rated 5 of 5 stars This product is great for illuminating targets at .25 miles, has minimal weight, and is water resistant. Great for paddling and boating. I recently purchased an Ozark Trail 500L LED handheld spotlight/Q beam for a 100-mile paddle across the Wilderness Waterway at Everglades National Park. I was extremely impressed with the overall performance of this product. I utilized this spotlight to illuminate the waterway markers, which assist paddlers in navigating through the Wilderness Waterway, while transitioning… Full review

UCO Original Candle Lantern

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I carried one of these (as well as other candle lanterns) for years, then... Once upon a time I never went into the woods for an overnight without a candle lantern of one kind or another. I probably had five or so different makes and models. They still lurk in my gear storage. This is one of the better ones, maybe the best one. For example, this lantern gives nearly 360 degree light as many do not. Still, all candle lanterns have problems and this is no exception. There is potential for spilled… 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. 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
