Rated 5 out of 5 by RayinMaine Great Headlamp
I carry this in a small Ziploc in my fishing vest/hunting vest/snowmobile jacket - whatever. When it gets dark too soon and you are in the pucker brush, start with the bright red lite. As you get used to the dark, go to the dim red. Thing will last for a long time. If you need white light, you have two choices. This is my GET HOME light. I carry spare batteries in a waterproof box - for everything - GPS, etc. I generally use a clip on lite on my hat for casual use, but save this for real problems. Hint - put it on your head then put your hat over it. Do NOT put it on your hat. If your hat gets knocked off there goes your light. I have another one for around camp - use it all the time. Buy one of these - you will like it. Helps a 72 year old man go where he probably should not go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Buyer101 Quality product and mfg support
I have owned (4) of these lights now for (2) years. The red LED is key to keeping night vision in tact for on coming hikers and cyclists. The battery box lid latch for one headlamp broke. I spoke to the manufacturer about the issue and they immediately sent me a replacement lid for free. Nice touch!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MikeD176 Excellent light
This is an excellent headlamp for the price. The brightness is more than I would possibly need unless stranded on a desert island somewhere. The only thing I notice is that I had to expand the headband all the way to make it comfortable. Its fine for me, but for someone with a large head it would probably be too snug for comfort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Longshadow Great for hands free work.
I like this lamp because it has a red beam to preserve night vision when working with my camera outside at night. The white light is perfect for getting wood from the wood pile at night, which is not lit by the porch light. It's comfortable and easy to use. It would be good for under the sink work also, as well as reading maps at night. It's nice and bright.

This is a great product. I use it when taking my dogs for evening walks. Light is very strong and comfortable. Have no problem seeing whats ahead of me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by crawdaddydoo92 Great Little Light
I got this to be more visible and be able to see when walking home from where I pick up a shared vehicle; at times this is up to 1/4 of a mile. I like that this light is versatile in how it can be worn. Be that while wearing a hooded jacket and with or without a baseball cap, yes the downward range is a bit limited with the cap but not enough that it doesn't work on the lowest angle to be able to see in front of you. I like that it has a high/low setting for both the red led and the white light so that I can use in in a variety of situations. I'll definitely be using this light a lot.

This is a great product! Very versatile and effective.
But it is a little on the expensive side....

Rated 5 out of 5 by keeperofcats Excellent astronomy headlamp
This headlamp is excellent for telescopic observing. Plenty of white light for set up and tear down of a telescope. The red light has a bright and dim setting - bright is great when you need a lot of light for finding equipment and the red is best when finding parts and such when you want to keep your eyes as dark-adapted as possible.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Nunyabiznis Inferior Light
Gave an extra star since the light does work, other than that, a poor product. Difficult to operate properly with the push pad switch and no lock/off function to avoid accidental power up. I own the Standard Trailblazer w/o Red LED's, the Trailblazer w/Red LED's and this one. For camping or any use, the Trail Blazer w/Red LED's is by far superior to this lamp. I believe it is brighter, but the functionality of it is awesome! Positive function switch w/Lock Out. Take my word, it is a fantastic lamp and is less expensive, go figure. The Trailblazer w/o Red LED's is an excellent choice and I use these in my emergency road kits for my motor vehicles in the event of night emergent repairs. Please... I do not believe you will be happy with this Trailblazer XR at any price, well maybe 5 bucks, but is poorly designed/engineered. Happy Trails....

Rated 5 out of 5 by treesniffer Excellent for Viewing My Vivarium
I use this solely for one reason - to watch my pet amphibians at night when they are most active. Most amphibians and reptiles are active at night. Frogs cannot see the red light as they scout about their elaborate vivarium, complete with waterfall. This lamp is a good gift for those enjoying their amphibians (absorb water through their skin) or reptiles (drinks water using its mouth.)
