Albeit heavy, it throws a nice light out a long way. I found it on eBay after I got a recommendation from a friend. He does a lot of winter ascents and he was dead on with how comfortable it is having that much light to throw around.
Here's what other sites are saying:
The Petzl Zoom Headlamp is one of the top selling headlamps in the world. One of the biggest reasons is the design: The weight in front of the lamp is in perfect balance with the weight of the battery at back of your head. This allows for complete hands free use (with other less than ideally-balanced headlamps, you'll always have to pause and make minor adjustments) while you're hiking, camping, climbing or spelunking. A zoom bezel allows you to adjust the width of the light to best suit your needs.

Cast a bright light for up to 19 hours, (battery sold separately). Comfortable three-strap system is secure on your head or helmet, freeing your hands for other tasks. Please Note: Petzl products can only be shipped to US addresses. Spare bulb is in a protected keeper behind the lamp. The weight is perfectly balanced from front to rear, and the soft plastic battery case sits comfortably behind the head. This headlamp features an adjustable beam powered by a strong 4.5 volt battery for hours of reliable light. Weather-resistant construction keeps the light working well in inclement weather.
