Coast FL1R

This headlamp is lightweight, durable, and easy to use! Nice bright light. I've been using this for about two weeks at work and it been great! It is so lightweight yet durable! When I put it on over my hardhat it doesn't flop around like some heavier headlamps do. It's been dropped and used around a construction site and has held up nicely. Compared to some other headlamps at the same price point it has more features and higher quality. It's awesome that it is rechargeable and don't have to mess… Full review

Coast FL1R

Great light with a sleek compact design. Clear bright light path and comfortable. This light has replaced several I keep in my kayak and on the campsite. Its simple and lightweight design are exactly why I purchased another.  Full review

Coast FL1R

Light headlamp for backpacking and all other outdoor activities. Rechargeable and reliable! This is a quality headlamp with multiple settings. You can easily adjust the angle of the beam. The red beam allows you to move around a campsite at night without disturbing others. The headlamp recharges really easily. This headlamp is great for hiking, jogging, camping, or walking your dog at night. It is light and comfortable. I highly recommend it!   Full review

Coast FL1R

Incredibly lightweight rechargeable headlamp for backpacking and trail running. Has several features only found only in more expensive and heavier lights, but in a smaller package. I got the FL1R for the purpose of backpacking where weight and durability are two key features. First off, the headlamp is incredibly light and when I first took it out of the packaging I was surprised that it wasn't missing a battery or any other heavier components. On my kitchen scale, it came in at 1.6 ounces as you… Full review

BioLite HeadLamp 200

The BioLite HeadLamp 200 is a new lightweight headlamp that utilizes BioLite's unique headband design that has the advantage of being very comfortable and light. In addition, the HeadLamp 200 uses an internal/non-replaceable 700 mAh Lithium Ion battery that is charged using a micro-B USB port. The battery life is very good and should be more than adequate for multi-day trips without recharging when used at the lower power settings. Overall the BioLite HeadLamp 200 is a simply designed headlamp that… Full review

Black Diamond Storm 375

A great all-round headlamp with a broad range of lighting options for different situations, including low intensity flood light for tent and hut use, a moderately powerful spot LED that is good enough for downhill skiing on groomed trails or in good snow, and red, blue, or green floods for night vision. Long battery life with judicious use. Great for night running and xc skiing or biking at moderate speeds, backpacking, and around hut or camp. (Preliminary review based on three weeks use during… Full review

NiteCore NU20

From a brief experience it appears to be as advertised—super light, rugged, and of good quality. It functions effectively. 12/31/19 FOLLOW-UP: Only change from my original impression is I'm MORE EXCITED about it. INITIAL IMPRESSION NITECORE NU 20 ULTRALIGHT HEADLAMP This is a brief initial impression of the Nitecore NU 20, as the light arrived just as I was heading out for a night hike. I found the bracket “tab” that covers the switch to be pretty ingenious. The joint between the light and… Full review
