  This was not the cheapest head lamp on the market, but once it had been delivered you can feel it is high quality. This is a well made item and should last a lifetime, therefore very good value for money. Switching through the options for the two lights is not immediately intuitive, but you quickly get used to it. The actual lamp assembly feels as if it is going to be heavy to wear, but once you've got the head straps adjusted correctly, it is quite comfortable for everyday use. Even for those of us with not much thatch on top. Overall I'm pleased with this product, and I would recommend it to others. It's always worth spending a little bit extra to get the best.

  When this arrived I thought it solid, but heavy on the head, and the use of the various light functions non intuitive. I found the ability to adjust brightness a big plus and the weight in use was not an issue for the work I was doing. That said I think for walking at night I would prefer a lighter weight on my forehead mitigated if your wearing a hat. I used this at for maybe two hours on max brightness not Turbo and when hooked up for recharge was impressed it claimed to still be fully charge so the long run time I expect to prove out which is great.

  Completely worth the money. There are so many features on this headtorch. I urge you to check it out on social media. There are similar headtorches out there with less features and cost more. One of the features on this torch will even last for up to six months. The torch comes with a 18650 rechargeable battery but you can also buy CR123a or the rechargeable RCR123a batteries for spares which will give you a longer runtime. Woodlore also sells the PowerPax battery holder for these which glow in the dark so you can find your spares at night. I highly recommend this headtorch.

  This head torch was recommended by a friend and as normal his recommendation was spot on. After taking some time to go through and learn the controls for the various light functions, I was ready to give it a test run on a night hike. The main light has a number of brightness settings and the beam is more than sufficient to light the trail ahead. The wide bands provide a good adjustable fit and it felt stable/comfortable after a couple of hours walking. I find the light angle adjustment a little stiff but I'm sure this will give a little and is definitely better than being too loose. Charging was very easy and the battery indicator feature is a nice touch. I have bought a backup none rechargable just incase. The battery indicators blue light also backs up as light which can be left on intermitant flash so that you can find it in your bag in the dark. This head torch was quite an upgrade on my Petzl and the quality is awesome. I don't normally write reviews but I definately felt that this torch deserved it. I am now confident to embark on my next adventures knowing this won't let me down.
