Summary

Great headlamp that packs a punch with dual focusing beams.

Pros

  • Dual focusing beams
  • Pivoting light for adjusting where the light goes
  • Long lasting batteries
  • IPX6 rating

Cons

  • Just a bit heavy
  • Hard to navigate the instructions for adjusting the beams

As a member of another website, I get the amazing opportunity to review products that have been given to me in exchange for an honest review. This time, I won a Ledlenser MH2 headlamp in a contest. Wow...just wow! What a headlamp!

This thing is amazing. I recently tested a Ledlenser MT10 flashlight, and it rocked. Its cousin, the MH2 headlamp, was no exception. Their specialty is something called the Advanced Focus System which is a combo of reflector and lens that creates a specialty lighting system, and it was great!

Things I liked:

  1. It has a wide band that is easy to size to your head. It doesn't fall off either, so it stays put where you want it.
  2. It's not rechargeable, but it takes AAA batteries, which are easy to find. They say that in low mode (10 lumens) you can go about 40 hours on one set, and in high mode (100 lumens) about 10 hours.
  3. It has several modes for the light, including white and red. In the white mode, you have low, high, and flashing for emergencies.
  4. It has a waterproof IPX6 rating, so it's good to go in the rain and even splashes from the river in a canoe.
  5. There's a "lockout mode", so you can lock it before putting it in your pack to preserve the batteries.
  6. The light hinges up and down so that you can send the beam where you want it. Straight ahead or at your feet.

The only things that were mildly bothersome were the weight (it's a bit heavy if you wanted to throw it in an ultralight gear pack) and the instructions. Although in English, they are more pictures than words and take some patience to understand. But if you have the time to do so, it's a very worthwhile piece of camping equipment to own.

Bottom line, if you have a chance to try this out and don't mind just a bit of extra weight to insure that you always have great light, this is your next headlamp.

This sturdy, well built, headlamp is great for tasks around camp. It is not incredibly bright at 100 lumens, but it’s a no-frills, get-the-job-done light. You can twist the front to go from soft 15 lumen light to the more direct spot of the 100 lumens.

It’s lightweight at a little over 6 oz and has an excellent price point, for its qualities, of $25. It provided plenty of light for walking around camp, gathering firewood and setting up the tent. I would not, however, use it for trail running. I prefer a much higher lumen rating for night running. 

It requires three AAA batteries, which were pleasantly included in the box, and lasts between 10 and 40 hours depending on lumen strength. Instructions and a 7-year warranty are also part of the package.
