This is a great multi-purpose headlamp. It is sturdy and can handle some water and dust. It is fairly comfortable to wear and is not nearly as bulky as the Apex. The only complaint I have is that the light tends to be focused in a single beam. Many of the multi-LED headlamps have a better short range dispersed light with greater battery life, however this light has a much better range on it, so it depends on what you want the light for.

I use this headlamp for caving and I love the flip up lens for dispersed light and the programmable feature is great for getting the ideal battery life/light output combination. The only problem with it is the battery pack. It has a cover that is simply a flexible sleeve which fits over the batteries. It is not dust or water resistant at all. This is a good headlamp, but not for wet or dusty conditions.

This is a good caving headlamp that I have taken on many trips. It seems to be pretty water and dust resistant and takes abuse fairly well. I also have a Petzl Myo RXP that doesn't seem nearly as heavy duty. I walked into a basalt roof and hit the front of the lens very hard, and it came out with a hairline crack.
