Description

A fresh spin on classic LED headlamp design.

Before you strap that truck headlight and car battery to your head, grab the Princeton Tec Remix Headlamp and revel in the adjustable illumination its of super bright LEDs. A large push-button switch toggles between multiple brightness settings, while a vertically swiveling mount aims your beam. Whip up a quick camp meal with the Remix set to a wide beam, or pick out holds further up your climb with the ultra-bright long-distance setting. With a slim, lightweight design, you'll hardly notice the 45 lumens of illumination until they're lighting your way back to camp.

Perfect cheap do-it-all headlamp

I bought two of these to keep around the house for power outages and to loan out to friends in need for trips. Not crazy lightweight, but not exactly a forehead mounted brick either. The battery life on them has proved to be lengthy and they are surprisingly versatile. Definitely recommend them.

*I would like to note the plastic seems like it may get brittle in vary cold weather, or overly pliable in high heat*

Like it better than mine

Got this for my wife, but started using it for myself after I borrowed it. It was lighter than my other lamp, battery life was longer and the settings were easier to adjust. I guess in short this is more user friendly. BTW I have the Princeton Tec EOS and I would recommend this over that.

Worth the price

For less than $20, this headlamp is a great buy. Very bright; LEDs can be adjusted for multiple levels of brightness, Maxlight LED is much more like old-fashioned incandescent bulb & nice alternative.

Only drawbacks I would address are the lack of a blinking light or red adjustment light, but otherwise well worth the price.

All around useful

Solid headlamp for the price. I use it to walk around my house late at night and it is bright. I like to use it to ride my bike in the dark as well works well for this application as well as hiking.

Best headlamp ever

I use this light at least 2x's a week for my morning runs and I just LOVE it. It is super bright, light and comfortable to wear for hours of use. I have used quite a few different lamps and this one dollar for dollar is the best.

Perfect Headlamp

I spent way too long looking for the perfect headlamp (as I do with most gear choosing), but I came up with this one because I really wanted the ability to easily switch between short-range and long-range modes. The remix works perfect, is very lightweight, comfortable and has fantastic battery life. One thing I especially like about this lamp is the fact that to change between short- and long- range you actually hold the button down, instead of pressing it a certain number of times (that function is for brightness instead). Also, the button is nice, big, and responsive. I even like the different kind of style employed with this lamp. Overall, I can't think of anything negative to say, so five stars all the way. You won't be disappointed.

Best headlamp I've ever used.

I really have no complaints about this headlamp. It's super bright, has different brightness setting to save power when needed, and the batteries seem to last forever in this thing. Also, it is very durable and I've dropped it quite a few times with no issues.

Review Title

Very light on your head. Even if you loosen the headband, it stays on. The lowest setting provides sufficent light. I dropped mine from a high fall and thought that it broke. It turned on and still works. Good headlamp. The only thing bad about it is that it takes a lot of space and weight. You would be better off with a Petzl Zipka.
