Review 4 out of 5 stars

The diffuser lens is excellent (I use it diffused far more than not). the battery life is incredible (have had it for 9 months of regular use and the battery is not empty yet). The weight and bulk are pretty good although if I were to buy another light I might just buy a Tikka or Takktina (or however it is spelled). With fresh batteries they are almost as bright, a lot lighter and a bit cheaper. The boost function is really useful as well. The tilt works well. I would definitely recommend this headlamp.

As the others said, great lighting, good battery life, extremely compact. The diffuser lens is great for night hiking/rapping while the "spot light" is perfect for night climbing.

Almost all the power and battery life of the Myo XP, but in a more compact package that comes $20 cheaper.
I've had this headlamp for a month now and I absoloutely love it. The focused beam is bright enough that I've retired my Maglight from Camping use, and it's diffused beam is excellent for stumbling around camp at night. I've been using this light a lot, and the battery life indicator is still showing green, I couldn't be happier with it.

Only slightly less bright than the Myo XP, but much lighter, more compact, and still nearly as good of battery life. Boost mode lights up those scary nighttime rappels and the diffuser lens spreads the light out for on-trail traveling and just working around camp. Definitely one of the best headlamps on the market. The $50 price tag is well worth it.
