Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I don't remember how long I've had this head lamp, but I got it to replace my lighter Petzl, the one that has the retractable retainer head strap? I have found that it just wasn't bright enough while out roaming in the night, probably cause I'm getting into my 50's now. So I bought the BD Icon. I really love the light options with tilting, dimming, red to BRIGHT for those moonless walks at night. I feel much more secure walking in the dark. I even keep it next to my bed when I'm home and travel. The batteries do seem to last long. Then only CON - is the weight. But if I'm going backpacking and weight is an issue, I will just plan on staying near the tent and bring the light weight head lamp.
I really do like the BD Icon !
