This is my 2nd and hopefully my last headlamp. I use it for camping and sometimes some very late night yard chores. I mostly use the 3 LEDs on the low setting and get adequate task and navigation light. The single beam packs quite a punch and if you really need to see what's around you (like finding that difficult campsite) it's like having a small Maglite strapped to your head, without the weight. I especially like that it's waterproof.
