I love this headlamp SOOOOO much! I was at a NOLS wilderness EMT course and I found this to be my favorite piece of gear all month. It was very helpful walking back to the cabin at night because it was pitch black out. I loved the lens that distributes the light and makes it much easier to read when there is no other light source. The red light was extremely helpful when taking care of patients in the wilderness because it didn't blind them and was a more comfortable light while letting you see. The strobe was great for signaling for help if you r stranded or in my case, signal for help while caring for patient and creating shelter. The bright setting was great for scoping terrain in the middle of the night in order to evacuate a patient off a mountain. The light beam was extremely long and enabled me to see farther in the distance. I sorta miss depending on this headlamp. Will not disappoint.
