To make it brief, this is at first glance a good product, at a reasonable price, but using it reveals a couple major design and/or construction flaws. It throws a bright light, and it's pretty lightweight and wearable. But I ran into quite a few problems right away.

(1) Although the headband is elastic, the wires connecting the battery pack to the light obviously are not, and they have no slack in them. So, on my average-sized head, the wires are stretched to the max, and it wouldn't fit on a larger noggin without pulling the light to the side.

(2) The light points UP. You can flip it to a downward-pointing direction, but if you do this it's just flopping around on a hinge. It should be designed to point straight ahead, and be re-orientable more securely.

(3) The closure on the battery case is flimsy. The very first time I tried to use my lamps in the field, the closure of one battery case broke off, rendering it unusable. I'll be able to tape it shut, but that shouldn't be necessary, especially not on the very first use.

(4) I wore the one that didn't break while running. While running, the bezel came unscrewed, and the bezel, lens, and bulb fell out on the trail. I was fortunately able to find them all and reassemble it, but this is another part I'll have to hold together with tape while using it.

So it seems good at first, and it's usable in a makeshift way, but is not nearly of the quality expected.

Was initially very impressed.
However, within a week, the tabs on the battery compartment snapped off and the battery no longer takes a full charge.

I was a bit skeptical about the quality of this head light for the price, so many things turn out to be less than advertised. This product however does not fall into that category. This is definitely a 300 lumen LED. I have a 220 lumen Redline Cree LED flashlight that I thought was the brightest thing I had ever seen until I turned on this headlight. The quality for the price is great. The main use for this LED headlight will be to wear when hog hunting. I don't think I will need to take a gun any more. This thing will blind them and then we can just tie them up and drag them away. Unless someone starts handing out sunglasses to the pigs.
Bottom line; good product, good price, ships fast.

I just got one of these this week and I've been less than pleased. The positive is that it really is bright. The negatives that I've experienced are noted by some of the other reviewers. It is too tight, I wear XL hats and this thing is tight when opened to the limit of the power cord. There is no adjustment with the hinged articulation of the lamp. It's all the way up or bouncing in its unlatched position. The worst thing is that after owning it all of 5 days I went to put it on last night an the plastic bar that retains the strap broke, now its essentially useless for me, as it can no longer correctly position the lamp on my forehead.

I purchased two different lights together. One, the "Camping Hiking light" 300 Lumen, and the "Securitying 1600 Lumen" light. The 300 lumen light is much brighter then the "supposedly" 1600 lumen light. Also the 300 lumen light came with the rechargeable battery and is well made, all for $13. The $31 1600 lumen has no battery and does not have an adjustable lens to go from spot to wide. I'm disappointed in the 1600 Securitying light, and would not purchase again. The 300 camping light is great so far. I ordered six now for work, and recommend purchasing.

Affordable, Very Bright, comes with a battery & it's Rechargeable.
I purchased this headlamp while working as a Spotted Owl surveyor in Oregon for my night hikes in the forest and it helped me stay safe every time I used it.
I originally intended for it to be a backup lamp but after seeing how brilliant the light was, it stayed in my equipment list every day. Tripping over fallen branches covered in thorny blackberry vines was a common occurrence for me but this lamp helped contrast the depth of the debris so I could estimate my steps much more easily.

Headlamp was much better quality than expected, and works very well. LED is very bright, and even the lower setting works well. The "charger' that it sounds like youre getting with this is just an adapter that plugs directly into the lights battery case, so basically you charge it like a cell phone. Anyway, this thing DUSTS those pretend 6 LED headlamps at the local chain stores which costs as much and mostly even more, the price is nice, it lights up dark basements like Grand Central which is good if youre running wire allday like me, and Im now convinced 18650 batts are the shiznit! Buy it, its a good product.

It puts out about the same amount of light as it's 3-AAA battery powered sibling, but the power cord is too short to effectively mount this on a bicycle helmet or caving helmet. The AAA powered unit has a curled and longer power cord.

I was very impressed with the brightness of this product but after a few hours of use it would drain the entire battery life

I purchased this for my wife for camping and it works wonders. It is very very bright and takes the "sure fire" type 123A batteries, which are a bit expensive, but last longer and are 3.3 volts making the light very bright. Great product for the price. I would actually think that this could be compared to a Petzel or other high end light.
