What a great product. I have two headlamps currently, neither of which will take a red bulb or lens. This little light is just the perfect add-on. Plus it was cheaper than buying a bulb anyway. Great for reading maps and saving your night vision while moving at night. Get one.

Neat little light. I bought 4 of them (red and green) and have them mounted on a couple of Princeton Tec head light straps and a couple of backpack straps. Work great for finding your pee jug, when the bladder alarm goes off in the middle of the night and it’s just too cold to get out of your sleeping bag - or - you need to find something else in the tent and don’t want to loose your night vision because big foot is rumbling through your campsite.

The only problem I had with one of the lights was one of the push buttons was a little reluctant to work so I had to take it apart and do a little minor adjustment. This is the only reason they don’t get a 5.
