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.
