As a starter level, relatively inexpensive headlamp, the Petzl Tikkina gets a 5 star rating. Comfortable and easily adjustable headband, dual light settings, long battery life, tiltable housing and water resistance all make for a great deal on an everyday headlamp. If you plan on spelunking, spend more money. If you plan on casual hiking, working under the house and reading in bed, buy this one. 23 lumens is enough to light up a dark room or illuminate a campsite, but will not blind your friends and family.I've read some complaints about flickering, but so far this hasn't been an issue for me. Overall a solid and lightweight piece of gear.

Although this beanie is at the bottom of the Mountain Hardwear price range, it is an great buy. The Polartec fleece is very warm down to about 30-35 degrees and is extremely lightweight and soft. It is perfect for stuffing in your back pocket on cool/somewhat cold days. It fits well, but in windy conditions gusts can sneak up under the edges although the fabric does cut a bit of the wind. However, it is not designed to be windproof, and for that I would recommend a MH windstopper beanie or something similar. For the price, and for fulfilling its duty, i'd give it a solid 4.5-5 stars. Yes there are nicer, but they cost more. Overall, the Mountain Hardwear Micro Dome is a solid piece of gear for the money. I've already taken it on one excursion and plan on several more.
