Unanswered Question

G'day Backcountry! I am wondering if the Icon I see here on special is the newer 320 lumens model. You see, the video indicates otherwise- that it is the older 200 lumens model. If it is, and $71.96 is the price, then please send me one forthwith! No shipping cost for orders over $50 I understand. Thank you!

Not what it seems to be.

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I ordered this after deciding to return the Mammut X-Shot because it didn't have a red mode. After opening this light up and putting the batteries in it, and reading the directions twice to make sure I knew what I was doing, it became apparent that the only thing this headlamp has going for it is a red mode. It's quite a bit heavier than the X-Shot without batteries--the X-Shot only takes 3 AA--it's significantly darker, and the LED beam doesn't make any sense. There is no real spot beam. It's a bright--but nowhere near as bright as it should be--flood beam. I live in the woods at the end of a very long 1000+ foot driveway. The Mammut X-Shot clearly illuminated the end of my driveway on spot mode; the Icon lit maybe 1/3 of that.

I don't recommend it at all.

It does have a better waterproof rating than the X-shot--IPX7 vs the X-Shot's IPX6--and it has a 3 year warranty compared the X-Shot's 2. It also has a red mode, which works nicely. Other than that...

I ended up returning the Icon and kept the X-Shot.

Andrew, if you're still in the market try the Princeton Apex (not the Pro model) and prepare to be dazzled
