User Review: Princeton Tec Yukon HL
Source: borrowed it
- Strong beam
- Adjustable pattern
Recently we had a bit of trouble in the backcountry of Arkansas and made a run for the vehicle late in the day. My buddy had this little beauty as an extra for the trip and let me borrow it after my Black Diamond burned out.
I complained at first about the weight but soon I had forgotten all about that as we scrambled up and down "mountains" to try and get back before nightfall. We didn't make it. We were tired, sore, and had seen mountain lion tracks the entire trip.
I turned this bad boy as we approached the final ascent and descent of the last mountain — right as darkness fell. This light shot a beam so powerful I could see all the way to the top of the mountain. On the way down I could adjust the focus and scatter the light to make sure that each step was secure.
Yes, it was heavy for a headlamp, but I wouldn't trade it for anything. I have had my own for a few years now and the review has held true during that entire time. Long burn time with interchangeable rechargeable batteries, bright on "beam mode," easy to use and durable.
BEST. HEADLAMP. PERIOD.
