Sheds enough light to be very useful
Just used this headlamp for the first time. The outer lights don't really seem to cast to much light but the center beam is plenty bright for night excursions. The center spot also works well for lighting up images for photo ops in the dark. It seemed like even though this is an LED headlamp the batteries seemed to go pretty quickly when using the center bulb. Once the batteries are low the on/off gets really picky, maybe I just had poor batteries to start, but as soon as I changed them it functioned normally. This headlamp definitely worked for hiking out of a slot canyon in the dark.
