-after using this product for an extended period of time, I thought I could learn how to push the buttons first try. I can't. Either I'm incompetent, or they are poorly designed, likely both, however they are only buttons, and I've been pushing them my whole life, so I will lean toward flaw of design. But when it's cold out and I can't feel much, I really struggle, thus the use of gloves is def. out.
-after the first or second day of use, the thread on the strap failed and the band came undone. I spoke with the guys at the Outdoor Retail show and they said they hadn't heard of it occuring before. So likely a fluke, considering the quality is bomb proof and sheds a whole lotta light. Although I have two gripes, I dig the headlamp and still recommend it. Even on low, my buddies are always mentioning how bright it is.
We managed to put a man on the moon, so i give 4 stars for their failure to provide quality buttons.
