When you say overkill for your application...might this light then be good if one was hiking and darkness fell, but one wanted to press on?
Aloha, seeing as you kept this and have it for a while now, whats your thoughts on it ? looking for a waterproof headlight and this has caught my attention
I've got one of these and really like it. Aloha's initial assessment is pretty spot on. It's a fairly serious light. Bright and long lasting but, while comfortable to wear, you wouldnt want to go jogging with it. Its solid Edit to add that the micro USB charging is a big plus for me .
thanks Clown, do you think it's suitable for night hiking / kayaking so wearing it for 4 - 5 hours at a stretch ?
Yes I think it would be a great choice for those activities.
Clown, have you tested how waterproof it is ? Had some black diamond headlights that were supposed to be waterproof - the lamp part was alright but the battery compartments allowed water in so it didn't end well.
