My girlfriend and I got this headlamp in preparation for a weekend long camping trip at a primitive camping site - no electricity or camp-provided lighting. We used this headlamp extensively when cooking and performing other tasks in the dark. I found that the adjustable hinge for the light works well, and could bend to whatever angle we needed the light at. The highest position was perfect for just walking around and wanting to see as far out as you could, while the lowest position was ideal for tasks right in front of you, like tying knots. The light has two intensities, a "hi-beam" and "low-beam" setting, which can be accessed using the button on top. I found the two settings to be sufficient for whatever we needed the lamp for, and the button on top of the light was easy to access.The adjustable strap is comfortable, even for long periods of use, and can accommodate a wide variety of head sizes. I have a pretty big head, and it fits me nicely. The included batteries lasted the entire 3 day weekend, as well as me playing around with it for a bit in the attic at home. I can't speak as to the overall life of the batteries, but I know that LEDs are very efficient, and this lamp only has two. I may update this post with most info on the battery life as we use it more.One night during our trip, a torrential downpour started suddenly and our tent started leaking. This is when the Petzl had a true test. We decided it was time to abandon ship, and get everything out of the tent and into the car. I wore this headlamp while running around trying to gather things at the campsite and put them into the car. The Petzl cut right through the rain with the "hi-beam" setting on, making it easy to see in pitch black. The rain also had no effect on the light itself, and the band stayed snug on my head the entire time. All in all, this headlamp worked great, and is a good deal at this price. Highly recommended.
I bought the headlamp for night-time running and it works great! The lamp is very solid and locks into the tilt position so it doesn't bounce up and down on my forehead when you are running. The light is bright enough to see where I'm going. The strap is thick and soft and secure on my head. The lamp seems heavy at first but it's easy to get used to. Definitely a must-buy if you're going to be outside in dim or no-light conditions.
I use this light for running at night on a popular hike and bike trail. I like the simple, high/low control. The beam is wide, even and floody. The low beam provides just the right amount of light for my eyes without too much glare at oncoming runners. The high beam really lights up the trail. If it were much brighter, I think it would be obnoxious to other people on the trail. The hinge works well to raise or lower the beam. The strap is comfortable.
