One word of caution to owners for this flash light.
Be aware that the battery lid to access batteries compartment is not well design. If you are not gentle and careful to open it, the security latch will break. This will cause the lid not to close and exert pressure on the batteries allowing the flashlight to operate.
I did manage to make it work by installing a thick rubber band crisscrossing it around the battery compartment to hold the lid in place (cheap..lol). Another drawback on this item is the internal pivoting system. Chances are that you might end up pivoting the flashlight back and forth to make the light work. Contacting issues will not allow the light to go on sometimes. That eventually will restrict the envelope action on this flashlight.
Honestly, I have not treat this item bad. I do handle and care for electronics very much so, regardless their applications.
Hope this works.

Rated 5 out of 5áby SassyPaws Comfortable to wear & bright at night/early am
I use this to take out our 3 dogs when it's dark and it's very convenient to be able to use both my hands when holding their leashes and picking up after them. I like that the head is adjustable to shine on the ground or straight ahead. Great for dog lovers.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Wubs Shine the light on it!
I was re-sealing my basement wall and it can in really handy to have an extra light right where I was. It worked great and lights where you need it to. Change the angle and shine it right where you want.

Rated 1 out of 5áby Lorichicopee disaappointed
I upgraded from the trailblazer, due to it not being bright enough..This one is more money and still not like the old cheaper Trailblazer...Hate the red lights..and the white lights are not half as bright as before....Used to be a great product and we used them all the time.used to be able to see at least 50 feet...... now a regular flashlight is better..Another great product bites the dust....

Rated 4 out of 5áby SocialStudiesTraveler Decent Light
Worked very well on a recent night hike up Old Rag in Virginia to catch the sun rise. My only two minor quibbles are 1 - the profile is a little bit wide, meaning it sticks out from your forehead quite a bit. I had another headlamp previously (can't remember the brand) that was smaller and more streamlined. 2 - This one doesn't seem to have a strobe function, or I haven't figured out how to switch it on yet.
Having said that I love the red light function, and it worked very well, provides great illumination. Should be perfect for all but the most technical of uses/users.

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.

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.
