Why We Like The Flare Headlamp

We stuff the Flare Headlamp into our running vest in case we get caught on the trail when the sun goes down. The compact, ultralight design doesn't weigh us down and still gives plenty of light to safely navigate our way back to the trailhead.

Form + Function = Flare

I've used it several times

This thing is easily my favorite design in a headlamp and absolutely perfect for the just-in-case intended use. Minimal, rugged and super easy to change functions. One of these should live in every daypack, glovebox, junk drawer and handbag. Maybe I have a problem but I got the "Apple-level" feeling the design is so good on the Flare. I really hope BD carries this or similar design over to their alkaline / rechargeable battery lamps.

Nice Little Headlamp If...

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
True to size

You can actually open the package. And opening the package without drawing blood is a bonus. I have no idea why they put this tiny headlamp in Fort Knox like packaging. Meanwhile...it's a small, lightweight adequate headlamp to throw in my travel briefcase.


Great Headlamp

I wouldn't typically use this as my main headlamp, but its so light and small and perfect as back up if your headlamp dies mid climb/hike/tour etc. I actually took this on my latest river trip and it was the only one that I brought - it awesome since we had to pack so light and small and the moon was so bright so we only needed a little light. I will definitely be keeping this in my touring pack for all the sunset tours this winter! A good bang for the buck! I also love the different lighting options that it give you and how you just twist it rather than holding a button down.
