One of the ten essentials you don’t want to leave behind.

This headlamp is the best I've owned (mostly Petzl otherwise). It is light but provides a great amount of focused and wide-angle illumination. When you hold the button for a couple seconds you access the super bright mode, which has been very handy in small detail work like fixing the fly on a gusty night. I really appreciate having such a bright light with no batteries on the back of my head so I can still lay in bed and read. I use rechargeables and the power lasts a few months of regular use around the house and car and backcountry camping.
Best of both worlds
Best mix between a focused beam and traditional flood light. Mammut uses less Lumens and gets better quality light because they have superior optics, this translates into longer battery life and a better quality light than the other companies. additional bonus is that this works with their ambient light attachment which makes the headlamp double as a lantern.
Nice bright light. I wish it was more water resistant. The light does point straight out and can rotate down several degrees for use as a work head lamp.
The beam is very focused and isn't the best choice for lighting up a large area. However it is very bright, light, and more than does the job. In a side by side comparison with BDs competing lamp, the BD is brighter and has more varied lighting options. I wouldn't have been thrilled if i payed full price for this. Very good headlamp.
Great head torch
I have been using this light for a year now and love it! It is superlight...it always finds its way into my pack for ski tours and all adventures. I even put it on the dog for walks at night. I dig the three setting which is perfect for multiple uses. Highly recommend.
what you're paying for is the weight
what you're paying for is the weight. it's light, as in it doesnt weigh much. i could see this as an advantage if youre using this on night runs or if you're packing for a camping trip and weight is critical. but it's not waterproof nor is the light output the greatest at this pricepoint. even at SAC prices, there are better options out there if you are not a weight weeny.i was using this as a headlamp while biking. but had to remove it from my helmet every time it rained. i ended up replacing it with a Tikka 2 Plus. the tikka has more features and is waterproof.BTW. the description says that it has 3 brightness settings. mine only has 2; bright and brighter. are they counting OFF as a brightness setting? or does the updated version have 3 settings?
-- update --
ok, there is indeed a 3rd setting as pointed out by a helpful user. but my 3 star rating still stands.
This is killer light weight head torch. Has a great fit and feel. Perfect for a smaller size torch
Super light and uber versatile. Long range spot and flood for close in light is amazing in this tiny and light package. Batteries last and last still on my original ones and have used this for hours with no loss of power. This is all you need for most tasks.
How does the light switch from spot to...
How does the light switch from spot to flood beam?
when you push the button on the side to turn the lamp on, push it again immediately to switch between the light functions. this is a great headlamp.
The flood and spot both are on all the time. there are two brightness settings. Just push the button to go from low to high.
Actually, there are 3 light levels. The first two are accessible by pushing the side button. The third (brightest level) is accessed by holding the button in for 3+ seconds when the headlamp on. I assume this wastes significant power, so was purposely made difficult to engage.
Maybe they changed the design recently but mine has 3 settings - Low -> Medium -> High. To switch through them you just click the power button on the side. No extending holding down of the button is needed. And there is no difference between a flood or spot light.
Never Been Happier With A Product
So I didn't know what to buy my relatives this last X-mas, I bought my father, grandfather and 2 brother in-laws these TXlites.
They absolutley loved them!! They said they were the best presents I'd ever given them!
They loved switching back from the spot to a flood beam, and used them for everything.
My grandfather uses his daily, and calls it a miracle of modern technology!!
These were hands down the most popular presents I ever gave!
small, light, bright!
I love this little headlamp! The battery life is great and the beam is so bright! The compact size makes it easy to stuff in a pocket for evening adventures that might turn into a nighttime excursion. The combination of the spotlight with the flood is superb and provides good range and great light quality.
