Decent Light Output, Great Battery LifeThis is another really well made light by Petzl at a bargain price. The brightness of the light output isn't super high, but I found it to be more than adequate. The quality of the construction is top-notch and much better than cheaper products that you might find at Wal-Mart, Target or Costco. Also, the low profile housing and generous amount of tilt adjustment work much better than bulky cheaper options.
We had purchased several headlamps at Costco for what seemed to be a really good price, but 80% of them no longer worked after a year. I got these as a replacement and expect to be using them for many years.

Comfy and PracticalThis light-weight head lamp was great for backpacking! I wish it had a red light option, but for this price it was money wells spent! Thanks MJ!

Disappointed....I bought 2 of these headlamps last year-one for me and one for my hubby. We have a small farm in Scarborough, Maine and I wanted to get us lamps that were reliable and comfortable without breaking the bank. I tend to take good care of my equipment....my husband...not so much. This being the case, you can imagine my surprise when after 2 months of use, my headlamp stopped working. I took it apart and saw that there was "powdery" residue on the batteries in the lamp. I cleaned this up, bought new (brand name) batteries and the light worked great for about a week before the same thing happened again.
Since my husband's light was functioning well I figured I got a "lemon." I ordered a replacement and within a month THE SAME THING HAPPENED! While I wasn't expecting the moon and stars with a $15 headlamp, I was certainly expecting to get more than a combined 3 months of use out of both lamps. Pretty disappointed.
