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.)

Rated 3 out of 5 by TheOneCleanHippy Not Worth the High Price Tag
I bought this item thinking that I would get good quality considering it was considerably more expensive than most headlamps. The lights are very bright, and it is nice that it comes with both red and white lights and that both have a low and a high setting. However, the default light is red and you have to hold the button down to get to white. Then if you stay on the low white for more than a few seconds, you have to cycle back through all four settings to get to the high white. This can be very frustrating when trying to do something in complete darkness. Also, the white light will periodically flash several times once you turn it on. All in all, the performance definitely does not match the price tag and I would recommend getting a cheaper option.

This durable headlamp solved a safety problem on the desolate night time slopes for my skinning/skiing training for the Imperial Challenge!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Windhover1 Terrible product quality
LL Bean's Trailblazer headlamp is an attractive, light (weight wise), and bright headlamp. Unfortunately, the battery closure is remarkably fragile and the plastic battery casings are not symmetrical - two batteries are easily moved in and out, the 3rd with much difficulty. The latter problem is workable but not the terrible closure quality. After replacing the batteries one time, the plastic door clasp simply fell apart. Cheap material renders this otherwise praiseworthy lamp, a very poor investment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bugz2020 Bright?
Much brighter than the other headlamps I've been using to take my dogs out for walks in the early morning and at night. I figure the dude in the wrecked Taurus must have had welding glasses on when with the light shining through his windshield and onto his face we (dog Ruger) and I had to dive over a snow bank to avoid getting squished.
Otherwise easy to operate, with gloves. Press and red light comes on. Press and hold and white light comes on. Press again to cycle to brighter light or from red low, red high, white low, white high.

Purchased one for my husband, which pleased him as he could use it for several situations. Our sons have used it and wish they had one too as they are electricians and often working with limited light until power is restored or establioshed. Will be ordering two more real soon!
