Flip'n GREAT (best light I've owned)

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I recently picked up one of these guys for myself after borrowing one for a fastpacking trip. Honestly when it come to head lights it?s hit and miss. Of course you?re going to pay for quality but at the same time some of the features that have come out are a bit gimmicky.
I will say this light has no gimmicks, no fancy software to program your light. It is however, straightforward, bright, and versatile.
My favorite feature with this head lamp is the flip up defuser that turns the spot light into a flood light. It works like a charm. I like running at night and I prefer a flood to a spot when I?m running.
On the topic of running with a headlamp, we all know the struggle to keep one on your noggin while exercising. Unlike most lamps in its price range, the battery pack on this Petzl is on the back of the head which distributes the weight better and helps to hold it tight and in place.
SImply put this light is a bargain deal for the price!
