Rated 4 out of 5 by HikeTravel Great light, one drawback
The light works exactly as described. Its housing is more durable than housing used on many other headlamps. Its only drawback is the difficulty opening the battery door and corralling the batteries into their slots. Directions recommend removing batteries when product is stored; however, the difficulty noted discourages one from following these directions.
In spite of the above-mentioned problem, I anticipate a much longer life from this obviously more durable and otherwise easy-to-use headlamp.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Manancy My first
The members of my family all have headlamps. It was time I joined the group and put down my hand held flashlight. I saw one on sale, after checking the reviews, decided to purchase this brand unstead.
Well it is wonderful: easy to slip on and off, and most important to find the light control by feel. It is perfect for night time reading and checking on dogs. Just wish I had it when feeding the chickens in the dark of a winter morning.

This was a gift and it was exactly what he wanted. Dim enough for most thing, could be angled, all the different uses (flashing, etc) he could want. Was happy.

Just love this headlamp. Long battery life, good setting, light weight. Was very helpful for the night walks in Madagascar, and for walking dogs here, at home. My husband is very happy with it too. I had to order the second set for both of us!!!! The price is good too!!! I would highly recommend it to those who need it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by katspank No problems, sturdy and simple
I've been using this lamp for a few weeks, primarily for catching invasive frogs in my pond at night. The band is solid and fits well. Simple on/off rubber switch on top, with high and low beam setting. You can easily tilt the light down to the angle you need without removing it from your head. Not too heavy. If anything goes wrong in the next year I'll update!

Rated 3 out of 5 The product is excellent, with the optional lights
This was intended as a Christmas gift, so the product was ordered
in October, but didn't arrive until late January. This is my only
complaint. The product works well, uses AAA batteries, and the
3 lighting options (single, dual, or red lights) are nice.
I only wish you could have supplied them by Christmas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sepoko Excellent quality
The product is everything I expected from L.L. Bean. Construction is first rate. The battery life is exceptional. Quality and reasonable price. It will be put to great use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Aredub Buy It!--Better Than Most
I have owned several Trailblazers and, while nice, each broke, even when dropped on the carpet (battery weight breaks the hinge). But Bean is the best company ever, so the returns were appreciated. Have bought the two Black Diamond models and loved both, but the Cosmo is about $10 less than the other and every bit as good, so while I liked both, the Cosmo is an incredible value. I appreciate the red light and the two white light modes and the dimmers....could not be happier. I know that if I dropped this, it would be fine--there is no battery cover hinge to break.

I have two dogs that have to go outside after dark. By using this headlamp, I have two free hands in which to walk the dogs on leash and pick up excrement!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by bigstimpycat love it!
after my old headlamp died, i went looking for another. ll bean's child version & cheaper adult version both have issues with the battery compartment cover so i was hesitant to get one of those. this one seemed a little expensive but when i got 2 $10 coupons, i splurged & ordered it...glad i did! even with 3 aa batteries, it's very lightweight & comfortable to wear, the band is a snap to adjust & best of all, the battery compartment cover seems very durable & easy to open. the light is very bright (don't shine it in your eyes or you'll be blinded for a few minutes!) & the on/off switch is straight forward to use. it's simple to adjust the angle of the light so it's right where i want it. this may be a few dollars more but i think it's worth the price.
