Rated 5 out of 5áby stlshopper A good headlight
This is the cheapest of LLBeans headlight headbands. It works perfectly well. The headband is comfortable and solidly constructed. The light attaches easily. It is more than sufficient for any normal use. It seems to be quite solid. It uses three AAA batteries. I would get it again if I needed one.

Rated 5 out of 5áby CaptDaddo Top of the line-
My daughter has this light. One of her youth tossed it to her and it smacked into the gym floor crackingbthe housing just before a major Grand Canyon R2R2R expedition. Duct tape got it through and I got this to replace her broken light. Excellent on night trail and fully functional. Great light and we love LL Bean.

Rated 4 out of 5áby BostonianTravelGirl So much ease and flexibility in lighting choice!
In previous reviews I saw mixed feelings shared about the way this headlamp is designed, I have to say that in my opinion the switch to operate the red and white lights is totally genius. Short clicks of the single button cycles you through the three red light options, from low to high power, then to the bright white LED, then off. If you want to jump straight to the white LED and bypass all of the red options, just hold the button down for a few seconds and it skips the red lights entirely. This is great design for someone like me who strongly prefers to use red lights at night, but also needs and wants the flexibility to quickly switch to a high power white beam as needed. Can't wait to field test this, to see if the battery life is anywhere near what is promised. If it is, this may be my new favorite headlamp. Only criticism is that I'd like to see the plastic piece that attaches to the strap be a little more robust, as well as the cap for the battery compartment. Definitely the weak links on this item. Good job with the engineering of the switches, though!

Rated 5 out of 5áby JonathanH Excellent headlight
I have had this light for years and it hasn't let me down. I use it everywhere from doing electrical work to camping in the woods. It is extremely bright when you have it on the brightest white setting but I find myself using the red lights the most as to not hurt my night vision.
Great light for the price and batteries last for ever in it. Buy it.

Very bright light!! Love that you can take the light off of the strap and click on a belt. Definitely the brightest one of these I've found.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Oliver708 Great for camping and power outages
I use this primarily for camping on GOBA, the Great Ohio Bicycle Adventure and it puts the light where you want it while leaving your hands free at night. It would also be handy at home in the event of a power outage at night but I have not had to use it for that purpose. On GOBA I also use an LL Bean small LED lantern in the tent.

Rated 5 out of 5áby crawdaddydoo92 Perfect for me
I got this as the other model was not good for when I wear gloves, like in the winter. I love this light as it allows me to see and be seen at night when I walk home. I recommend this light to all my friends.

Rated 5 out of 5áby 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 5áby 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 5áby 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.
