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!!!!

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
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
Piece of junk. Don’t waste your money. Broke after less than two weeks of moderate use. Contacted the company twice with no response . Full review
I've used my Dion lightweight snowshoes for snowshoe running and races for 10 years. They are the best! Easy to repair—take into a shoe repair shop for new rivets after 7 years. Parts easily available. Have done up to 8 races in a season. They have had lots of use and keep on going. Recommend 100%! Have said enough above. They are exceptionally strong snowshoes. Full review
Came highly recommended. Worn three times and they started coming apart. Rubber broke on both shoes. Grippers broke off from both shoes. Really disappointed as they came highly recommended. Not fit for purpose if they broke up on Day 3. Full review
Difficult to maintain position of cleats even after extensive adjustments. Extremely tough to adjust in freezing conditions. Work well when descending steep trails. Running on level ground or ascending pulls cleats too far forward. I bought these at the recommendation of a friend. Desired use was for trail running in late autumn/early winter along a trail starting at around 2000 feet, cresting at 10,000. Looking for a product that could be added to shoes above the snowline and removed when lower… Full review
I am a woman (shoe size 6-7) and this snowshoe did not work for me at all. I bought these snowshoes to run in and could not even hike for any distance in them as I was constantly fiddling with straps etc... Atlas snowshoes used to have a good reputation but the quality has gone downhill. The strap is too rigid so it is hard to stretch them into the required slots. Even so, they slip off after walking for a few minutes. So, impossible to run in. Perhaps someone with bigger feet would have more success,… Full review
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
