BioLite HeadLamp 750

After fly in baggage—die I took my Biolite 750 into luggage and fly. After I arrive, get my baggage, come home, and see Biolite 750 flashing twice blue every 3 second and front button not work, like iPhone button not work when power off. I think, ok! Let’s go charging, but I connect charge and blue flashing still flash. I leave it for hours... After I try to start and more restart and press any button, all button, but hi is done. Many review for excellent light but nobody don’t say—problem. Full review

LoveBeams Magic Headlamp

The LoveBeams Headlamp was built by a clever engineer who wants to provide superb lighting for a variety of environments. As a rechargeable headlamp that can be used with firmware, users should expect a versatile, colorful, and efficient experience. LoveBeams Headlamp When LoveBeams released their first headlamp, I was excited to get the opportunity to test it out. This little package can be used in a variety of environments to light the way. But it’s built with customizable features, which means… Full review

Princeton Tec Apex

Bought this lamp on the Princeton Tec website. Fantastic headlamp—my dad is a farmer and said it's the best headlamp on the market. Headlamp recently stopped working. Sent it back to USA as it has a lifetime guarantee. Got a replacement the last day in the post. What can I say but Princeton Tec has excellent after-sale service. What a headlamp, what a company!!!!

BioLite HeadLamp 330

This product is very comfortable, but sadly is not environmentally friendly. I love the concept of many of their products. But I am disappointed that they do not try keep their products from being discarded when they break. Some some simple adaptations could be  easily made. As much as the company claims the battery will last longer than others, you cannot buy any replacement parts for their products, so into the landfill they go.    Full review

Black Diamond Storm 375

Good light, good functionality, but you can't replace the batteries in the field without an additional tool. Generally a great light, with lots of functionality. It's a little heavier than others as it uses 4 AAA batteries. Battery life seems a little short—but I can't be sure and that may be due to powering the extra brightness. I take it on all trips from ice and rock climbing, to back country skiing and hiking. The biggest problem is changing batteries in the field. While the door opens easily… Full review

Princeton Tec Vizz

It stopped working after sometime. I didn’t use it much either. Stay away from this product despite lifetime warranty. Cause actually you need this device in most critical circumstances and when it stops working then you are pretty much done for. My review of this product is totally terrible. It's not reliable. and when you are in some critical situation like tracking in the mountains this could mean a difference between life and death. Who care about lifetime warranty? You won’t be able to… Full review

Petzl NAO+

A powerful headlamp for night skiing, night biking, kiwi-spotting, or other activities where a good look ahead is needed. Optional reactive lighting automatically adjusts for distance, increases battery life, but takes some getting used to. Requires a mobile device and app to access all controls, but the app won’t work reliably on all mobile devices. Great for moving fast, but overkill for slow speed activities, and definitely not for the light minimalist. Here in Norway, we take our headlamps… Full review

Coast FL1R

This is one of my most essential pieces of camping gear! Hands-free light is essential! I love how compact this headlamp is. It’s comfortable, bright, rechargeable and overall well designed. Great value at this price point as well. Additional features: reflective head band, emergency light, high and low light setting. This headlamp doesn’t turn on unless you turn it on too—my old lamp constantly turns on with the slightest touch in luggage etc. This was a big improvement for me. I love that… Full review
