Price Paid: $30

Good overall headlamp. I have used this for about 4 years. It is still going strong. Built well, it does take 4 AA's so be ready for a little forehead weight. It is ignored if you pull the whole apparatus over a hat.

Light is halogen and bright.
Have worn this in many rainy downpours and night labor jobs.

Now it is an older design, but it works well.
Paired with the Tec 40 light I have a counterpart for parts and things.

Now you'll find them on sale because of the surge of LED lights. Get this one for a good hardcore durable and very waterproof halogen head spot.
