As a work light this thing is great. It's comfortable and has a beam that is bright and not so focused that you have to keep moving your head to light up different spots of where you are working. The memory feature means the light turns on the the last-used setting with a single button push. The small size and light weight means it is easy to wear.
Then, I discovered that in addition to being an excellent work light that it's also great for reading in bed. The tilt feature allows me to sit/lie comfortably and have the light stay on the page. Having a red light means I can easily read at night without disturbing my wife, our daughter, or the dog (depending on who's in bed with me at the time). Also, I've found that, for me at least, it improves the contrast of what I'm reading.
The thing is light, comfortable, doesn't get in the way when I'm lying down, and illuminates the entire page I'm looking at without having to keep juggling the book or something attached to it.
I got tired of carrying it between my tool box and nightstand so the next time it went on sale I bought a second one.
Four stars instead of five because it's a tad pricey. (Wait for it to come available as a Lightning Deal.)
BTW, I feel that honest, effective reviews, accompanied by detailed videos, can take the place of first-hand experiences that are often lacking in online shopping. I've always appreciated the help I've received from other reviewers and try to return the favor as best as I can. I hope you found this review helpful and the video at least entertaining. If there was anything you thought was lacking or unclear leave a comment and I'll do what I can to fix it.
It is very sturdy offers a great beam of light for the white light with only one bulb. I have had it for just 3 weeks so no experiences with it running low yet but I am using it sparingly.
I would like to confirm that this is totally not the case. The clear housing of the headlamp does spill out some light, but it is very very minimal. I used my hand to block the bottom of the housing to compare and it really makes no difference. I also have have the Energizer 6 LED headlamp and that one spills out a lot of light onto my glasses making things hard to see.
Overall, I am very happy with the purchase. An upgrade to the Tikka XP 2 can be made for $5 by switching out the LED. Search for SSC P4 (which is the LED installed in Tikka XP 2) in google. Soldering skills are required for the upgrade.
After looking through all the different headlamps, I settled on this one for a couple reasons- it's LED based, so no bulb to break, and lots of battery life, it's light, the light unit is self-contained, with no wire from the light to the battery pack. The price isn't too bad compared to some, so if I lose or damage/destroy it, it's not a big deal.
I've used this light extensively since I received it almost a year ago, and it continues to impress me. There are brighter headlamps out there, so if brightness is your prime concern, you may want to look elsewhere. Personally, though, I do not feel the light output lacking, both around the house and for performing tasks around camp after dark.
Operation is as easy as installing the batteries (a single clip, which might be trouble for those with impaired dexterity in the fingers), and pushing the button. The button is recessed enough that I don't worry about it turning on in my pack, but still easy to operate, even with gloves on. At first I was concerned with the click-stop adjustment for angling the headlamp downward, but even after all the use I've given it, the stops are still just as tight as new.Read more ›

Bright LED, comfortable, and durable. The red light option is nice too so as to not blind others at night and keep your night vision when camping.Published 10 months ago by Mike Mags
