As stated by Shake and bake this is a good light and yes, you do need to use a halogen bulb for better light. I have used it at night for hiking and around the camp. Great inexpensive light.

Price Paid: $15

Have owned this for 10-15 years and it is the only headlight that I own. I would recommend using halogen bulb for extra brightness. Seems to suck batteries down quickly.  It has been flawlessly reliable.

Price Paid: gift

This was my first headlamp and I loved it dearly, but looking back I realize how much it sucked. The beam was full of artifacts and was not very bright, but it was my reliable "take anywhere" source of light for many years, but I would not recommend this light. Princeton Tec makes much better products than Petzl and are better on batteries and their beams are awesome bright, white, and smooth as can be.

Price Paid: $22.99
