I've used it several times

I’m not sure how something as simple as a headlamp could be difficult to use, but somehow they’ve figured it out. After using for 3-4 nights, it still takes me 20-30 seconds to change from white to red light. It’s a multi step process that drives me crazy. Even something as simple as changing the batteries can end up taking a couple minutes. But, thanks to Backcountry’s crappy return policy I guess I’m forced to keep this.
