Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I was skeptical at first of this headlamp because of the feel of the plastic housing. It seemed cheap and brittle. But after taking it to the field for three weeks both of them- as I had bought two- held up just fine; much better than expected. They got wet, beat around in my pockets, and stuffed into a ruck sack. Battery life is easily as described, thoroughly impressed. Really nice feature: you don't have to switch through all the lights to get to red, or red to white. It remembers what mode you were in, red or white, after shutting it off. Brightness settings are great. It is an area or loom light, not focused. So if you are trying to shine out a ways at a point it is not the light for you, but to thoroughly light up a room or campsite it is the light for it. Would buy again!
