User Review: Princeton Tec Corona
Price Paid: $40
I gave this light a high mark b/c of the quality and it does what it's designed for very well. I actually bought the bike version. I have used it as a bike light, helmet light and as a headlamp.
Here are my observations:
I use the Corona bike light and I have a headband that I use when I want to use it as a headlamp. The light is no HID but it does a good enough job for me to ride single-track trails through the trees. The extra run time and long cord are big pluses for winter use as I can just put the battery pack in my inside coat pocket and the run time from the 8AA battery pack is insane!
Here is where I bought mine:
It is larger but still fairly lightweight since I do not have battery pack on the headband. The battery pack can be placed in a pocket or attached to belt or pack w/the velcro straps on it's nylon case.
Cold weather hiking, some general hiking, night time outdoor activities like fishing and kayaking, and as a bike-or-helmet mounted light (I just bought the DiNotte Lux V for my helmet). Now it will probably just remain on my bike since I bought the APEX unless I need an additional light for a friend.
Here is a very detailed review:
