does the job

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is a solid piece of equipment. Not nearly as bright as more heavy larger headlamps but for most needs this thing does the trick. You can see, it's reliable, it's lasted me regular use over a number of years. Battery lasts a respectable amount of time. Not tons of options for the light strength but that's not really necessary most of the time. Love switching it to red to preserve my vision at night. If I only owned one lamp this wouldn't be it, but as my back-up it does the trick.

Super reliable piece of gear....

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

2 deployments to Iraq, 50 business trips, now my 10 year old uses it for everything and its still going.

This thing has seen all different climates and uses. I have used it on two deployments to Iraq and I was a night crew pilot so the light lived around my neck and was in constant use (not while flying), also used aboard the family sailboat and now my 10 year old has appropriated it for his ski backpack, I bought myself a new one.

It has resisted sweat, talcum like dust, repeated impacts and shocks, near misses by RPGs and aerial rockets and hours and hours of vibration.

Battery life is great and varying brightness settings are a must have.

Buy it!

Never leave at home

The one piece of gear you should never leave at the house. This light weight little headlamp is seriously powerful. Bright enough for trail running and possibly some slow road/mt biking. The battery life is great and still bright after many hours of use. A great stocking stuffer for the holidays!

Solid headlamp

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Great headlamp with a lot of different settings. In it's maximum light mode it puts out plenty of light for night hikes. The red light is perfect for hanging around the campsite and making sure that you don't blind your fellow campers or ruin anyone's night vision. Batteries last a long time and I like that it indicates when the batteries are starting to run low. No complaints!

Great lamp

Much improved over the original TIKKA headlamp series. Plenty of light and red lamp option to save the night vision. Superb!

I love this headlamp. I am currently on round two (i gave my first a real beating.. and left it in the rain for... a few.. days. my bad). But even wearing it out in rainy weather is totally fine! It's a solid piece with awesome settings, in your tent, out at night, or reading. LOVE IT. a campion headlamp. I highly suggest it.

Great Headlamp

Very happy with the product, comfortable and very bright, worked well when setting out on a hike after work and being forced to hike 4 miles to the campsite in the pitch black. More manlier color options would be appreciated...

Could be brighter

I used it on a backpacking trip and my buddy had one he bought for $10 at Wal-Mart and it was twice as bright. Needless to say he led the night hike. Other than that it is comfortable and the red light comes in handy so you don't blind your friends.

It's a headband with a light

Does pretty much what you would expect, whens it dark it lets you see where you are going. the red light option is pretty cool but I haven't used it much. it's comfortable to wear for extended periods. Ideal for car camping and short night hikes.

Pretty Sweet

I just bought this after losing my Tikka Plus, and it is way better. At first I thought the red light would be a waste, but it was great when my wife wanted to sleep but I wanted to read in the tent, since I could read and not keep her awake with a bright white light. Lamp has great adjustment and stayed on for 8 hours straight in sub zero temperatures on a recent big hike. Can't beat that for the price.
