Customer Reviews

Comments: I just got this headlamp but I'm really liking it so's super bright and battery seems decent (though the fact that it requires five hours to completely charge is a bit ugh). Reactive lighting is awesome when you're running on say an isolated bike path or trail. However, it can be a pain when running against traffic because the headlamp will turn off the second headlights hit it....and that's not as awesome as it sounds. You can opt to keep the light constant versus reactive but that does mean less battery. I'm still getting the hang of it...

Comments: Very bright light and long lasting. Provides a long wide beam of light when running in early morning or late at night. Reactive lighting mode is usually more than enough if street lamps are around (Note: I only used this to run at an easy 7:30-8:30 min/mile pace) but regular mode can provide full power if in complete darkness. Not super light but the strap is secure and comfortable I find for 1 hour+, can also be removed to hand wash. The lamp can be adjusted to different angles.
