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

Black Diamond Storm

A really good headlamp, but don't forget your patience... The Black Diamond Storm 350 I purchased one of these headlamps brand new about a year and a half ago and received a second one as part of a prize package about two months later.  I liked the one I already had enough that I kept the second one as a backup and for loaning to that one person at the campsite with the most annoyingly bright headlamp. They both have similar time on them so this review covers them both as I have found no differences… 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

Coast FL1R

This entry level light has few frills, but counts where it matters. The FL1R is a rechargeable headlamp with hat attachment and reflective head strap. We all know productivity slows down when lighting isn't ideal. With this headlamp, you'll be sure to stay in business. I've had this headlight for about a month now and wanted to test it out before writing the review. The FL1R came in incredible looking packaging showing all the specs and features, something you don't get when you buy a knockoff from… Full review

Coast FL1R

This is the perfect headlamp to throw in your bag for day hikes, quick overnights, or a campground stay. It's comfortable, lightweight, and gives a great range of vision for nighttime activities! My old trusty headlamp has been through a lot with me, so I love it dearly, but I was immediately attracted to the compact and sleek design of Coast’s micro headlamp. Sorry old headlamp, but I’m going to go with the FL1R on my next camping adventure. I got to test this out for the first time on the… Full review

Coast FL1R

Solid option for most situations. Overall: I think this definitely has a solid spot in the marketplace. It's not for everyone, but it covers a lot of bases. I would highly recommend it! Full review

Coast FL1R

I hike a lot and at times I end up on the trail at dusk or at night. I'm a little depth-perception challenged, so I need a good headlamp to keep my feet safely under me. This one does the trick! I would highly recommend it! I'm so impressed with this headlamp. I love that it is USB rechargeable. I've had headlamps die before and not had extra batteries with me. Having it charge via USB is a great thing for me.I hike a lot and at times I end up on the trail at dusk or at night. I'm a little depth-perception… Full review
