I've used quite a few headlamps and have done my research extensively. The extra money spent on the Nao are worth every penny. I needed a great, not good, headlamp for the Bryce 100. This light exceeded my expectations. Brightest light I've ever used which gives more faith and confidence running trails through the night and not worrying about tripping on a root or rock. I purchased the battery belt clip at the same time but didn't require the use of it. Fits very well and secure. Doesn't bounce. Didn't even know it was there except for the bright lights. Did I mention this thing is bright...,Can use an extra battery pack or less expensive route to charge on the go with a portable charger. Can't go wrong with this bad boy. Very happy with the purchase. Would I recommend it-hell yeah if you're working (playing) at night.
