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.

  • Very effective spot / distance beam


  • Would prefer an internal / protected cord


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 canoeing. Today, though it shows a little corrosion around the internal buttons, it still works like the day I bought it.
